Details Edit

Upon first activating Shadow Step, Reaper is able to mark a location within range, then teleports to that location over the course of two seconds. This is done simply by aiming at the location, then pressing the primary fire button. Pressing the secondary fire button will cancel it, as long as it is pressed before the teleportation sequence begins. Aiming at the side of a ledge will put the target on its top, allowing Reaper to ascend to a higher level.

Reaper is very vulnerable during Shadow Step, as he can not shoot, crouch, walk, jump, or reload during the animation. Reaper has several voice lines that are very prominent when teleporting to nearby enemies.

Shadow Step can not be used while jumping or falling.
