Ultimate Orbital Cannon
  • Ultimate Power Variant
  • After a few seconds, deals particle damage in a wide area effect around your target.
  • Continues to deal particle damage, this effect will follow the target.
  • Applies Plasma Burn every hit.
  • Leaves behind a Radiation Field, which has a chance to Stun and apply Trauma to targets based on how many stacks of Plasma Burn on them.

    Bug (Maybe?): Ultimate Orbital Cannon linked cooldowns
    - Ultimate Orbital Cannon puts regular Orbital Cannon on cooldown for Regular OC's cooldown.
    - Regular Orbital Cannon puts Ultimate Orbital Cannon on cooldown for Regular OC's cooldown.
    - Regular Orbital Cannon adds its cooldown to Ultimate OC if it was already on cooldown, potentially keeping Ultimate OC on cooldown almost indefinitely.


    Tested ranks 1, 2, 3 and Anvil of Dawn.

    Ultimate Chest Beam does not share this behavior. Regular CB has no cooldown, so its UVD and regular power operate independently. Not sure if it's a bug, but it does put it well behind Ultimate Chest Beam if you ever actually want to use regular Orbital Cannon.

    Cooldown issues aside, the secondary effects seem worthwhile for not having Overpower. d('.' )

    Still No Mods nor OSV access to the Debugger!
    Power Variable Devices/Weapon still cannot be manually coloured
    Still No Official Default Gamepad support!
    Are You really going to throw the gamepad users under the bus with this update? 🤨

    Yes
    It's just as big as Black Talon's version!
    Don't expect to be able to stack it with the regular [Orbital Cannon] because it goes on CD

    Congratulations to the Automaton and the Inventor, two of the worst ATs I had the misfortune to play with getting Orbital Cannon as ultimate device! Like this would help them
    The Inventor Especially which has everything stacked against it in every possible way!

    HUD Auras are reused assets from the Data Panel Costume transformation but Smaller!

    Binary Pulse and tech Pulse auras are assets from Technology powers, Zstore aura packs and Cybermind missions

    Was the PTS wiped? The character I have on there got deleted and all my accountwide unlocks - like ATs, costumes and powers - are gone.

    Sure looks like it, but PTS has become fairly useless since they messed up the Debugger a few weeks back. No more mods and no OSV currency.

    Wait... where did the Mods NPC go? Was about to say that Mods just got moved to an easy-to-miss NPC, but it's completely gone now.

    The HUD auras are nice. I wager that with a little tweaking they could also work as hand auras for the next lockbox.

    The best thing you can do for Champions Online, is increase the level to 50th, offer two more powers and additional points on super stats.

    Also, you might want to bring in some more of the "Pencil & Paper" villains and villain groups. And finally, allow us to fight Dr. Destroyer directly every now and then. And stop using nullifying our travel powers as part of making missions difficult.

    On top of often putting it on PTS only to have it patched in game one day right after. (Or ignoring any feedback anyway.)

    Ain't none of that going to happen with the skeleton devs we have.
