Cryo Blast - Notes

  • The ability deals no damage
  • Cryo Blast freezes unprotected enemies and chills protected. Chilled enemies move slower
  • Only frozen enemies can be primed for Cryo Explosion
  • Freezing happens in about 1.5 seconds
  • It is most effective against unprotected enemies like husks, cannibals, etc. which can then be exploited with Cryo Explosion.
