no problem! you can always find useful videos on reddit halo.
It would be nice if it had an effect on vehicle shields like from saving you from laser damage.
i think that's what Wheelman is for
I have always worked on speed and on shields I have a 90% of winning in a fight
it's good if you get attack with standard weapons

Makes a good difference in warzone mythic battles buying u time in a fire fight
The overshield in my opinion is way to high up in the req levels compared to its usefulness. It only increases your shields by the tiniest fraction just so you can BARELY survive what people without the shields can't. It also doesn't really matter because there are either people with overpowered smgs or other close range power weapons or more long range power weapons or vehicles which people can just run you over with.
I'm not really sure
Personally, I've never noticed a difference. I generally prefer increased strength or the tactical crate or whatever it's called (the one that increases ammo capacity.
I know it allows you to survive a standard sniper round, but what else can you survive? Extra BR burst? Does it considerably reduce the rockets kill range? etc

EDIT: We've established it gives about 20% extra shields, and this can stack with weapon buffs. Jorges chaingun with over shields has been estimated at 1200% shields!
Now I honestly want to do some math to support this XD I'll get on it
(I mean, I know I proposed that. But I now want to make sure I'm not an idiot.)

Nornfangs damage is high enough that UG will not save you, not by itself.
It depends on your skill
I shot some one with my whiplash who had a Jorges chain and they didn't die, upgraded shields.
i have no idea rarely use Armour mods
