The barrier bot provides improved cover, not soft cover, to allies adjacent to it.


Environment any
Organization Solitary, pair, or squad (3-4)

Essentially a pair of shields on an articulated, mobile frame, the barrier bot is used to create cover and block approaching opposition. Security forces often deploy barrier bots during riots to control the terrain and funnel perpetrators. These robots can also be used as impromptu bodyguards for high-profile individuals.


With a successful Engineering check (DC 15), you can recover a defeated barrier bot’s shield and attach it to any suit of heavy armor as a level 3 armor upgrade. This uses one upgrade slot and grants the armor +1 EAC and +2 KAC. The shield has Bulk 1 and no market value.
