- 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).

- 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.
