Sensor Shield

Sensor Shield, originally known as Silent Run, protects the user from any sort of sensing devices, including:

MAX units cannot use Sensor Shield.

Sensor Shield will also prevent damage from the low level Pain Fields that exist in all base spawn rooms. It does not protect against an installed Pain Module though.

For infiltrators, the Sensor Shield will remain on indefinitely inside a pain field as long you stay in one position. The Sensor Shield will eventually run out of Stamina for infantry.

The Sensor Shield will also eliminate the sound of your footsteps, making it impossible for an enemy to hear you.

Sensor Shield will not protect you if you take damage. It will also not protect you if you are within the SOI of a base with Interlink benefits and you try to use an item (weapons, REKs, etc.).
