The M.D.S.M. or Mek Deployable Shield Module is an item in Extinction.

Usage[edit | edit source]

By pressing C, Xbox: Right Stick, PS4: Right Stick, a semi-espherical dome will be formed around the Mek. It can be deactivated by pressing those controls again or exiting the shield.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This is the only module to provide passive Armor, akin to Saddles, making it extremely useful in direct confrontations and PvP battles.
  • The shield only protects the Mek from projectiles, it has no use as a creature barrier of any kind.
  • The Mek's heat slowly increases while the shield is active, and the shield will automatically deactivate if the Mek overheats.
  • When the shield deactivates, all the enemies that were under the shield get increased damage taken debuff on them.
