Tips and Details

  • The mortar appears to be black on the enemy team to prevent confusion.
  • The distance between the mortar and the target does not matter. It will prioritize attacking the closest enemy to Chung within a certain range.
  • The bullets can deal damage for as long as they are falling, resulting in no limit to how many hits they can deal. Due to how high up the bullets spawn, taller enemies will take more hits from this skill. For example, Giant Training Monkey will take 3 hits, while Interdimensional Colossus will take 8 hits.
    • Each bullet will typically do at least a minimum of 2 hits assuming the target does not move out of the way, one from the bullet colliding with the target and another once it hits the ground.
  • Each hit from the bullet will do splash damage, making this skill extremely potent against groups of enemies.
  • There is about a 1 second gap between when a bullet is fired and when it lands. Since the bullets will fall where a target was when they are marked instead of where they currently are, this skill is very liable to miss if targets are being pushed too much.
  • Casting this skill multiple times in Free Training can cause your game to crash.
  • Contrary to other summons, Mortar is affected by buffs that change the caster's size, such as Blue Mystic Flask or Natal Chart's Mystical Effect.



  • The marking beacon represents Echo's head.
  • The shaft of the mortar has the same design as the top half of Tactical Trooper's Destroyer.
  • The bullets will fall down in an arc based on how far the target is from the mortar, to imitate how it would look if the mortar bullet actually travelled all the way from where it was fired.

Old Version

Video Description
Between its initial release and the 08/01/2019 KR Patch, Mortar was an Active skill which functions nearly identical to how it currently does except smaller, weaker, and the projectile will explode immediately upon contact.
