When suppression fire is paired with a weapon with continuous fire, such as the omega autocarbine, it creates a paralysis effect on the target. This paralysis effect makes it impossible for the target to turn to face the attacker while under fire from the ability in addition to the intended run speed reduction.
Players are capable of jumping and firing at the same time. When paired with cover, this allows a player to hide behind cover while briefly jumping up to fire on targets with relative impunity. Jumping and firing a weapon at the same time also allows catian players to jump over a player's head while firing their weapon. Such attacks can receive a flanking bonus. If performed by a tactical catian with a pulsewave assault weapon, the flanking attack can result in a one or two hit kill with minimal risk to the attacker.
