Info
  • Hydroid marks a targeted location for orbital bombardment over unrestricted range, calling forth an artillery barrage-like salvo of water missiles from above to strike the marked area 1 meter in radius for 1.2 seconds. Water missiles launch from above in a salvo of 4 per second, with each missile exploding on impact dealing 25 Impact b Impact damage to enemies within a 5 meters explosion radius.
    • Damage does not bypass obstacles in the environment and does not diminish with distance.
    • The barrage distinctly resembles a salvo of cannon-fire from an old warship. Like said salvo, it is not terribly accurate, but can threaten a wide area for several seconds and an enemy can be struck multiple times.
    • Water missiles have a chance to strike both grounded and airborne targets directly.
  • Tapping the button (default 1 ) initiates the ability cast immediately. Holding the button for up to 2.5 seconds allows Hydroid to charge Tempest Barrage for up to 100% damage per explosion and increased barrage duration, in exchange for double energy cost.
    • Holding highlights the area around the aiming reticle in Hydroid's energy color, allowing free aim before releasing the hotkey to cast Tempest Barrage at the target location.
      • While charging, an audible flowing liquid sound plays.
    • The barrage will be centered on the spot where the reticle is pointing up to the first solid object within view. This allows Tempest Barrage to be cast at distant locations as long as one has line of sight. Note that it tends to fall short if cast through a door or gateway.
    • The barrage spot is decided upon releasing the cast; you can move the reticle freely before releasing the ability button.
  • Can be cast during Undertow130xDark Undertow over unrestricted range.
  • Tempest Barrage is a One-Handed Action that allows casting during movement, while midair, and on ziplines.
  • Can be recast while active to create multiple barrage instances.
  • Water missiles and their impact indicator circles are affected by Hydroid's chosen Warframe energy color.
