Afterburner is an Elytron Augment Mod for Core Vent that allows any sort of Damage/Blast DamageDmgBlastSmall64.png Blast damage to ignite the fuel cloud for a given duration, dealing Damage/Heat DamageDmgHeatSmall64.png Heat damage to any enemy inside the cloud.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Duration is affected by Ability Duration.
  • Damage is affected by Ability Strength.
  • Detonating a cloud will also detonate all other clouds that were produced during the length of Core Vent's activation.
    • However, activating Core Vent a second time will require the new chain of clouds to be ignited separately. Thus, an ignited line can not ignite another line made by a separate Core vent use.
  • The cloud can be triggered by anything generating Blast damage, including enemies and enemy projectiles. This can be used to add a buffer around players when facing enemies using missiles.
  • Each cloud can hit multiple times, thus stacking clouds in the same area can be used to create an area of denial at choke points.
    • Alternatively, activating Core Vent and flying around the local area can create a wall of explosions to weaken the enemy.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • As a Client, weapons may not detonate the fuel clouds. Using Bloomer, however, will correctly detonate the clouds.
  • As Host, the Core Vent fuel trail is visible. But once the fuel trail gets ignited, the burning clouds visually disappear for the Host, but still deal damage.
