Suppressing Fire is not an AoE ability as such, but it will apply its debuff to any enemy that you hit. This can be beneficial for crowd control purposes, and can be complemented by special abilities of weapons like the Split Beam Rifle; however, it has a three-second drop-off time. The graphical effect for this ability is also glaringly obvious due to its size; your enemies in PvP will easily see it.

It can also be used well with grenades (Plasma Grenade in particular).

Basic Information[edit]
