Ballistic Shield
Ballistic Shield
is a Security skill in Tom Clancy's The Division.

Base: Equips a portable Ballistic Shield that absorbs damage. The user can only use their sidearm while the shield is active.

Mod 1: Reactive TargetingEdit

Equips a stronger and lighter shield that pulses hostiles who shoot at it.

Mod 2: Assault ShieldEdit

Equips a shield that grants the user's sidearm increased damage, knockback, increased accuracy, and faster reload speed.

Mod 3: Kinetic BreakerEdit

Grants the user a small portion of incoming damage as healing.

Master: Self-Healing ArmorEdit

The shield can regain health after receiving no damage for a short amount of time.

Max Cap for all Ballistic ShieldsEdit

Life Points: 500,000 HP

Cooldown: 15 seconds


  • When good cover is sparse, deploying the Ballstic shield can save you from being crippled by a lethal sniper shot or heavy automatic fire.
  • The shield offers protection from bullets at the cost of both movement speed and firepower which means NPCs as well as enemy players can flank the user easily.
  • Its highly recommended to have a good sidearm or unlock the master mod in order to use the Ballstic shield to its full potential.
  • Using the Ballistic Shield increases threat to the user, making enemies focusing their attention on the user. This is a viable build for tanks to draw fire for other team members.
  • Players can still use other skills while the Ballistic Shield is active.
  • Using a Backpack with the Resourceful talent (Healing applied to you is applied to skills) can help keep your skill active for longer.
  • If the shield is about to break, you can hide the shield from enemies and have it regain its health. 


  • The Frontline Gearset can allow you to use a Submachine Gun with the shield, at the cost of no Critical Hit Chance.
  • Before Update 1.4, the Ballistic Shield had bugs causing users to not be able to fire their weapon, or still take damage to their health when the shield is out.
