Boom Shield

Boom Shield

LOCUST WEAPON


The Boom Shield is a heavy piece of armor that can be carried in combat or planted in the ground to deflect frontal attacks. Generally only one handed weapons can be used in combination with the Boom Shield, except in Gears of War Judgment. Roadie Running with the Boom Shield negates the shield's purpose and leaves the holder vulnerable to attacks. 

It was first introduced in Gears of War 2.
