This part of The Ascent guide explains how to use shields to destroy enemies.
Shield-wielding enemies will come after the first few stages of The Ascent. Because shields absorb bullets from weapons, fighting them demands more commitment than fighting ordinary opponents.
You must know how to overcome opponents with shields, and this page of the guide will explain how to defeat the shielded enemies.
How to defeat shielded enemies
Shooting a regular weapon at the shield will not produce any noteworthy outcomes. Encircling the enemy and attacking from behind is the most basic solution to this dilemma.

Dodges are the simplest method to accomplish this. If this isn’t possible in a specific situation, or if there are more enemies with shields, upgrades (augmentation) or tactical grenades can be used.
The explosion of an upgrade or grenade will not be halted by the shield in this instance, therefore you don’t need to penetrate behind the enemy’s back.
Furthermore, if an enemy with a shield is near an explosive device, you can utilise the explosive thing to kill them. Simply ensure that your opponent is within the blast radius.
