What is Brain Crush

One-Hit Psionic Ability

Scarlet Nexus - What is Brain Crush
Brain Crush is a type of attack that can eliminate enemies in one hit. These types of attacks can be initiated once the enemy's Crush Gauge has been depleted, and the Brain Crush prompt flashes above enemies.

Executing this maneuver will cause the use of your character's Psionics, pulling apart the glowing "brains" of enemies, effectively defeating them in one action.
