shield 2 versus the world!!!
#1
Shield 2 states:
"Rank2:​May use a shield with an area of up to 4 square feet against ranged attacks but not packet attacks.                      Passive ability. "

Does this mean I can block effects that are delivered through firearms such as the heavy gunner and finesse paths? And if so, same thing with delivery through melee?

In the Rulebook, under Rules, Combat, Active Abiliites:

Quote:Active ability attacks that use weapons must hit the opponent on a legal body target, in order to count. The exception to this rule is the “sunder” effect. A sunder effect counts if it strikes any legal body target or the item that is being targeted so long as that item is a melee weapon or shield. Do not strike props or blasters.

Active ability attacks that use packets count if they hit a legal body target or any object that is currently held, worn, or attached; this includes shields and melee weapons.

So as the rules stand in this outgoing edition: Yeah, you can block active blaster and (non-sunder) melee abilities with a shield.
