Damping

By
Claire Farnworth

Damping is a tech talent available to Engineers, Infiltrators, the Turian Agent and the Quarian Machinist. It shuts down enemy tech and biotic abilities making it a useful skill when facing large groups of powerful enemies with biotics. Damping also increases the radius on proximity mines.
