  • This skill causes 332 Defiance bar damage.
  • This fast, efficient interrupt is useful for both offense and defense. It launches a target and gives the engineer a positioning advantage while creating a large amount of distance. Once the target is knocked down, the engineer has a second to attack from range or close in with Jump Shot. As a further bonus, it cures a variety of movement-impeding conditions whether it hits or not.
