  • Perform a bullet jump (Ctrl  + Spacebar ) or double jump (Spacebar  x2) then perform a ground slam (look downward and press E ) to create a wave of energy.
  • The wave is ~5 meters wide, and will travel forward for ~31 meters, going over terrain elevations and passing through enemies, dealing 10 Blast b Blast Damage, before exploding at the end and dealing Viral b Viral damage in a ~7 meters radius. Enemies hit by the wave will tumble backward and be suspended in the air similarly to RhinoStomp130xDark Rhino Stomp for a short time period, up to 4 seconds with a full set.
    • This wave has a very high chance for Viral b Viral procs to occur, if not 100%, but also has a chance to proc your weapon's elemental effects as well.
  • Trading tax scales with rank:
