Radial Howl
Let out a ferocious howl that stuns nearby enemies and causes Sentients to shed any built up resistances.
Strength:N/A
Duration:7 / 10 / 12 / 15 s
Range:8 / 12 / 15 / 25 m

Info
  • Excalibur Umbra howls, releasing an intense flash of light that affects enemies within 8 / 12 / 15 / 25 meters and stuns them for 7 / 10 / 12 / 15 seconds.
    • Duration is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Radius is affected by Ability Range.
    • Stunned enemies are vulnerable to melee finishers and susceptible to stealth damage bonus.
    • Radial Howl will not affect enemies behind obstacles in the environment unless Excalibur Umbra has line of sight, or unless the enemy is aware of Excalibur Umbra within a short period of time (e.g., an enemy that spots Excalibur Umbra and runs out of view is still susceptible to Radial Howl if the ability is used within a small time frame).
  • Enemies affected by the ability are stunned for the entire duration.
    • Bosses are still able to move, attack, or use abilities while affected by the ability.
    • Bosses will attack the player's last known location and will follow the sound of gunfire.
    • Successive casts will reduce the duration of the ability's effect on bosses.
  • Sentient fighters and Shadow Stalker will have their resistances removed if they are affected by Radial Howl.
  • Security cameras will deactivate their laser barriers for the duration.
  • Affected enemies have smoke diffusing from their eyes or similar body part for the effect's duration.
  • Can be used while running, attacking, blocking, jumping, sliding, forward flipping, wall running or clinging to a wall.
  • Has a cast time of 1.0 seconds, affected by Natural Talent and Speed Drift.

Tips & Tricks
  • Radial Howl lets players quickly disable enemies, especially if they are surrounded. This allows players to either escape or to deal with the enemies.
  • Covert Lethality allows for lethal damage to be dealt to units stunned by this ability.
  • Radial Howl allows the removal of Sentient resistances without having to switch to Operator mode.

Maximization

Maximization is a form of specialization: mods may be blended to result in values that vary between the top-end limits listed here. Click any maximized link to learn how to build it.


Bugs
  • If Excalibur Umbra managed to use an item (such as a Life Support in Survival) while casting the ability, Radial Howl will be cast twice: First, in a slowed animation and the second as the actual ability. Both animations still counts as a single Radial Howl.
