"Engage Afterburners, granting a brief burst of speed"

Afterburner is an Accord Assault skill, but can be equipped on any Assault battleframe. It boosts the player in a straight line towards where they are aiming. This can be used to quickly enter the battlefield, retreat, or add to the damage caused by Crater by boosting the player higher into the air before deploying. When used, it will also give a bonus to all movement speed for a short time.

It can also negate fall damage if activated before impact.

Afterburner can store multiple charges. Max Deployment modules increase the maximum number of charges.

Prefixes & Modules

Afterburner can come with the Cooled, Energized, and Swift prefix as well as the Custom prefix.

Modules that modify Max Deployment, Cooldown, Duration, and Force can be used.
