|“||When you pick it up, the Defender Sphere hovers above your head. It fires on any enemy who dares to attacks you. The Defender also lowers by 50%, the damage you take from enemy attacks. Handy, huh?||”|
—Ground Zero Manual
The only sphere item found in both single-player and multiplayer, the Defender Sphere aptly protects its bearer by not only firing upon its master's attackers, but also reducing damage taken by 50 percent.
The item is useful any time you find yourself in a tight spot. Its damage reduction is its most useful property, and it works even better when you have a good amount of armor.
