History Edit

  • Has been renamed Smoke Screen.
  • Sunderer's Smoke Screen has been replaced with this ability.
  • Now emits smoke for 8 seconds at all ranks.
  • Cooldown from 30/25/20/15 seconds to 40/35/32/30 seconds.
  • Now immediately clears current spot markers for you and allied vehicles within 30 meters.
  • Now prevents lock-on attempts for 8 seconds for you and allied vehicles within 30 meters.
  • Now masks the vehicle's minimap auto-spot signature for you and allied vehicles within 30 meters.
  • Dev Note: Allowing IR Smoke to affect nearby vehicles increases its value in teamplay, and gives players additional incentive to choose an ability other than the current go-tos. It also allows for some niche strategies outside of teamplay, ie. disappearing behind cover and clearing your spot markers to help set up a flank or make an escape. The cooldown was increased to reduce spamability, while still remaining reasonably accessible.
