  • This mod can be acquired by attaining the rank of General under Steel Meridian, the rank of Genius under Cephalon Suda, or the rank of Tempest in Conclave, and spending ReputationBlackx6425,000 to purchase.


  • The duration of the frozen trail left by Ice Wave is affected by Ability Duration.
  • Multiple frozen trails can be active at once, limited only by the duration of each trail.
  • Allied players are unaffected by the trail.
  • Works extremely well against melee-focused enemies such as most Infested, slowing entire mobs of enemies and making it easier to kill them.
    • Infested can be even further slowed by the player and squad members equipping Infested Impedance.
    • This augment synergizes very well with Loki's Radial Disarm, forcing enemy units to use melee attacks and thus become more susceptible to the augment's effects.
  • Nullifier Crewman will destroy any cold area that their bubbles touch, making it less useful against corpus.
