– Block stamina (progress bar over the crosshair) is spent gradually
each second you block. Full block stamina allows you to take any

you and how many are killed as a result.
. Each time you spend block stamina, a small portion of equipment
charge (progress bar over the equipment icon on the HUD) is also
spent. Full block spends half of the charge. If you haven’t blocked
incoming damage – you won’t spend any equipment charge.

but you’ll also have less block stamina. If you don’t have any
equipment charge left, you’ll only have stamina to block a single
