"Shields Up! :D" not working?

The description for ISIC’s level 10 augment “Shields Up! :D” says that it raises his energy aegis in front of him when Omega Strike is activated. I could see no visual indication that this was the case. In fact, it didn’t seem to be any different to a standard Omega Strike. Anyone else have this problem?

The shield is actually up, it just doesn’t show it, if you look on the shields meter, it will decrease when taking damage from the front. Although it doesn’t look like it, it works. I thought the same thing
