The Asian client has the ballistic shield implemented into the game. What does it feel like, you wonder?
How it works:
Walking puts the shield up front, taking most of the frontal damage. Emphasis on "most" is because it doesn't block all of them. Your legs are still exposed and, when strafing, so does your shoulders. So you can still get hit with shield on. Sprinting removes the shield, and your character is just running bare. You have a Desert Eagle as your weapon. it behaves exactly like as if it was a secondary weapon. It's not possible to shoot while shielded. Your primary way of killing is with your deagle, but you can also ram the shield on enemies, since you only have 28 bullets in the Deagle, you will run out of ammo. Ramming is like the CSGO front right-click knifing, except you need to press mouse1 to ram it. By the way, you can only fire the deagle if you right-click (ADSing). Pressing left click only will trigger the shield ram. Ramming with the shield is a TERRIBLE idea as enemy players can just knife you through the shield. Note that ADSing will render all except your stomach region exposed.
How good it is?
The shield is best used against snipers, which again received an ADS nerf. The shield is moderately effective against SMGs and are worst against ARs and LMGs. ARs pack a bigger punch on the arms and legs and LMGs have a lot of ammo + fire rate. You need to be good with the deagle in order to be most effective with the shield, and because of which, it's best used in mid range. The Ironsight in the shield's desert eagle isn't actually ideal for long range battles, either
The shield also sort of protects you from grenade blasts, but not the tactical nades nor the firebomb. It also provides 40% damage reduction on explosive barrels only. It's like having another blast protection perk on you.
Which gamemodes is it most effective in?
SnD (on a coordinated team) and Secure point. Pretty self explanatory why if you ask me.
The shield does not work as a frying pan b*** armour in PUBG, just saying...
Also, you can still have another secondary weapon with you, since the shield's desert eagle counts as a primary.
The shield cannot take in any attachments. The desert eagle cannot even take a sight.
Its clunky. I do see it being very powerful, but the lack of ammo and its clunky mechanics makes it sort of unenjoyable. And I'm the kind of guy who likes to play it safe.
