Augment Mod: Freezing Forces allows Freeze to be cast on allies which will add 100% cold damage to their attacks.

Ice Wave

Augment Mod: Ice Wave Impedance leaves a trail that slows enemies that pass through it.



Frost deploys a sphere around an area that absorbs damage and slows enemies that try to enter.

This is useful for defending a spot or for protecting you or your allies when a source of damage is about to attack the squad.

Enemies close to Frost will be frozen and pushed away depending on the radius and some may shatter upon hitting surfaces.

The health of Snow Globe will stack whenever recast inside another Snow Globe.

Augment Mod: Chilling Globe has a chance to freeze enemies when they are inside the Snow Globe.



Frost freezes enemies in a large radius around him and causes the ice to explode, damaging them and leaving them frozen for a certain duration.

Enemies that are under the effect after Avalanche is cast will have their armor reduced for a period of time.

This ability is great for dealing damage in an area and for crowd control as it can stop enemies in their tracks and give you and your squad a chance to kill them before they thaw out.
