Shields are a buffer that absorb damage before a legend starts losing health. Shields are gained by equipping a Body Shield.svg Body Shield, which grants the player anywhere from 2-4 bars (depending on rarity); each bar absorbs 25 points of damage. They do not automatically regenerate (with the exception of Wattson's Interception Pylon.png Interception Pylon), but can be replenished by using shield-restoring items or by equipping an undamaged body shield.
