Arch Line
The Itzal Archwing teleports a short distance, dropping all enemy target locks.
Duration:7 / 10 / 12 / 15 s
Range:160 / 240 / 320 / 400 m (teleportation range)
80 / 120 / 160 / 200 m (stun radius)

  • In Archwing missions, the Itzal instantly teleports 160 / 240 / 320 / 400 meters in the direction of the HUD's target reticle, breaking all enemy missile locks in the process. Enemies within 80 / 120 / 160 / 200 meters of the destination point will be stunned for 7 / 10 / 12 / 15 seconds.
    • In Landscape missions, the range of this ability is reduced down to 16 / 24 / 32 / 40 meters of teleportation and 8 / 12 / 16 / 20 meters of the stun radius. Additionally, enemies affected will only be temporarily staggered for 3 seconds.
    • Stun duration in Archwing mode is affected by Ability Duration, while the stun duration in landscape mode is not.
    • Teleportation range and stun radius are affected by Ability Range.
  • Blink is limited by line of sight and cannot teleport the Itzal through or into solid objects.
  • If aimed at objects or enemies, Blink will stop a short distance from the target.
  • When Blink is cast, the Itzal's momentum is retained as it instantaneously travels from one point to another.
  • Casting this ability nullifies a Temporal Dreg tractor beam's hold on the Itzal.

Tips & Tricks
  • Use Blink to cross long distances quickly. When activated whilst moving or sprinting, Blink can very easily teleport you up to 2 or 3 times the listed range, making it very easy to quickly cover the long distances between points in Archwing Interception missions.
  • Whilst judging the distances can be tricky, this ability can be useful for closing in to make melee attacks.
