Fires seven beams of continuous biochemical energy which depletes the life from any surface they contact.
The Phage is an Infested shotgun that fires seven beams in a wide spread. Aiming (default RMB) focuses these beams together, allowing the Phage to perform well against groups or individual targets as needed.
The time required for the beams to fully focus is approximately 1.5 seconds.
Sprinting, falling, or otherwise interrupting your movement will result in the Phage's focus being reset to its maximum spread.
Casting Nova'sAntimatter Absorb will not reset Phage's focus. In theory, this makes Nova and Phage a very deadly combo as Nova can cast Antimatter Absorb and immediately deal damage to the orb.
Casting Limbo'sBanish will also not reset Phage's focus. This means Limbo is able to cast Rift Walk, focus the Phage's beams in safety, and then use Banish to pull targets into the Rift in rapid succession. Assuming targets survive the transition, Limbo can then finish them off very quickly with the Phage.
Like with all continuous weapons, you can be cloaked by a Shade or the Huras Kubrow as you are firing the weapon, and the cloak will not disengage unless you move out of range of enemies or stop firing the weapon and fire it again, granting high DPS against enemies with little retaliation.
