  • The turret overcharges when first deployed, changing its attack to Thump for 5 seconds. That is enough time for the turret to use Thump twice, both causing knockback, but only the first one triggering a blast finisher.
  • This skill is capable of causing a total of 3 Blast Finishers. 1 via Thump, 1 via Detonate Thumper Turret and 1 via Rumble.
