“You seek power, you pay in blood.”This item's acquisition and usage is limited to player versus player missions.
Impair can only be applied from certain melee combos (for example: Fateful Truth's Leading Blade) or from Warframe abilities (for example: Excalibur's Slash Dash). Those affected by it will emit a blue aura on their bodies and, for two seconds, disables their ability to jump, bullet jump, and sprint, but are still able to roll, wall latch, and aim glide (the last two applies if the opponent was in midair). Any opponent that has both Knockdown and Impair status effects will have their body emit a white aura.
