The Shield is a Minecraft defense tool that has replaced blocking with swords as of the 1.9 update. Only one type of shield currently exists. However, it is possible to customize a shield using a banner. Banner patterns are not proportionate to the shield, however, so the design will display on the shield differently than on the banner. It is currently only available in the Java Edition.
Shields are commonly placed in the off-hand slot. Once equipped, a player can right-click to raise the shield and block incoming attacks from enemy mobs or players. Attacks coming from within a 180° radius in front of a player will be entirely negated, with an exception being redstone-activated TNT. It is possible to deflect arrows with a shield, directing them back at the enemy who fired said arrow, making it both a defensive and offensive tool in these situations. A player's movement speed is decreased while the shield is raised. When a shield is being used and is attacked by an axe, there is a 25% chance that the shield will be deactivated for five seconds (as seen by a white overlay, similar to Ender Pearls and Chorus Fruit), plus 5% for every level of efficiency on the axe, plus 75% if the axe wielder is sprinting.
