[Top 3] The Division 2 Best Shield Builds

Division 2 shield builds
The best shield builds for The Division 2.

One of the best skills to use when you're dealing with enemies up close is the shield.

The shield provides the player adequate protection from enemies that are running up at you, and protects from some gun fire. 

The shield is great to use if you find yourself in a spot with little to no cover, allowing you to protect yourself until you find a safe area. 

With the shield, it is important to have a good sidearm like the X-45 Tactical or the exotic pistol, Liberty. 

We're going to go over three shield builds that are likely to help you in The Division 2.
