I really wish Gearbox would remember DD exists when adding new shields. I like to run DD with the caffeine shield since DD doubles its effect and it’s very easy to keep barrier active permanently and keep your shields full with CCC.
So since the new Super Soldier shield works somewhat similarly I thought it might not be too much of a stretch that it would also have its effects doubled by DD. Have not tested extensively but as far as I can tell from trying it it sadly does not. I feel like this is a massive lost opportunity to give DD a stronger niche but alas I think Gearbox has just given up on the skill.
Has anybody tested any of the other new shields with DD? Even if it works I don’t see it accomplishing much with the Re-Volter, and I don’t have an Infernal Wish yet to test that, though my hopes are very low that it would work. Still if anyone has an Infernal Wish and wouldn’t mind testing I’d be interested in the results.
