IMHO it's best just to keep it as needing a -1 save mod to take down
shields. They're there to help prevent damage from superweapons. If we
had 2 bolters = 1 heavy, then a swarm of infantry would be used to strip
shields, then a war engine would pick off the titan with some big
weapon. Not very fair really.

Just imagine it as a swarm of bullets, each hitting the shield at
different times and places. They individually lack enough punch to down
the shield. Sure, they might in total equal a single heavy, but heavies
hit one narrow area with alot of force.
