Note: Wait! Stop! Before you copy this actor's definition into your mod, remember the following things:
  1. You do not need to copy that actor, since it is already defined.
  2. In fact, it's not just useless, it's actually harmful as it can cause problems.
  3. If you want to modify it, or use a modified version, using inheritance is the way to go.
  4. The actor definitions here are put on the wiki for reference purpose only. Learn from them, don't copy them.
  5. There is only one exception: if what you want is changing Ammo capacity, you need to create a new type from Ammo.

The Falcon Shield is similar to Heretic's Enchanted Shield. It is emblazoned with a displayed argent falcon on a sable field, and surrounded by a brass lining.

It increases a Hexen player class's Armor Class by a certain amount:

  • +5 for Parias the Cleric
  • +4 for Baratus the Fighter
  • +3 for Daedolon the Mage

In Hexen, it is designed to be used with the Amulet of Warding, Mesh Armor and Platinum Helm, but if imported in another game only one piece of Hexen Armor can be used at a time.

In Hexen.wad, the sprite is actually named ARM2A0 and is renamed at load-time by ZDoom.
