Afaics shields do not regenerate automatically and seem to be "additional healthpoints" on top of the regular healthpoints.

  • Do shields take 100% of damage?
  • Are shields affected by better armor?
  • Are there upgrades for shields?

The only difference between the two are what items you use to replenish them. In addition, only health will take damage from being outside the ring.

The shield/armor upgrades (white to blue to purple/yellow) give 50/75/100 maximum shields. Each bar in the HUD is worth 25.

    Also, Caustic's poison goes through shields.

  • Still, when you are being shot, both health and shield are deducted. So shield must work somehow to decrease damage, not replace health.
