Tips and Details

  • The traps will explode even if they do not touch a target.
  • When a target is hit by the skill, the successive hits will cause it to move towards the center of the explosions before knocking down.
  • The traps have a fixed maximum range, so the skill should be used with caution, because if one uses it too high up, the traps will explode mid-air before even hitting the ground.
  • This skill is affected by platforms, which means the traps don't pass through them and will explode if in contact with any platform between the throw.
  • The skill is affected by the Free Training hit count error:
    • By default, it will deal 8 hits instead of 7.
    • With the Useful trait, it will deal 11 hits instead of 13.
