A '''kinetic barrier''' is a type of defensive [[shield]] used in ''[[Mass Effect]]''.
  
A kinetic barrier uses [[mass effect technology]] to create a force field that repels or deflects objects that enter the field and dangerous speeds. Basic barriers simply "push back" against the projectile, slowing it to a harmless speed or pushing it away. Advanced "cyclonic" barriers apply lateral force to projectiles, deflecting them so they miss the target.

A kinetic barrier uses [[mass effect technology]] to create a force field that repels or deflects objects that enter the field at dangerous speeds. Basic barriers simply "push back" against the projectile, slowing it to a harmless speed or (if strong enough) stopping it entirely. Advanced "cyclonic" barriers apply lateral force to projectiles, deflecting them so they miss the target.
  
 
Barrier technology is only effective against physical projectiles; barriers provide virtually no protection against [[directed-energy weapon]]s.
