A Pulse Shield is an invention created by the Tuchanka State Union's own Center of Science & Technology. It was developed with the use of reverse-engineered Collector technology. It is a shield type which can be activated for short periods of time. The barrier that it creates absorbs all of the energy from incoming fire and stores it up to increase the armor's own effectiveness. When it stores up enough energy, a large-area pulse explosion can be triggered which can cause large amounts of damage to anything within the area.
