Weapons Malfunction disables a targets ranged weapons for a short time and reduces the damage they deal when they come back online. It also has a chance to expose the target.

This ability is useful for forcing enemies with powerful ranged weapons to engage in melee combat. It also can prevent enemies with special attacks such as Rebecca Simmons and Armek of Borg from either using them or reducing their damage.
