- The perk is affected not by junk weight, but junk quantity carried.
- A base Junk Shield perk while carrying no junk will not give any damage resistance.

- The damage resistance will be additionally multiplied based on the level of the perk; level 1 will be a 1x multiplier, while level 2 & level 3 would be 2x and 3x multipliers, respectively.
