Blitz is a beefy attack Operator. Although he’s on the offense, his shield helps him move defensively forward. If you come across enemies as you push towards the objective, flash them with the lights attached to the shield, then quickly switch to your pistol to take them out.
Blitz’s unique ability is a specialized ballistic shield. With a press of a button, the flash bulbs mounted to the front of the shield will temporarily blind any Operator on the other end. The flash can be used 4 times per round, and has a 7 second cool down between flashes.
Other than the flash, the shield is a normal ballistic shield. It can withstand all firearm and explosive damage from the front, but it will not cover the entire body. When switching to your secondary, the shield will be placed on your back, offering protection from the rear. A handgun can be used while behind the shield; however, to aim the handgun down the sights, the shield must be placed to the side. While aiming down the weapon’s sights, only the midsection will be protected from damage.
The ballistic shield will not protect Blitz completely from the front. Crouch to protect his legs and feet when stationary. Another unique ability of Blitz is his ability to run with his shield still held out in front of him. All other Operators will place the shield to the side while running.
