Player Notes Edit

  • Siege Pulse acts as as a detonator for Tech Bursts, Cryo Explosions, and Fire Explosions. As a result, it synergises well with other tech classes and with priming Ammo Bonuses.
  • If the targeted enemy is killed by Siege Pulse, then its body will disintegrate; however, the bodies of un-targeted enemies killed in the blast will remain. This allows Cannibals one fewer body to consume to create armor-plating.
  • If evolved for "Damage Protection" and "Number of Shots", it can be treated as an armor power, as the Juggernaut may benefit from both keeping the charges stored and firing them.
    • This approach also eliminates the long power cooldown compared to the Juggernaut's other powers, allowing heavier weapons to be carried, such as the Geth Spitfire and Javelin.
    • This approach also maximizes the power's ability to knock down enemies, making it effective at long-range crowd control. On higher difficulties, a single pulse will be insufficient to kill certain enemies, but will either stagger them or knock them down. This can give teammates room to escape, especially from Abominations.
  • The Geth Plasma Shotgun pairs well with this power: alternate pulses with charged shots from the shotgun to keep up a steady barrage.
  • The pulse projectile originates near the currently equipped weapon's barrel and can be fired whilst zoomed in, even with sniper rifles or weapons with scope modifications. This does mean that the projectile can impact surfaces near the weapon barrel when launching, so be mindful of obstructions.
    • Firing a pulse can interrupt charging or 'spin up' sequences for certain weapons, such as the N7 Typhoon.
