The Portable Shield Generator (abbreviated PSG) generates a shield impenetrable to blaster fire and projectiles from both sides. It is a vital element in infantry combat, providing cover on open terrain and other places where there is not ample cover from the environment.
- Impenetrable from both sides, except by poison or sonic grenades. This item is also extremely useful when placed over a heavy weapon such as an eweb or Mk II blaster cannon, as they can fire through the shield if their barrels are protruding through it.
- Used by Imperial Heavy Weapons Specialists and Rebel Heavy Weapons Specialists
- Players can pick their own (and only their own) shields up for redeployment by hitting the Pickup Kit key (default G).
