Range:2 m (contact radius)
6 m (explosion radius)
Misc:1 s (dash duration)
≤ 5 s (hover duration)
5 m/s (dive initial speed)

Info
  • Zephyr generates a powerful gust of wind for propulsion, as she soars toward the aiming reticle at a speed of 30 meters per second for 1 second. While in flight, Zephyr rides an air current with a 2 meters radius, which inflicts 50 Slash b Slash damage and knockdown to all enemies it contacts.
    • Casting Tail Wind while Zephyr is airborne halves the energy cost.
    • If cast from the ground, aiming at any direction propels Zephyr forward, while aiming straight down causes Zephyr to skyrocket upward. Holding the ability key (default 1 ) instead prepares Zephyr for a Hover Jump technique.
    • If cast while airborne, aiming at any direction propels Zephyr forward, while aiming straight down or at a slight angle toward the ground causes Zephyr to perform a Dive Bomb technique.
    • Zephyr maintains a portion of the momentum generated by Tail Wind once the dash ends.
    • Each Tail Wind dash resets Aim Glide, allowing Zephyr to perform this maneuver repeatedly without landing.
  • Zephyr executes different aerial combat techniques with Tail Wind depending on the activation conditions:

  • While Zephyr is on the ground, holding the ability key (default 1 ) for up to 2 seconds causes Zephyr to brace for launch as she generates force for liftoff. Once fully charged, Zephyr skyrockets upward to a maximum height of 7.5 meters; enemies within a 6 meters radius around the launch point are inflicted 80 Impact b Impact damage and suffer a knockdown. At the apex of the jump, Zephyr suspends herself in midair and hover in place for up to 5 seconds at full charge.
    • Due to Hover Jump requiring Zephyr to be on land, Tail Wind consumes the full energy cost.
    • Releasing the ability key before a full charge results in reduced height and hover duration based on the amount of time spent charging.
    • Zephyr cannot move away or perform Maneuvers while hovering, but can aim freely, fire and reload primary and secondary weapons, as well as cast abilities.
    • Casting Tail Wind again, rolling (default Shift ) or using quick melee attack (default E ) will cancel hovering. Using the melee method can transition directly into a melee ground slam when aiming downward.
  • Cannot charge for jump when Zephyr is airborne. Activation in midair will result in a dash or dive bomb instead.
  • While charging, a charge meter appears around the aiming reticle that gradually fills clockwise.

  • While Zephyr is airborne, casting Tail Wind downward causes Zephyr to nose dive into the ground at an initial speed of 5 meters per second; during the dive, Zephyr will continue to accelerate until impact. On impact, Zephyr creates an explosion in a 6 meters radius around the landing point that inflicts 40 base Impact b Impact damage amplified by height of the dive, as well as Knockdown on all enemies in range.
    • Activating Dive Bomb at a height less than 4 meters will only inflict base damage.
  • Performing a dive bomb during a Bullet Jump causes Zephyr to softly rebound away from the landing point and back into the air.

  • Activating Tail Wind multiple times allows Zephyr to propel herself farther into the air, effectively simulating flight. There is a slight cooldown between activation.
  • Casting Tail Wind interrupts reloading.
  • Air current visual effects and hover jump charge meter are affected by Zephyr's chosen Warframe energy color.
