"Death from above! The Assault jumps into the air and descends on targets, impacting the ground. Enemies near the impact point are damaged based on distance traveled"

Crater is an Accord Assault skill, although it can be equipped on any Assault battleframe. It causes the assault to rise upwards for a short time and then quickly drop until hitting terrain, an enemy or another player, dealing damage in a radius around the impact site, as well as snaring and knocking back any enemies hit. More altitude adds more damage, though aiming gets more difficult.

Prefixes & Modules

Crater can come with the Barrage, Charged, Cooled, Distant, Energized, Expanding, Lasting, Strengthened, Swift, and Widened Prefix as well as the Custom prefix.

Modules that modify Recharge, AoE, Duration, and Force, can be used.


Recipes can be purchased at ARES Vendors allowing you to craft a Shielded Crater, which uses Drone Modules during crafting.

Modding Considerations

Gameplay Notes

Crater works well with Afterburner, as Afterburner can be used to quickly reach high altitudes. This makes it much easier for an Assault to do large amounts of damage with Crater.
