The tower shield is a type of shield that appears in dNetHack, SpliceHack, and Hack'EM. It provides AC 3 when worn.

In dNetHack the tower shield provides 4AC (and 0 DR, like all shields), and grants MC1.


The tower shield provides the most AC of any shield, but unfortunately it also weighs the most. It also inhibits spellcasting like other metallic shields.
