Shields are a mechanic in Paladins that allows Champions to absorb a limited amount of damage from enemy champions while allowing allies to shoot through them. Shields are generally blue colored and semi transparent and won't prevent players from walking or seeing through them. There are two types of shields: deployable shields and personal shields. Deployable shields are those that must be placed and take a space in the world, while personal shields are those that instead act as a buff that protects the champion's health.

There are some cards and the item Wrecker that allow champions to weaken or destroy enemy shields faster while other ones can enhance their effect.
