Vents out the Archwing's propulsion core, confusing enemy projectiles and causing them to detonate.
Duration:10 / 12 / 14 / 16 s (contrail duration)
6 / 7 / 8 / 9 s (vent duration)

  • In Archwing and Landscape missions, the Elytron vents its propulsion core for 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 seconds, leaving a gaseous contrail that neutralizes enemy missiles and projectiles. The contrail lingers for 10 / 12 / 14 / 16 seconds before dissipating.
  • Works against missiles released by Hellion Dargyn variants, as well as Dreg, Ogma, and Gox energy projectiles.
  • Cannot be recast until the venting duration has expired.
