Screenshake is a mechanic where you can disrupt your targets aim by shaking their cockpit. Receiving screenshake will shake your crosshair, and field of view in proportion to the offending weapons Explosion Pressure, which disorients pilots and interrupts aim. Screenshake can be a minor annoyance at worst, and a devastating counter at its best. Many of the highest damage weapons are particularly vulnerable to being interrupted with screenshake, and a skilled pilot can utilize their screenshake weapon to potentially interrupt any weapon given their knowledge of recycle times, and eye for aim.

Notable Screenshake Weapons

  • Artillery: ArrowIV, Long Tom and Thumper Artillery have the highest explosion pressure, damage, range and splash radius of all screenshake options - however, it's hampered by a slow rate of fire, and are only mounted on specialty chassis focused on delivering artillery.
