Shield, Target/Buckler
AC +1

Shield, Wall/Tower
AC+2
Special: If the wielder spends an action hiding behind his shield, attackers using missile weapons suffer disadvantage.

You can already use an action to Dodge, which causes disadvantage for all attackers.

Good feedback! I didn't think about that.

How about this?

The wielder may spend a bonus action to hide behind his shield. This causes ranged attacks against the wielder to be made at a disadvantage.

This way, a wielder may spend his action say on a dash while moving towards ranged attackers for instance.

That makes a certain amount of sense. Proficient wielders only, though.
