— In-game description


  • The first and third attacks are leap finishers. The second attack is not.
  • Unlike most leap finishers, the effects of the leap finisher are applied when the leap begins, rather than when the user lands. This also means the leap finisher will only work when it starts in a field, not when it simply passes through one.
  • If you're in range of a target you will not move.
  • The Scrapper only evades while leaping forward (even if you don't physically move), not when striking. In total, the Scrapper evades 3 times for roughly 0.3 seconds each time, evading for a total of 1 second.
  • Can be canceled using a kit or by weapon swapping (out of combat).
