The Personal Forcefield is a Multi-tool Technology upgrade in No Man's Sky. Used to temporarily reduce or negate the effects of incoming laser fire. While the shield is activated, the Multi-tool cannot be used for any other purpose.
On activation, this module draws power from Exosuit Life Support systems to overload the Multi-Tool, distorting the electromagnetic field around the user and creating a powerful personal shield.
While this field offers substantial protection against incoming laser fire, the user is advised that the Multi-Tool cannot be used for other functions while powering the shield.
