A shield slam attack involves taking a swipe with your shield arm at an
enemy, with the shield angled to strike on its edge. This is in contrast
to a shield bash, which strikes an enemy with flat face of your shield,

A shield slam concentrates all the force of the attack on the rim of the
shield, effectively making it an edged weapon. Taking a shield slam full
to the face may briefly daze or stun living creatures.
