Abilities Tips
Arc Snare

A snared enemy still has a lot of room to dodge and weave within the radius. Since their movement will only be impaired if they try to escape, try to snare someone after they’ve taken some damage so you can finish them off.

Pair the snare with AoE attacks like grenades, Caustic’s Nox Gas Traps, Fuse’s Knuckle Cluster, etc.

Since it’s a very slow-moving and obvious projectile, it’s hard to hit at long range. Expect to use it more for area denial than actually trapping enemies from a distance.

Throw an arc snare at a doorway or corridor to block it for a few seconds, giving you a short time to heal.

Throw the snare at an enemy Horizon’s Gravity Lift or an Octane’s Launch Pad. It’ll effectively disable them for a few seconds (for one enemy, at least).
Marked for Death

You can help your teammate find loot by using the map-ping function to mark deathbox; this is especially helpful when the area is known to have intense firefights or in the last few rings.

Be cautious when marking attackers: Some enemies are good at tracing their previous location, and as such marking deathbox may ended up exposing your own position instead.
Phase BreachAny player who uses the portal will face in a predetermined direction. -> Use this to your advantage by immediately walking backwards after exiting your phase to take any enemies who follow you by surprise.

This ability can be used through open windows. Use this to escape a building, or to surprise enemies.

Voice Lines



Born in the Frontier, Dr. Ashleigh Reid learned early that the only person who was going to look out for her was herself. She became Horizon’s apprentice, and as part of “The Group” working on Project Iris, one of Pathfinder’s creators. Through her work, she comes to know Darion Che and Eduardo Silva when they are kids running around the Peck Labs. However, she was secretly working with the Apex Predators to take the Branthium, and had infiltrated and psychologically manipulated the researchers for years.

She departed with Horizon on a dangerous mission to prove the existence of Branthium. After successfully extracting the Branthium from a black hole, Reid betrayed Horizon and left her to die in the black hole.

After betraying the rest of the Group on December 25, 2658 and trying to take all the Branthium for herself, she was stabbed by her own sword by Amelie Paquette from behind. However, contrary to what is known, she is merely mortally wounded, and at her request was made into a simulacrum.
