Stasis LimboRiftWalk
Freezes Rift-bound enemies. While active, enemy projectiles are arrested in mid-air, resuming its trajectory when stasis ends.
Duration:8 / 10 / 12 / 15 s
Misc:300 (limit)

  • Limbo halts all enemies in the Rift, freezing them in suspended animation for 8 / 10 / 12 / 15 seconds. Additionally, enemy weapon hit-scan gunfire, projectiles, and beams in flight within the Rift cease to move for the duration. While active, the Rift is able to contain 300 enemy weapon fire objects before it becomes unstable; exceeding this limit will end the ability prematurely to resume all Rift-bound enemy activity.
    • Duration is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Weapon fire object limit is not affected by mods.
    • While active, Stasis affects all enemies that enter the Rift at any time, regardless of distance from Limbo.
    • Cast and deactivation animations of 1 second, are affected by Natural Talent and Speed Drift.
  • Upon deactivation by pressing the ability key again (default 2 ), expiration, being dispelled, or reaching the limit, all Rift-bound enemies will resume their actions prior to Stasis, while all suspended objects will resume movement depending on priority:
    • All hit-scan bullets are released simultaneously.
    • Projectiles fly towards their set trajectory one by one, rather than simultaneously, by order of creation.
    • Beams appear to stretch into rectangular shapes if created during Stasis, and shrink toward the center once Stasis is deactivated while doing no damage (requires further testing)
    • Manual deactivation can be performed during other actions, such as reloading, shooting, casting abilities, sliding, while knocked-down or even during bleedout.
  • Stasis can be activated and deactivated, regardless of whether Limbo is in the Rift or not.
  • If there are multiple Limbo players on a squad, Stasis will not deactivate until either the weapon fire object limit is reached or the latest Stasis instance ends.
  • As the number of suspended objects approaches the limit, the Rift will visually distort and ripple with increasing intensity before Stasis ends prematurely.
  • For more information on Rift-related attributes, see the Rift Plane article.

Tips & Tricks
  • Status Effects inflicted upon enemies are indefinitely frozen while under Stasis.
    • Slash b Slash, Toxin b Toxin and Gas b Gas damage procs still ticks even when under Stasis. This allows status DoTs to infinitely ticks until the enemy dies/the ability ends.
  • Activating Stasis before banishing enemies is an effective way of protecting yourself whilst in the Rift.
  • Having Stasis active while your Cataclysm is active, will prevent you from taking any damage from new enemies that enter your Cataclysm's radius.
  • Synthesis targets and Feral Kavats can be put in Stasis, making it a lot easier to scan them.


Maximization is a form of specialization: mods may be blended to result in values that vary between the top-end limits listed here. Click any maximized link to learn how to build it.

The effects of Stasis held by one Limbo cannot be deactivated by a different Limbo. If two different Limbos activate their Stasis, deactivating the one cast second will not resume action of suspended targets.
