Viral Impulse Burst causes multiple nearby foes to receive a speed increase, but their turn rate and throttle controls will be disabled. Auxiliary, shields, and weapons subsystems are set to 25 for the duration of the debuff, leaving foes in a compromising and forced retreat.

Basic Information[edit | edit source]

  • Profession: Intelligence
  • Locale: Space
  • Game Description: Send out a wave of viral information specifically designed to override nearby enemies' navigational controls. Affected foes will find their engine subsystem receiving a huge influx of additional power, along with an additional speed increase, but their turn rate and throttle controls will be disabled. The culmination of these effects is that foes will end up "running away" from the user, giving them an opportunity to regroup.
