With the advent of a greater understanding and knowledge of Shield technology, comes the new need to grade the techology. UNSC, USR, Machina, Palinsfier, Vorenus, Brute, Forerunner and Necros technology are all graded on the chart.
The Grade 1 is the near universal energy shield used by infantry men of the majority of the factions. It is used by the UNSC Marine Corps, in the M4A2 Body Armour, M5A1 Body Armour, the M5A2 Body Armour and the M6B Body Armour, The Sangheili enlisted ranks, Vorenus Mobile Infantry, Brute Minors and most medium Machina frames. This also applies to Point Defence Gauntlets. This formerly applied to the MJOLNIR Mk. V as well.
Grade 2 is just s a more heavy duty and robust shield generator, sporting over all more potent abilities. It is found on the M7 Body Armour, Semi Powered Infiltration Armour Mark III, the M84B Dire Wolf All Terrain Armoured Assault Suit and following suits and is used by the Sangheili NCO ranks, Vorenus Special Operations, light weight Machina frames and Brute Captains. This formerly applied to the MJOLNIR Mk. VI
The Grade three is rare and is only used on the shielding of the MJOLNIR Mk. VII, Sangheili Junior Officers, Vorenus Special Operatives, Heavy-duty Machina Frames and Brute Chieftains.
Grade four is one of the rarest shielding and is only found on UNSC Point Defence Shielding, Sangheili Marshals and Councilors and a few Machina GEARS.
