Abilities/Stats +30 Will
  • Gives additional 30% protection from psi attacks. Gives additional 30% chance to psi attacks.
  • Having an Assault with a Mind Shield equipped can allow them to approach an Ethereal and Rapid Fire them. Should they miss, (which is unlikely) there is now a negligible chance that they will be mind controlled and used against you.
  • While described as a Mind "Shield", the Will bonus is generic and is equally useful for boosting offensive Psi abilities.
  • Unlike the Psi Armor, which can only be equipped by soldiers that have already tested positive for Psi ability, any soldier can equip Mind Shields.
