One thing that I have always wanted, in all the BL series, is a shield optimized for reducing melee damage.
In all the games, melee is often the most damaging attack. Pyscho buzz axes, the kick attacks , rush and leap attacks, all do a significant amount of damage (usually much greater than the same enemies guns), and there is no way to mitigate that damage.
One shield, I’ll nominate Anshin to build it, that provides an enhanced resistance to melee damage would be a nice addition. Would be a nice add if it reduced vehicle impact damage also, since I’ve always found that to be way overpowered.
Just an option for us, it might even be weak to gun damage. Just something that keeps a psycho from one hitting me into oblivion while gun damage isn’t even tickling my shield.
