I've actually killed myself while in an AEGIS from shooting at another AEGIS. Pretty funny stuff. Also Davynelord the AEGIS doesn't deplete faster but actually just has health if that makes sense. If you deal enough damage to an AEGIS you can shut it down.
Yeah they richochet....but I'm almost certain that shooting the shield depletes it faster...otherwise what would the durability stat be for if it's not able to be depleted faster than the 16 - 22 seconds it's supposed to last?
Correct on both accounts. It's really not a shield ... the bubble you see is an AR (augmented reality) visual representation of a hemispheric protection system. Which has been demonstrated albeit at a much larger scale: http://defense-update.com/products/t/trophy.htm
