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.

The AI will use Force Shield immediately after a superweapon activation (or a missile launched by the Tech Missile Bunker) against their base, with the exception of the Psychic Dominator. The AI is able to predict where a superweapon will hit accurately.
Use the Force Shield to protect the most important buildings if necessary.
—Allied intel during Operation: Panic Cycle
- The Force Shield is first usable in the campaign in Panic Cycle.
- In Godsend and the Timekiller Challenge, the enemy's Force Shields will constantly protect the surrounding buildings of the Shield Commands, while the Shield Commands themselves are not protected.
- In Relentless, during the battle after the outpost is retaken, the player can use Force Shield once (except on Mental difficulty).
- In Combustion, the enemy will use Force Shield to protect some tech defenses. Players need to infiltrate the Shield Command to shut it down.
