Accessories provide no bonuses, these stats only apply to the other parts.

More Info

Shields are made out of 4 main visible parts.

Accessory

Shield Accessory Part

Battery

Shield Battery Part

Body

Shield Body Part

Capacitor

Shield Capacitor Part

Internally the Accessory and Body were swapped at some point, leading to the misleading names.

Each manufacturer has one non-unique part for each slot. As luck would have it, the bonuses these parts provide have enough of a pattern that they can be summarised in the above table. No non-unique Accessories provide bonuses, and within each manufacturer the non-unique Batteries, Bodies, and Capacitors all share the exact same bonuses.

Materials

The material parts have no model, instead defining the actual textures applied on top of all the other models.

There are 36 non-unique materials, one for each rarity-manufacturer combination. Most of these follow the same pattern.

Inventory Balances

The Inventory Balance defines what parts a certain item can have. Balances themselves do not affect stats, but are they very important for the actual generation of items.

Shield Definitions

Like the name might suggest, the definition essentially defines all the unique properties of each shield type. These are what create all the different special effects. There is one definition per shield type.

Definitions are very important if you’re trying to calculate exact stats, but otherwise can be mostly ignored.

Expand

To start with, they define the base values for all stats stored on the grenade. Unlike with weapons, this is simply done using regular pre-add bonuses, so see the full parts reference for details.

They also define all grade bonuses, and how exactly they get converted into standard bonuses. Grade bonuses have a few special uses on shields.

Shield special is perhaps the best use of the grade system. A single generic special slot can have different effects based on the shield type, so the non unique parts can provide bonuses to any of them. There are actually 4 special slots, so far this page has simplified them all into one. Most parts (including all non-uniques) boost Special 01 and 02 equally, and don’t touch 03 and 04, though again, see the full parts reference for exceptions.

Elemental immunities are another interesting use of grades. The immunity is defined entirely by the base value of the grade bonus, and parts simply activate the slot, without adding any grades. Because of this, a bonus with value 0 actually still has an effect.

A few shields have some extra unique grade slots, which only get activated by their definitions, but nothing else, and never have any grades added. These are essentially just extra constant bonuses, which go through the grade system as an extra step.
