Munitions Vortex fires out a shot that attracts enemy attacks, mainly projectiles of fighters and stores them inside the vortex.
After an amount of time lapses or until the ability is activated again, the vortex will explode and release damage based on how much firepower it absorbed.
The Munitions Vortex projectile will move continuously for a bit after being shot out but will eventually slow down and stop.
Regardless of the direction that the enemy is firing, as long as they are within range of the vortex or if their projectiles pass nearby the vortex, the projectiles will be stored.
You will notice ammunition travelling towards the vortex instead of your direction when enemies are firing.
This ability is both defensive for preventing some but not all projectiles from hitting you as well as offensive for dealing damage in an area.
As long as an enemy is within the radius, they can take a lot of damage based on the total amount of damage that the vortex.
