Tips and Details

  • Despite the tooltip stating the [Enhanced] effect only increases the Shockwave damage, it affects the Kick damage as well.
    • This is a glitch, and was supposed to be fixed on the 07/28/2016 KR patch, though the Kick is currently still affected.


  • The skill is based on DFO's Female Gunner skill Needle Sobat
  • Sobat is derived from a Japanese wrestling technique known as ローリング・ソバット (lit. Rolling Sobatto), a specific type of "Ushiro-geri" or simply "Back Kick".
  • The first part of the skill is virtually identical to Backstep before it was changed to an evasion skill.

Old Version

  • In the past, Needle Sobat only consisted of a kick and did not include a back step attack.
