General[edit | edit source]

Mesh Screen is a enhanced form of T7 Pharmakon Screens such as the Spectral Screen that provides increased screen energy and resistance to all three traditional damage types - Energy Damage, Explosive Damage and Kinetic Damage. It is restricted to Tier 8 Pharmakon.

Plasma Mesh Screen and Blight Mesh Screen have very high resistance against Plasma Damage and Blight Damage respectively but both have no resistance to the traditional damage types whatsoever.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

Mesh Screen is plain better than its T7 counterpart, with vastly improved mass efficiency as well as absolute screen energy value, yet carries the same XP value. The same could be said for its elemental versions.

Level I-III Mesh Screens can resist three damage types, making them more versatile than the Spectral Screen, Shockwave Screen and Deflector Screen, which only resist two.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

The mass efficiency drops from level I to level III, so it is more efficient to use multiple level I screens than a single level III screen.

The elemental Mesh Screens take up significantly more mass than Mesh Screen III but only provide the same energy value. Thus, they are only useful when you expect to fight enemies that have weapons of the corresponding damage type.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Mesh Screen is the Tier 8 Screen defense.
  • All Screens were given 25% extra Screen Energy and 5% extra Defense in the late February 2020 update.
