Protect your face while caving in someone else's.

DICE have used a presentation at this year’s GDC to reveal that Battlefield 4 players will soon be able to shield-bash people right in their ugly faces once the upcoming Dragon’s Teeth DLC is released.
The ballistic shields will be two-handed, meaning you won’t be able to fire one and use a gun, but you will have a sweet piece of moveable cover and one that you can use to bash people up to a metre away.
“There was a lot of resistance at first,” said senior animator Ryan Duffin, “but the more we assessed it, the more we realized it was a better feature. It turns out that stopping bullets in a first-person shooter is a ton of fun. We’re confident that it will create a new dynamic for the game.”
