Hyper Front Coldcast Gameplay Tips
Coldcast’s primary ability will make the opponent units slow like a snail once trapped inside. Using this ability can help the team to buy some time while rotating or retaking a site. The ice trap can also help the team stop or slow down enemy rush or rotation. Enemies slowed by the ice trap will be unable to walk fast or jump; as a result, they will be an easy target.
The ice barrier can be called Coldcast’s most pivotal ability. Players can use this barrier in different ways in different situations. The barrier can block the opponent’s field of vision and pathways to move around the map. Players can use it to block a site and plant the star core safely or hide after planting the star core.
Coldcast’s ultimate ability is excellent for taking map control and entering or retaking a site. With an incredible radius, the ice storm will force enemies out of a specific area or site. It can help the team to retake a site as the enemies will have to leave the storm to avoid getting frozen. Players can also use it to initiate an attack and clear a site to plant the star core safely.
