|Energy Fields: Conversion field - Refractor field - Displacer field - Stasis field||Armour: Flak - Carapace - Powered - Artificer - Terminator|
A displacer field is a somewhat unreliable defensive device employed by Imperial agents such as Inquisitors. The device will teleport the user out of harm's way if the bearer takes a strong enough hit from a weapon[1a].
Use of the device is risky for several reasons: first, it reacts automatically, and the user cannot control either the teleportation or exactly where he or she teleports to[2b]. Furthermore, the user rematerialises moving at the same speed and in the same direction as he or she was when the field activated, which can be equally hazardous[1b].
