Notes[edit]

  • The leap's maximum range is roughly 240 units.
  • You can use this skill even when facing away from your target.
  • This skill makes you jump in a direction depending on your current orientation to your target.
    • If the target is within a 180° cone facing forward, or if you have no target, you will jump backwards.
    • If the target is within a 180° cone facing backwards, you will jump forwards, rotating to face the target and firing at it. Now facing the target you jump a little forward and then jump a little backward.
