General[edit | edit source]

The Plasma Shell is a ship shield that is highly resistant to Plasma Damage, but takes increased damage from other sources. It can only be used on Altairian Hulls.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

Like the previous shells, Plasma Shells have excellent shield energy and mass efficiency, even greater than that of the Harmonic Exophase Shield. They have a very low repair to health ratio unlike earlier shields and are therefore viable on low-repair ships.

The Plasma Shell is able to resist Plasma Damage, making it the first shield to be able to do so, making it extremely effective against Pharmakon Hulls that use Plasma weaponry. It is also the only shield that is immune to Plasma Nebula Fields.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

Plasma Shells take increased damage against all other damage types.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Hulls with active Plasma Shells glow with a pink coloration.
  • Interestingly, this and the Xeno Shell are the only Shell shields without any special attributes. This is likely because they resist a damage type that is less commonly seen.
  • The Plasma Shell was granted immunity to Plasma Nebula Fields in the late April 2019 update.
  • Plasma Shell has received immunity to Alien Nebula Fields in the early November 2019 update.
