|Duration:2 / 4 / 6 / 8 s|
- Ash throws down a smoke bomb that staggers enemies within a radius of 10 meters for a short duration. Ash becomes untargetable for 2 / 4 / 6 / 8 seconds.
- Even though Ash is untargetable, enemies will continue to attack near his last known location, and will make attempts to retaliate when harmed.

- Hides Ash from Security Cameras, which prevents them from activating laser barriers.
- Smoke Screen will also apply to any equipped companion.
- Ash can not be knocked down or staggered during the cast animation.
- Can be cast while moving or in mid-air.
- Cannot be recast while active.
- Smoke Screen does not end when Ash is downed.

- Smoke Screen does not prevent damage from Orokin Lasers or AoE damage such as poison clouds and explosions.
- The ability's short duration makes Smoke Screen only useful for quick flanking movements.
- The low duration also necessitates using the ability with care and paying attention to the remaining duration when active.
- Can be used when surrounded to stagger nearby enemies and escape.
