The Riot Shield is a protective primary weapon that can be used both offensively and defensively. It is unlocked for use in Multiplayer and Spec Ops at Level 22. This shield protects the head and torso while standing, or protects the entire body while crouched. Use the melee button to shield bash enemy combatants for a two-hit kill.
Switch to another weapon to place the Riot Shield on your back, protecting the rear from all firearm shots. Explosives and incendiary damage is the best way to get around a Riot Shield.
This primary weapon has no attachments, but stickers and camouflage can be unlocked.
