Munitions Vortex is a Battle Avionic equipped in the Defensive slot. When activated, Munitions Vortex deploys a bubble that vacuums all bullets and missiles that pass through it for a short duration, causing them to orbit the bubble and damage enemies the pass through much like MagIcon272 Mag's Magnetize130xDark Magnetize. When the duration ends or the ability is reactivated, the bubble detonates to deal all accumulated damage over an area as Blast b Blast damage, akin to NovaIcon272 Nova's AntimatterDrop130xDark Antimatter Drop.

Tips & TricksEdit

  • Projectile crawls forward in a straight line from the Railjack for a very short distance (~50m) before stopping; this travel time counts against its maximum duration. As such, it is recommended to close the gap as much as possible before activation.
  • Though powerful when charged, its effect has a small effective radius. As such, it is best used when combined with Tether or Void Hole, allowing enemies to be grouped, immobilized, and struck by any orbiting projectiles before detonation.
  • The Vortex will pull on the missiles launched by abilities such as Void Hole or Shatter Burst, but does not act as a surface that would cause them to immediately detonate. As such, the Vortex can be used as a grouping tool for multiple missile-based effects, stacking them in one spot.
  • The Vortex can pull in incoming enemy fire, allowing it to be used as a shield against enemy projectiles.
  • Can be an effective response to incoming Ramsleds, as the projectile can be placed as a trap, charged by fire, and detonated when pods are close to the Railjack.
