INSTANTLY place a marker at Phoenix's location. While this ability is active, dying or allowing the timer to expire will end this ability and bring Phoenix back to this location with full health.
— In-game description

Run it Back is an ultimate ability for Phoenix.


Run it Back is a Sustain ability that Phoenix can instantly use. Upon doing so he will place a marker at his current location and his body will be outlined with flames.

If Phoenix would be killed during the ability's duration, or after the duration expires, Phoenix's body instead dissipates. He is then revived at the marker's location with full HP. Shields are not replenished. When reviving, Phoenix returns in the direction he was facing when he initially cast the ability. The respawn automatically reloads all of his weapons.


Note: Values that are not marked as confirmed (i.e. values not provided explicitly in game or from patch notes) are only estimates. Whilst they may not be the true value, they have been tested so that they should be very accurate. Hover over check marks to see sources for confirmed values.
