An organic character can equip two arm bands or shields, one on each arm.

Arm bands[edit]

There's only one arm band in the entire game, though...

Brejik's Arm Band[edit]

Brejik's arm band, when used in conjunction with his belt, generates an effective barrier against melee attacks.

Shields[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Larrim: I know it's really none of my business, but you look like someone who might need to purchase one of those new energy shields. They're the latest thing, you know. Very high tech.

Each shield charge has a duration of 200 seconds, or until maximum damage has been taken. A shield has maximum 5 uses: each use consumes one charge, and it is automatically discarded after all available charges are consumed. Items that have charges do not stack in inventory unless they have identical uses remaining.

Used shields sell for the same price regardless of how many charges remain, so there's no reason to avoid using them: simply use all but one charge, then sell them. Contrary to their descriptions, shields do not deflect electrical damage.

  • Charges: Using this item consumes one charge. This item is automatically discarded after all available charges are consumed. Items that have charges do not stack in inventory.

Far more powerful than most forearm shields, when activated this unit absorbs some of the incoming energy to provide good protection without the need for bulky generators. The unit must still be replaced after repeated use, however.

Sith Energy Shield[edit]

  • Duration: 200 seconds, or max damage taken
  • Charges: Using this item consumes one charge. This item is automatically discarded after all available charges are consumed. Items that have charges do not stack in inventory.

The Sith have made many improvements to personal forearm shielding, much to the dismay of the Jedi. Though efficient, the unit must be replaced often as it burns out when repeatedly activated.

Echani Shield[edit]

  • Deflection: Energy, Sonic, Electrical 50pts total
  • Duration: 200 seconds, or max damage taken
  • Charges: Using this item consumes one charge. This item is automatically discarded after all available charges are consumed. Items that have charges do not stack in inventory.

The Echani put much effort into developing a forearm shield that, once activated, would allow a mercenary to close on a blaster-wielding enemy relatively unscathed. This unit is discarded once its energy cells are depleted.

Arkanian Energy Shield[edit]

  • Duration: 200 seconds, or max damage taken
  • Charges: Using this item consumes one charge. This item is automatically discarded after all available charges are consumed. Items that have charges do not stack in inventory.

Even 2000 years after the designs were pioneered, Arkanian technology remains desirable. When equipped and activated, this forearm shield protects against a variety of combat conditions, though it must be replaced often due to burnout.

  • Duration: 200 seconds, or max damage taken
  • Charges: Using this item consumes one charge. This item is automatically discarded after all available charges are consumed. Items that have charges do not stack in inventory.

Though manufactured by the Verpine, these forearm shields are based on highly modified Arkanian designs. They are must-have items for the professional soldier, though they have to be replaced when the maximum number of activations are expended.

Mandalorian Melee Shield[edit]

  • Charges: Using this item consumes one charge. This item is automatically discarded after all available charges are consumed. Items that have charges do not stack in inventory.

Mandalorians don't fear melee combat, but anything that absorbs physical damage brings them a step closer to victory, and these forearm shields are a favorite. The units are discarded once their maximum activations have been expended.

An improvement by the Mandalorians on their basic forearm shield, this variant proved decisive in several battles with the Republic. The units are discarded once their maximum number of activations have been expended.
