Related traits[edit]



  • Like turrets, mortar skills cannot critically hit.
  • A player could use the mortar in between stability-granting intervals to gain 3 stacks on use and another 3 stacks under three seconds.
  • All stability is lost when the player stops using the mortar.
Skills gained while using Mortar properly reflect the range increase from Elite Supplies but the Mortar skill itself does not.
  • Traits which affect turrets do not affect Mortar, but Tool Kit skills can be used to repair it.
  • Mortar skills cannot glance.
  • A Mortar skill still in midair when the Mortar expires will also disappear.
