Where does the water come from? I don't think you can carry enough, considering that flamethrowers typically produce temperatures over 800 degrees in a matter of seconds, which would heat the shield till it burned the user's hands and they dropped the shield, even if the flames didn't touch. No, what I'd suggest is that there be some sort of discreet tripod which is always deployed but doesn't hinder the user (legs go to either side and in front). Then it could be deployed to block a hallway or used even if something like this happened.

I'm joking. Maybe the shield gun could be OT? That way it couldn't burn up?

Of course things dying by fire is a brikwarsy method too.

The Timesplitters games have had a few guns with optional energy shields that extended outward from the gun.

A small explosive like a grenade would deal with the shields carrier. Not because his shield wouldn't handle the blast, but because it would impact against its bearer so bad it could kill him. But fuck that, this is Brikwars. Give him power armor or something and an indestructible shield and there you have it!

You could probably do a Gears-of-War style deal, where the shield is deployed using mounted weapon rules and provides a mobile bit of cover(2/3 is probably good), could be useful for antitank teams or snipers.

EDIT: I also remember some rules somewhere for an oil can that created a 3x4 wall of bricks. I'm sure you can build that out of 1x2s and have a firing port in it.

Yeah, go with this.
