Super Ability: Shadowshot

Nightstalkers wield the Shadowshot, a void-type elemental which tethers targets through a Void Anchor to decrease their mobility and strength.

Way of the Trapper

  • Deadfall – Transforms the Void Anchors into booby traps. The duration and range are raised allowing them to ensnare victims more effectively.
  • Keen Scout – Hastens the sprint and sneak while improving the tracker of the Nightstalker. Ensnared victims receive a mark to pinpoint their location easily.
  • Snare Bomb – A melee Skill which deploys a smoke bomb trap to far distances. The throwable will cling to surfaces and explodes upon detecting close enemies. This cripples the affected targets.
  • Vanishing Step – Performing a dodge makes the Nightstalker invisible for a brief amount of time.

Way of the Pathfinder

  • Heart of the Pack – By taking out enemies caught in the Void Anchor, it produces Orbs of Light which raises all the attributes of the Armor for both the Nightstalker and his teammates.
  • Lockdown – This Perk extends the duration of Grenade and Smoke which strengthens damage dealt and grants terrain control.
  • Moebius Quiver – Enables quick burst shots when using the Shadowshot. Damage will increase when fired at tethered enemies.
  • Vanish in Smoke – Hauls a smoke bomb which sends a cloud that grants an invisible cloak to both the caster and the allies.

Grenade Abilities

  • Spike Grenade This explosive will fasten on any surface and will shine with a damage causing Void Light.
  • Voidwall Grenade Upon detonating, the explosion will form a horizontal wall of Void Light.
  • Vortex Grenade This grenade produces a vortex which will deal residual damage over time to all enemies caught in the middle.
