Mental Omega Wiki

The Force Shield is a support power used by the European Alliance from their Shield Command. It protects the affected friendly structures from any damage for a period of time, useful for saving important structures from being heavily damaged or destroyed by enemy attacks.

If a building is placed within a Force Shield after it is activated, the building will not become invulnerable.

AI behavior

The AI will use Force Shield immediately after an offensive superweapon activation (or a missile launched by the Tech Missile Bunker) against their base. The AI is able to predict where a superweapon will hit accurately.

The AI will not use Force Shield against a Fake Domination.


Use the Force Shield to protect the most important buildings if necessary.
