The Buckler acts as a bastion for a Liberatus fleet. It guards the more fragile hulls, capable of taking immense punishment. When its shields are dealt significant damage, emergency systems kick in to regenerate them and increase its defenses.

As a titan, the Buckler is the main tank ship from the Liberatus faction. It has massive shield regeneration capabilities and is and resistant to chain, piercing and ricochet effects, and an overdrive that is almost identical to Fortify.

This Liberatus ship is able to regenerate its shields after being depleted.

Strategy[]

Apart from being tough to destroy, its weapons can also deal a lot of damage. It is advised that you stay out of its range and kite it, which should be easy as its overdrive reduces its ship speed when active.

If you are having difficulty depleting the shields of this ship, there are several ways to get around its pesky overdrive.

  • Use shield bypass to deal more damage to the ship's health before it activates its overdrive.
  • Use Blight Damage to continue damaging its shields even when the overdrive is active (will be patched).
  • Apply the Shield Disrupted effect to reduce the effectiveness of its shields.
  • Use weapons with a high damage per shot, so that you can do extra damage over the overdrive's threshold before it activates.

Extra Details[]

Fortify[]

When the Buckler takes a significant amount of shield damage, the hull and its shield briefly gains immunity to most types of damage but is almost completely unable to move during that period (ignores stasis resist).

Trivia[]

  • The Buckler's overdrive does not currently protect against Blight Damage. This may be fixed in the future.
  • The Buckler currently receives a penalty to shield defense from its overdrive in the Liberatus Nitrous, Transporter, Halt, Dynasty, Sigil and Fortress targets. This is likely not intended.
  • Right before the first Decimation for the Spectre faction, the Buckler was severely nerfed: its shield capacity was decreased by around half, greatly reducing the difficulty of draining its shields without triggering its overdrive. However, its shield regeneration rate was doubled such that the overall amount of regeneration remained the same.
