A shield is an item that is used in conjunction with the Use Shield general skill. Shields absorb damage caused by melee weapons and bows/crossbows (providing they aren't using special calls), but if hit with a firearm the user can either choose for the shield to absorb the damage, causing the shield to be damaged and need to be repaired by a mechanic with the Repair/Build Item skill, or allow the projectile to pass through, causing normal damage to the player.
