Player Notes Edit
- Recharge speed is based off damage absorbed by the aegis, with less damage absorbed resulting in a quicker recharge speed. Absorbing no damage will result in a near-instant recharge.
- Backlash can be sustained while moving and jumping, but not while sprinting or dashing.
- Projectiles will be reflected wherever the player is aiming, meaning one enemy's projectiles can be reflected onto another enemy.
- Backlash is particularly powerful against the Remnant, as both Observers and Nullifiers shoot projectiles that are very powerful and very easy to deflect.
- Attacks that stagger the player, such as a Berserker's Flak Cannon or a Hydra's missiles, cannot be reflected and instantly break Backlash.
- Single-player: Pathfinder Ryder - Starting Biotic Skill
- Multiplayer: Asari Duelist, Asari Sentinel, Human Guardian
