|EDF Riot Shield|
|Faction||Earth Defence Force|
The EDF Riot Shield was a defensive protection shield that was used by Earth Defence Force troops during the Second Martian Revolution. The shield will typically be held in the left hand, while the trooper wields a weapon in the other hand, usually an EDF Gauss Rifle, the Enforcer or Peacekeeper automatic shotgun.
The shield is completely resistant to hits from low-caliber ammunition, though there are some areas of the trooper left uncovered by the shield that can still be hit. Alternatively, they can be flanked, or heavier ordnance can simply be used to overwhelm troops that are carrying the shield.
