Traps under shields

Post#1 » Wed Jan 18, 2017 3:55 am

I have a corner style base with a couple traps on the top corner. Problem is some of those traps are covered by one of my shields. Do my shields protect enemy troops from being hit when the traps are tripped?

No, but shields also does not protect traps to get destroyed by shock trooper / Vanguard.

It surprised me, but Shock trooper will destroy trap even if its covered by shield. He shots it down like there was no shield..

Thanks for the info! I have my droideka nearby with the hope it will deal with those vanguards ;)

Vanguards and Troopers can shoot through shields.. This is the description off the game for them:

Vanguards field powerful PLEX rocket launchers, designed to bypass shields and destroy from a distance. These path-clearing troops are specially trained to seek out and destroy traps.

That's one of the big pluses for me!
