Status Effect Effects How to Counter
Drain Heroes hit by attacks with Drain will have energy of their Herioc ability meters reduced. This is one of the more impactful Status Effects. It is best to try and avoid as much of these type of attacks and focus down enemeis who uses them.
Weaken Heroes hit by attacks with Weaken will have their attacks unable to put enemies into hit stun. When affected by this status effect, you will want to rely on your ranged attacks as melee attacks can be more risky.
Daze Heroes hit by attacks that Daze will have their visibilty obscured. This will make the screen blurry for the player. AOE (area of effect) attacks are your best bet with Dazed. They do not require much aiming when used.
Freeze When a Hero is hit enough times by attacks or environments that has a Freeze effect, they will be Frozen, inhibiting all movement and abilities. When you are Frozen, you will need to tap the prompted button as fast as you can.
Supress Heroes hit by attacks that cause Suppress will not be able to sprint, dodge, and vault. When you are Suppressed you will need to use your defensive abilities to decrease damage taken as you will not be able to avoid attacks.
