The Hover Pack is a late-game personal flight device that feeds on nearby power Connectors (on Power Poles and Buildings) and Railways. It allows pioneers to hover endlessly, as long as they are within range of a powered structure. Pioneers can use it to gain elevation and avoid fall damage.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Equipment[edit | edit source]

The Hover Pack must be used near a powered Power Pole, power connection point on a Building, or Railway, within 32 meters horizontally and 46 meters vertically (the shape is spheroid). The UI at the bottom left indicates whether the pioneer is in range, similar to a wireless strength indicator. As an additional indicator of available power, a blue energy beam effect will display while the Hover Pack is equipped any time the pioneer approaches an initial viable power source, or when transitioning from one power source to another, whether in flight or not. Moving out of range mid-flight simply causes the pioneer to fall. If the pioneer comes back into range while falling, hovering will automatically resume.

The Power Line does not count as a valid power source for the Hover Pack, so if Power Poles are constructed more than 64 meters apart, the mid-way between them may not be fly-able. The workaround is to fly slightly higher, so when the pioneer starts to fall mid-way, she will fall in range of the 2nd Power Pole and then resumes hovering.

While equipped, press and hold Jump Space to start flying, hold Jump Space to ascend, hold Crouch C to descend, and double-tap Crouch C to exit hover mode. Navigation is done using the Directional keys WASD. Sprinting ⇧ Shift is also possible.

The hover pack has a normal flight speed of 23.4 km/h, and a sprinting flight speed of 46.8 km/h, the latter of which is similar to sprinting with Blade Runners equipped.

Interaction[edit | edit source]

While hovering, the interaction range with buildings increases from melee to 21 meters.
