Shield Drone Mech Arm is an arm part mech component that can be crafted using salvaged materials found in space encounters. The crafting recipe has a chance to be learned after finding a High-Tech Mech Blueprint.

This arm component can be equipped on either or both mech arm slots.

Once learned it can be assembled using a Mech Part Crafting Table and equipped using a Mech Assembly Station.

While equipped, the player can use the Shield Drone Mech Arm, while piloting their mech, to deploy a large drone that follows the mech, remains deployed for up to 2 minutes, and has 8000 health. Only one shield drone can be deployed at a time; attempting to deploy a second drone will do nothing. The drone deals extremely strong knockback, but no damage, to enemies that collide with it. It also absorbs any weapons fire that hits it, until it is destroyed. While the player cannot directly position the drone with respect to the mech, it does always trail the mech's direction of travel, so strategic piloting skills are needed to make full use of it.
