A video showing the Hover Staff weapon type and some of its abilities.
Hover Staves are weak melee weapons, a new technology meant mainly for incapacitating Symbiote Monsters for arrest by law enforcement by applying a Hover Symbiote to them that has them hover in place for 5 seconds, without the ability to move.
Though weak on their own, a team of Hover Staff users can build up a lot of damage for the Hover Staff, as each Hover Staff attack launches an enemy higher and higher into the air, and the higher in the air an enemy is, the more damage the Hover Staff deals.
Competencies shown in the video include:
Air Pocket - Unlimited range, launches an enemy into the air at 3x the height of the user's Hover Staff attack and adds 10 seconds of hover time. Power Drive - Powerful Hover Staff attack that slams an enemy down to the ground. Deals exponential damage based on the enemy's height, and the higher the enemy is, the greater the output. However, this zeroes their aerial height and ends their hover time. Hover Craft - Each Hover Staff attack adds an additional 5 seconds of hover time per Hover Craft Competency.
