Tips and Details[edit]

  • Since each fired missile can divide into 3 smaller missiles, and these smaller missiles can do more total damage as well as spread out across more enemies, it is best to use the skill while facing away from a target, to ensure each missile has enough time to divide before hitting a target.
    • While normally the two are mutually exclusive, it is actually possible to 'sweet-spot' the skill so that an undivided missile collides and deals Bullet Attack damage to a target while still dividing afterwards, allowing the skill to deal more damage than is typically possible.
      • In some instances this can result in bizarre behavior where more divided missiles deal damage than should be possible (16+ times), though this is very inconsistent.
  • Like Scare Chase, this skill seeks the nearest target, including obstacles and boxes.
  • Missiles are often wasted on targets already defeated when the party host has significant latency. This means it takes longer for the damage dealt by Dread Chase to be sent to the server.
    • Due to the United States' Internet infrastructure, this is a common issue for NA server. It started to occur after Evolution 2.
  • This skill should be used while away from edges since Chung steps forward before shooting the missiles. If he steps off a platform, the skill will be canceled.


Old Version[edit]

Video Description
Between its initial release and the 10/29/2015 KR Patch, Dread Chase's missiles used to not divide.
  • The divided missiles were instead a feature of its Skill Note which was later integrated into the base skill.
