The Shield Saw

The Shield Saw is a weapon in Doom: The Dark Ages. It is a shield with a chained edge that rotates around its circumference. When used, it can absorb enemy projectiles, albeit at a cost of the Doom Slayer's speed. It can also be thrown as a projectile, at which point it returns to the Slayer, damaging any enemies it hits on the way back.[1]

The shield can be used in conjunction with one-handed weapons.[1]

Functions: throw, block, bash, parry, charge.


300, specifically Leonidas's use of his spear and shield, was the inspiration for the Shield Saw.[1]
