The most interesting characteristic of the Destined is their ability to produce an obscuring "smoke" cloud without mechanical assistance. Preliminary study suggests Destined have internal sacs that excrete carbonate-rich compounds, which include a melanin-like pigment. When expelled into the air at will, internal acids trigger a gas evolution reaction and the pigment expands to cover the battlefield, cloaking other kett allies. While studies suggest it is not harmful, breathing the cloud for extended periods is not recommended.
Destined are armed with Hesh shoguns, high explosive (HE) grenades, and will melee attack when close.
Destined have shields, can cloak to deter visual detection, and can create smokescreens to obscure view of enemies.
- Units concealed by smokescreen including the Destined can still be hit by weapons or undirected skills that happen to connect.
- In a smokescreen patch, one of the ways to single out concealed enemies is by the telltale ripples in the air during movement.
- Destined HE grenades deal area damage that persists for a few seconds before dissipating. While moving the player character someplace else is easily done, deployed turrets can be destroyed with those.
