The ZinTek Force Shield acts the same as the Riot Shield in Saints Row: The Third. The Zin are the only ones to use the ZinTek Force Shield, and drop it upon death. The shield will block super-takedowns from occuring. The Inflato-Ray will bypass the shield, and it can be disintegrated with the Disintegrator. Additionally, using telekinesis on a Zin with the shield will take the shield, not the Zin.
