Let’s take a look at Fade’s abilities
Fade throws an orb that, after 1.5 seconds, crashes on the ground and turns into a nightmarish entity that reveals enemy locations caught in its line of sight. Enemies can shoot this entity to destroy it.
On using this ability, Fade throws an orb that upon crashing, causes area-of-effect damage to enemies. Also, enemies caught in the area will not able to escape it by ‘normal means’ for 5 seconds.
A recon skill where Fade searches for enemies by sending out a prowler that travels in a straight line. If the prowler finds an enemy, it’ll chase them and nearsight them for 3 seconds. Players can steer the prowler by moving their mouse while holding down the fire button.
Nightfall is Fade’s ultimate where she fires a wave of energy that passes through walls and if an enemy is caught in it, the skill trails them and deals decay damage for 12 seconds. Enemies are also deafened.
