Developed using the cybernetic implants we removed from the skull of the Ethereal alien species, this device should allow for a greater resistance to offensive psi attacks.

Notes

  • 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 a soldier's own psi abilities as for defence against enemy psi abilities.
