Creates an energy-based containment field in which captives are held suspended in stasis.
|Strength:6 / 8 / 10 / 12 (affected enemies)|
15 (contact damage)
|Duration:8 / 10 / 12 / 15 s|
|Range:5 / 7 / 8 / 10 m|
- Vauban releases a device that creates an energy-based containment field. On contact with an enemy, the device will deal 15 Blast damage. When the device is deployed, the field expands to a radius of 5 / 7 / 8 / 10 meters. Enemies that are caught within the field or enter the field after deployment will be suspended and incapacitated for 8 / 10 / 12 / 15 seconds. A single device can hold a maximum of 6 / 8 / 10 / 12 enemies.
- Number of affected enemies and contact damage are affected by Power Strength, and the contact damage can be increased by body-part multipliers.
- For more information about the contact damage, see this blog and this follow-up.
- Duration is affected by Power Duration.
- Field radius is affected by Power Range.
- The device will deploy on the first surface it makes contact with and will hover approximately one meter perpendicular to the surface. Regardless of the orientation of the surface, the containment field will always project horizontally.
- Enemies held up by Bastille before actual encounters will assume a state of unawareness. These enemies will be susceptible to Stealth Damage Multipliers from melee attacks over the ability's duration.
- Will not hold most Bosses and Capture targets suspended in the air. Instead, Bastille slows the targets down until their crowd control diminishing return mechanic reduces the ability's effectiveness on them.
- Can be used while performing many actions without interrupting them, including reloading.
- Can be cast multiple times while active.
- Main article: Repelling Bastille
- When used in narrow hallways or choke-points, enemies that are held up in the field block the path of others behind, negating the enemy limit and blocking all the enemies from advancing.
- Bastille spawns from a ball that Vauban throws in an arc, so it can be deployed where aimed.
