Shield refraction, everybody. Thanks to community feedback, Iron Man can now bounce his Unibeam off Captain America’s shield in Marvel’s Avengers, amplifying the beam’s damage. As it should be.
It’s a classic Marvel Comics combo move, one you’d think would be a no-brainer for inclusion in a cooperative multiplayer-focused game. It’s ok; Developer Crystal Dynamics got there eventually. It just took them until now.
ICYMI: Thanks to community feedback, Captain America can now use his shield to reflect beams and lasers such as Iron Man's Unibeam. Doing so will also grant a damage buff. Happy reflecting! pic.twitter.com/AFUNI8CcF4

Hopefully this addition leads to more combo movies, like Black Widow ricocheting bullets off Iron Man’s head, or Hulk rolling Iron Man into a small sphere and throwing him like a cannonball. Anything that involves potentially hurting Stark, really.
