Usage & Description[]

The 1340 shield is useful when not paying attention to the shield's charge bar, since running low, becoming depleted, taking elemental damage, or becoming recharged triggers a voice cue. Other than the unique voice module, the shield's stats seem to be in a similar range to those of any other blue absorb shield.
