Abilities Tips
Dome of Protection

If an enemy squad is firing at you and your team, throw the dome down. It will block their bullets allowing you and your squad to escape.
Combining the dome with Defensive Bombardment can be very helpful.Example: If you have a downed teammate and are being rushed, throw down your ultimate and then your dome right behind the center of the explosion, so the enemy has to walk through it to get to you.
The dome shield is not a complete bubble and depending on the terrain it can have its weak spots.
No shots can go through the dome, but you can still be damaged by enemies while inside it.
Remember that the dome is not a safe space, but a breathing room from which you can revive teammates, reload and recharge your health and shields.
Dome shield dancing can be really useful if done right. Go in and out of the dome shield while being shot to reduce the damage you take, while also making enemies waste their ammo. While they reload, shoot.
Due to the size and glow, it easily gives your position away; expect enemy to wait out the timer to snipe your team when the dome is down.
It’s very common for enemies to throw a grenade at the dome shield and force you out of it. Be aware of that, but be careful with your positioning so you know how to deal with this situation.
Gun Shield

The shield can sometimes make it easier to spot Gibraltar while he is hiding, so it may be worth disabling temporarily if you’re pretty sure you’re otherwise hidden.
Crouching while using your gun shield makes you a hard target to do damage to from the front.
Activating the gun shield during a sniper fight often grants you the upper hand. Thus, Gibraltar is one the best Legends to use snipers.
Defensive BombardmentThis ability also damages you so use it with caution.
This ability is nice for support; if enemies are hiding, it can drive them out of cover and into an easier line of fire. It can also be used as an attack or a defensive ability.
You can call it inside your shield to temporize and give you few seconds of rest, as enemies will be unable to come inside. Use this time to revive, heal, reload, or run away.
Use this ability to finish off enemies you downed from a distance.
Wattson’s Interception Pylon can negate a sizable area of the bombardment. Try to use the ability after it’s been destroyed.

Voice Lines



Gibraltar is a gentle giant with a wild side. The son of two S.A.R.A.S. (Search and Rescue Association of Solace) volunteers, he has always been skilled at getting others out of dangerous situations that are common in the Outlands. However, he only began to understand the value of protecting others when he and his boyfriend Nikolas stole his father’s motorcycle, took it on a joyride, and got trapped by a deadly mudslide. His parents saved them, and his father lost an arm in the process. Gibraltar has never forgotten that sacrifice and has devoted his life to helping those in need.
