Shadow Leap is a ground-targeted leap (range: 900) that allows players to make tricky jumps, similar to the utility of a leap or a teleport and to that of the Experimental Teleportation Gun. The skill also allows one to jump slightly higher than usual. For example, when encountering an obstacle, such as a wall, the player will still be moved upwards the full height of the leap, possibly allowing them to vault the wall.

Under the effects of stability, the character will leap forward without vertical lift.

If attempting to use the rifle without perfect line of sight the rifle will backfire, destroying the rifle and causing knock back instead of a leap. The rifle will never randomly backfire, it only backfires if there is a problem with line of sight such as an invisible wall being in the way.
