The Thunder Shield is a shield weapon which has a lower damage reduction on block than most other shields and deals electric DPS when held up or in a radius around the player after a successful parry. Reusing the shield while it's charged will discharge the energy, dealing shock damage and stunning nearby enemies. This item is exclusive to the Rise of the Giant DLC.
