Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
Metaphase Shields provide lots of protection - second only to the Spectral Shield. They resist many of the damage types used in combat, and are therefore the best shield to use in most situations.
They also give much lower XP than the Spectral Shield and other basic shields, protecting you from high-level fleets.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
Metaphase Shields have poor mass efficiency compared to the basic shields, but this is usually made up by their superior resistance stats.
They are relatively weak against Alien Event Targets and player hulls of Xeno Division and above which can use weapons of other damage types such as Alien Damage, Plasma Damage, Blight Damage and Void Damage.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Ships that have active Metaphase Shields glow red-orange, and are difficult to distinguish from those with Shockwave Shields.
- This is the first shield slot event prize in VEGA Conflict.
- Originally, the Metaphase Shield only had 80% defense.
