The Hazard Shield is a suit upgrade that allows Samus Aran to walk on damage-inducing surfaces or through toxic areas (such as fuel gel areas). It is a specific upgrade to Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. This upgrade, however, does not decrease the damage from enemy attacks. The upgrade is visually displayed by larger shoulder armor with crackling power. When trans-versing dangerous substances, the suit will glow orange/red (this includes when in Morph Ball mode).
