The game mentions that shields are weak to electric damage. Does this apply to full-body shields carried by Nomads and mini-bosses like Doc Mercy/Bad Maw?

    It seems sort of obvious that physical shields != energy shields.

    this was not obvious to me for a very long time in the game and I assume others have had this issue. Mar 7, 2013 at 1:09

No. The specific weakness to electricity only applies to energy shields worn by enemies, which are the equivalent of the energy shields worn/equipped by players. Enemies with energy shields weak to electricity will have a blue bar above their health, as seen in image B below.

Image A denotes a physical shield worn by a Nomad (not weak to electricity). See this post to deal with them.

Image B denotes an energy shield equipped by Master Gee (weak to electricity).

No, "shields" in that context means energy shields, not metal shields.
