Doesn't seem to provide anywhere as much protection as in Gears 2. It was a good last second life-saver. Plus it provides absolutely no protection from a certain weapon which I won't mention. Pretty useless now.
I havent picked nearly as many people up as I did in 2, but I did notice you have to hit people 3 or 4 times now if you have a meatshield, and by then your probably in pieces due to that weapon you wont mention.
I really haven't been able to meat shield anyone outside of CTL, mainly because if you down someone people rush to kill said downed person to get their little 20xp. Executions are satisfying, but not nearly as common these days.
I love the meatshield. If I am ever in a firefight with more than 1 enemy and a down one, I instantly use the meatshield. I think it has more health than the average player because I have taken a full shot from an SOS and didn't lose it.
I don't know what you guys are talking about. When I have a meatshield, especially with a gorgon SMG, my foes either die or cower in terror. (unless I'm fighting by myself because then they gang up on me like a pack of hyenas)
