I'm just wondering what people think about the boomshield.

Does anyone ever use this in a multiplayer game? Have you seen anyone using this?

Is it a cheap tactic to use the boomshield? Would you get pissed off if someone killed you while carrying a boomshield?

I find it is easy to kill someone carrying a boomshield if you are within melee range or happen to land a grenade behind the carrier.

I use it in horde. Just so I can lure people out and smash them with the Gorgon. But if I die from it, it's usually a melee strike. That is the weekness of it

Boomshields are a most def for horde.

Even tho i would never use one in multiplayer jus cuz how slowed down u are, i can't hate when someone else is usin one.

I jus think its BS that the flame thrower can't get thru it though, pretty much only a chainsaw is always a def kill for a person holdin a shield.

It does slow you down but you can roadie run with it...its slowed down but you can still get away from stuff "nades ect." and you can alway just hit right or left on your d pad instantly dropping the shield, you can time that with a roll and be fine.

The shield is only as good as what pistol your holding...and all pistols are pretty lethal if you have good aim, personally i like the gorgon, the revolver is great but usually only for holding people back.

Boomshields are good in horde to block doors and things but other than that I never use them.

Boomshields are not very effective because there way out of the way and they just slow you down. However, I think the meatshields are very effective. Many times I've ran up on 2 people (not meaning to) and happen to down one, pick him up as a meatshield and kill his partner who was rushing to pick him up.

Very effective in Horde. If i run across one and am taking fire in MP i'll pick it up, but i never go out of my way to go find one.
It's not too hard to kill someone who is using the boom shield. Just shoot them in the feet lol.

The Boomshield is great to use in horde, escipally with the pistol that shoots in bursts. I'll also use the shield when it's sudden death. I love that they added it though, a cover that you can pick up and put it in the ground anytime is awesome.
