A Forcefield

Forcefield is a Green unit and part of the base set. It's a cheap unit that consumes a Drone to increase Blockerdefense value.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Forcefield is the basic drone-for-defense unit (similar to Plexo Cell). It allows you to convert your Drones into better defense. Forcefields are often your only recourse when trying to keep a high absorbing Blockerdefender alive, but spamming Forcefields puts pressure on your economy. If you are unable to sustain an equal or greater amount of pressure on your opponent, your worsened economy will make it difficult to maintain a suitable Blockerdefense.

Note that buying a Conduit in the early game in order to pile up some Green resourcegreen is required to build Forcefield (and hopefully save your late game Blockerdefense).

Remember, drones are just another resource in meeting the win condition of destroying all the enemies units. If a Forcefield keeps a Doomed Wall or Defense Grid alive, it can be well worth the economic loss!

The cheap Goldgold cost of Forcefield during the mid-game usually means that you can buy extra Attackattackers as opposed to buying an expensive Blockerblocker. This can help maintain pressure on your opponent!

If you think you will need to use Forcefields to help with your Blockerdefense, be careful about units reducing your base Drone count (Vivid Drone, Trinity Drone), as they might leave you with no Drone to sacrifice.
