Crysis Wiki

The Shield is a piece of equipment that can be found in several Game Modes in Crysis 3 . It can be used to protect players from any damage directly from the front, or it can be used as a melee weapon.


Shields can be picked up off the ground on Hunter Mode , or they can be ripped off of the objective on Spears and Crash Site . The shield in Hunter Mode has a transparent visor to protect the head, while the shields in Spears and Crash Site do not. While using the shield, normal weapons cannot be used. Press the melee button to do a regular melee attack, or press the fire weapon button to throw the shield at the enemy. Throwing the shield is more for long range attacks, but it will leave the player vulnerable for a second as they get their weapon back up.
