Players will be locked out of using weapons, building, and taking loot upon using the Shadow Bomb on themselves.
Shadow Bomb - Weapon Tips
Use to Disengage from Enemies
With the faster movement speed, new jump abilities, and near invincibility, the Shadow Bomb is a good weapon to use when trying to run away from a fight. Throw one at your feet and immediately speed out of the area. Jumping over obstacles makes it harder for enemies to follow you.
Flank Enemies when Shrouded
The Shadow Bomb can also be used offensively, especially against enemies holed up in their forts. Use one to sneak inside their defenses. You can either take them out yourself or act as a distraction so your allies can launch an attack.
Great for Escaping the Storm
The faster movement speed that the Shadow Bomb offers is extremely helpful when it comes to outrunning the storm. With up to 6 stacks, you'll have 36 seconds of quicker movement speed if needed.
Use Before Getting Noticed By Enemies
When looking to go an offensive with this item, ensure that you use it before any of the enemies notices you first. This will give you the element of surprise and will not have the enemies anticipating your appearance.
