— In-game description

From the Shadows is an ultimate ability for Omen.


From the Shadows is a Mobility ability that Omen must equip before casting. Upon doing so, a display of the entire map will appear on Omen's screen. He can click on any part of the map to instantly begin teleporting to that location. This activation will also cause the minimaps of enemy agents to become obscured for the ability's duration.

After a brief windup time, Omen will arrive at his destination as a Shade for a short amount of time. As a Shade, Omen is rooted in place, though he can still rotate his body, his vision is mostly grayscale, and he is inflicted with a reduced vision radius. On immediate arrival his vision radius starts at zero but during his time as a Shade this will gradually increase, the rate of restoration getting quicker towards the end of the Shade's duration until the vision radius cap is completely removed.

Whilst he is a Shade, enemy agents can shoot a bullet at him to cancel the teleport, returning Omen to his original position when he activated the ability. Omen can cancel the teleport himself by re-casting the ability whilst he is a Shade.
