Psychic Bolts
Nyx launches a cluster of force bolts at enemies, using telekinesis to adjust flight paths and seek nearby targets. Hits strip some enemy defenses.
Strength:20 / 40 / 60 / 80% (debuff amount)
Duration:5 / 7 / 9 / 11s
Misc:3 / 4 / 5 / 6 (bolts)
60 m (targeting range)

  • Nyx launches 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 bolts of telekinetic energy that seek out enemies, removing 20 / 40 / 60 / 80% of the target's armor and shields, slowing Infested enemies by 20 / 40 / 60 / 80% and removing Ancient Infested's auras for 5 / 7 / 9 / 11s.
    • Debuff amount is affected by Ability Strength.
    • Debuff duration is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Number of bolts is not affected by mods.
    • Casting range is not affected by Ability Range.
    • Bolts bypass obstacles in the environment.
    • Psychic Bolts will not target enemies behind obstacles in the environment unless Nyx has line of sight, or unless the enemy is aware of Nyx within a short period of time (e.g., an enemy that spots Nyx and runs out of view can still be targeted by Psychic Bolts if the ability is used within a small time frame).
  • Psychic Bolts can be recasted while the ability is still active, doing so will cancel the effect on previous remaining target(s).
    • Note that in-game TIPS for Psychic Bolts is not updated to reflect this change, still saying "Hold key to cancel the ability".
  • Targeted enemies will briefly radiate energy as a visual indicator, and an audio cue will be played.
  • Psychic Bolts is a one-handed action. As such, it can be used while performing various maneuvers and actions without interruption.

Tips & Tricks
  • At 125% Ability Strength, debuff amount will reach 100%, which causes targets' defenses to be completely removed.
  • Psychic Bolts synergizes well with damage types that are effective against health classes (e.g. Cloned Flesh and Flesh), like Slash b Slash and/or Viral b Viral.
    • On the other hand, Corrosive b Corrosive or Magnetic b Magnetic, which is effective against armor/shield classes, gains less benefit from Psychic Bolts' debuff.
