Offensive Powers are abilities mutated due to the Blacklight infection present within Alex Mercer and James Heller.[1] Each ability has its own purpose and can be adapted to a particular situation. However, Heller's abilities vary from those of Mercer.[2]

Blade Edit

The Blade is a powerful and deadly cutting and thrusting weapon, perfect for slicing and swiping through even the toughest armored vehicles or infected hives. This attack Power allows access to the second most powerful strikes available.[1]

Claws Edit

Main article: Claws

Claws are the most prominent anti-personnel ability. Biomass is shifted into 4-digited, talon-like appendages that can be used to shred flesh and bone, cutting both the infected and military in half with a single sweep in some cases.[1]

Hammerfist Edit

Main article: Hammerfists

Hammerfists are primarily an anti-vehicle power. By shifting large amounts of biomass towards the hands, large hammer-like weapons are formed that are excellent for crushing both vehicles and infantry.

Musclemass acts as a strength augmentation to Alex Mercer's arms. It greatly increases close combat damage and the distance debris can be thrown to deal with distant enemies.[1]

Whipfist Edit

The Whipfist is a thin, flexible, blade-edged arm that can be used to attack at extreme range, or whip through entire crowds of enemies. Tame your foes from a safe distance.[1][2]

TendrilsEdit

The Tendrils power is an ability evolved by James Heller that allowed him to grapple enemies with the viral biomass. Upgraded, this ability acts as a devastator.

Devastators Edit

Main article: Devastators

Devastators are powerful area attacks that utilize the critical mass, in order to inflict damage upon multiple targets. Most of the devastators are evolution of a few offensive powers.[1][2]
