Kinetic Barrier is a support power for Epsilon Headquarters, available once their Pandora Hub is upgraded with the Geneplug add-on. It protects friendly infantry in its area-of-effect with a powerful kinetic barrier that halves the damage they receive for a period of time.
The AI will use Kinetic Barrier to target the largest friendly infantry blob (including blobs owned by other players in the same team as AI) present. Ignores cloaked targets.
The Kinetic Barrier is first usable in the campaign in Godsend. In this mission as well as in Machinehead and Blood Rage, Kinetic Barrier can be activated without the need of a Geneplug, as the player doesn't have access to bases.
