Why did they take the shield out of CS:S, I know it never had it but CS:S is a remake of Counter-Strike 1.6 using the Source engine. So it puzzels me why they didn't add the shield to CS:S. Does any one here miss it at all? Hopefully they'll add it in a future patch or atleased some thing to spice up gameplay and strategy. They also should have a filter option that shows if the server is using DWP and what ones aren't.

    They did have it, but took it out due to the majority vote from the community.

    The shield was a terrible idea in the first place. Most 1.6 servers have the shield dissabled anyway.

    The shield is fun for the first week or two after you get the game, but it gets old after a while.

    I used to love the shield.They should make it for source if knew that valve had a votes to make stuff.dam i would vote against this gay dymaic weapon pricing.As far as the shield ingame it really no problem mostly all severs don't allow awps and autosnipers i really do believe weapons should be left ingame.Non of this resisit crap

    I dunno i think itd be cool to have a shield in css, i mean but not with the same characteristics as 1.6 did, like after a certain amount of damage taken to the gun it would break or like it would lose a layer of metal and bullets could go thru and hurt you....i dunno something along those lines.

    Realistically I don't think a shield would be so effective against assault rifle rounds anyways.

    Yea , I wish they add it back and when was the vote to remove it because thats not fair, because not every one goes to their site. I aggree with you saying that restrictions is complete bull shit, I can't stand servers that disable awps and autos. I think they should make it more realistic too like you guys said only rifles can shot through it.

    I dont understand why everyone hated the shield in cs1.6, i think it brought a lil bit of tactical gameplay that cs desperatley needs.I agree that they should do something with the damage to it but still should bring it back.

    Riot shields are made to stop bats and blunt objects and to hold people back. They are almost useless when it comes to fire arms. But ballistic shields are nearly impervius to rounds up to about .50 bmg.

    I dont really.

    It just prolongs the inevitable, plus I think it gives "too much" to CT's.

    If there was a shield then there should be something like that for the T's also, otherwise it would become very unbalanced.

    CS:S is NOT a remake of 1.6, btw. It's totally a different game. If it would've been a remake, it'd have exactly same things and maps.

    Weell, if it'd be a remake it would include everything that 1.6 had.

    Nevermind, anyways. But I don't really like the shield, I just think it's good that it ain't in Source.

    The shield is stupid. Some noob can just go around blocking all your bullets with a sheild that in real life can barely block 9mm rounds...

    I really agree, it's just so crappy. It's pretty much like that you could be only killed from behind or with a grenade. h4x

    Yea, but if it were in source it can use new physics like bounce around from gun fire making a shot be able to hit you from in front. There is tons of things they can do to make it weaker.

    I really hated the shield, its just annoying.

    @ shady197, why would you have rpgs in a game with no vehicles?
    bounce around with gunfire? that sounds like an awful idea. :D

    Yea let's have the shield, and while we're at it why not put some rpg's and some assault dogs. Why not stick a nuclear bomb in there. Heck how about we get airstrikes to bomb parts of the map. And while we still have some space why not just throw in a ridable horse which you have to take care off and feed it and brush it's hair. Just, no.

    The nuclear bomb has been put in CS before I remember it in a server it was an AMX mod x plugin, but for real the shield should be re-added

    Even better is running around with a shield and a knife. Pretty gay for knife fights but those Terrorists whine about anything now don't they?
