Thing type 404, Armageddon Shield Monitor, is a monitor that gives the player the Armageddon Shield upon its destruction. When the player presses the Spin button in mid-jump, the Armageddon Shield explodes, hurting all nearby enemies, including Match opponents, within a radius of 1536 fracunits. The shield will also automatically explode if the player gets damaged, or if the player pops another Armageddon Shield Monitor with the shield on.

Checking the Ambush flag turns this monitor into a Weak Random Monitor. This is not recommended however, because WRMs do not spawn Armageddon Shields. Checking the Special flag turns it into a Strong Random Monitor, out of which it may randomly respawn with a probability of 12.5%.

This Monitor type also comes in a gold variation, Thing Type 434, Armageddon Shield Monitor (Respawn), which will give the player the Armageddon Shield once popped, before respawning after about 3 seconds. SRB2 itself does not use the Armageddon Shield Monitor (Respawn), but it is still available for custom maps.
