Notes[edit | edit source]

Ignis Wraith's hitboxes, as of U22.13.3. Note that the initial cylindrical AoE (red) was removed in 22.14.0 in an undocumented change.

  • The Ignis Wraith's hit detection is composed of two parts:
    • A perfectly accurate central beam that reaches up to 27 meters. This beam has a 0.15 meter thickness, unlike other beam weapons whose beams are very narrow.
    • A 3-meter spherical radius that appears at the zone of impact or maximum range.
  • The Ignis Wraith can deal headshots and target enemy weakspots.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The message, with the first letter of each line bolded for clarity, read as follows;

It's coming - but not today. The earliest it will release is tomorrow.

Good news - we're working on our first Clan Operation in quite some time to be a part of this, so please bear with us as we get all the details in

Nice order.

If you are in a competitive Clan: The moment the Operation begins, your Clan Roster is locked in. Clan membership changes that occur after the

Start of the Operation will not be reflected in the Leaderboards.

Wise move: Prepare!


Act now!

If you wish to readjust your membership, do so before the Operation begins!

This is advanced warning.

Heads up!
