The shield is a strong, tall wooden board held by the player in their left hand. By default the shield is held to the side, however the player can hold it in front of themselves to protect from incoming attacks. The Stygimoloch‘s headbutt is a deadly and dangerous hazard, and the shield not only grants immunity to the headbutt, but kills the Stygimoloch upon impact. This makes the shield a great weapon for harvesting meat or taming dinosaurs. Because the shield is so easy to craft it’s an indispensable item for beginning players. It is also great for players who do not want to use the spear or bow, as they are harder to aim.
