— In-game description [?]
- Ankle Shots - Critical hits with pistols and harpoon guns have a chance to cripple foes. Pistol and harpoon attacks deal increased damage to crippled foes.
- The attack occurs in two phases:
- Creates a point-blank area of effect smoke cloud which blinds enemies in the area when created and then pulsing blind once per 2 seconds while the field lasts.
- The projectile attack occurs after the smoke cloud is created, meaning it becomes a combo attack and blinds its target (unless another combo field was placed prior to smoke field, in which case the projectile will combo with that field).
- This is one of the few skills that can combo with itself.
