The Riot Shield is one of the 15 player weapons in Red Faction.

Riot Shield (UBS-4 Ultor Riot Body Shield)


The UBS-4 Riot Shield is a ballistic shield that's capable of deflecting or stopping most incoming rounds from pistols and rifles for a limited time. Since you are unable to fire back with one of your weapons while equipped with the Riot Shield, it's really only useful for getting from point A to point B without getting hurt. However, if you find yourself right next to an enemy with the shield, you should feel free to smash his head in with the thing, but that's pretty weak and generally ineffective; the smash function is there so that you can bump someone the hell out of your way if you're in a hurry to ditch the action in favor of some recuperation. Not a single person throughout the game will use the Riot Shield against you.
