The Afflicted


There’s no shortage of weapons or ways to die on the New Frontier. Luckily, Votanis shield technology has kept pace with most of them. Equip shields with a range of unique traits – from overall capacity and recharge rate to elemental resistances – and take the upper hand no matter who (or what) you face.


Aside from your personal shield, Spikes and Stims are your best friends on the battlefield. Spikes are deployable devices that provide life-saving benefits like shield regeneration, ammunition, and amplified damage to ark hunters in their vicinity. Going it alone? Stock up on Stims: injections that can heal grievous injuries or help you turn the tide with instant shield, melee damage, or EGO ability boosts.
