Covershield!! I would like to see this gone.
 
I really get annoyed when my boffs use this as it is just in my way.When I ma in an entryway I get stuck.It serves no purpose as you can't shoot through it or go through it.

then simply give you boffs something else ... very useless treat

The AI is pretty stupid, so of course a situational skill is a bad choice to have on them. Do as suggested and train it out of them.

It's a terrific skill to have as a player, though.

It just happened as i just comissioned this boff and didn't have any more to retrain from and no where near the first city.

I must admit a forcefield tuned to the same frequency as your weapons would be better so you could shoot through it but your enemies cant. :)

I'm afraid then you'll just have to wait until you get somewhere you can retrain it. What do you expect, do you want them to remove this skill from the game just so you can finish the mission you're on?

It is only good to shield turrets even in stf it is annoying.

Yup, just train it away.

That said, it would be nice to be able to deactivate existing cover shields. A misplaced CS can do more harm than good, locking team members inside rooms or obstructing their field of fire.

I don't play as an Engineer anymore (though my fed was one), but I've had both of the above happen to me when teamed with CS-happy engineers.
