A video showing the Glacier weapon type and some of its abilities.
Glaciers are rapid-fire, low damage Cold-elemental weapons that slightly slow down their target's Speed Counter gain. Their main purpose is to remove Competencies off of Symbiote Monsters, making them easier to deal with.
Competencies shown in the video include:
Cryo Loss - Lowers chance of expending Glacier ammo. Cubed - Enemies caught in a Glacier rapid-fire cannot move. Ice Shield - Enemies caught in a Glacier rapid-fire have their attack power cut in half. Ice Storm - The longer a Glacier rapid-fire goes on for, the more damage it deals. Deep Freeze - The longer a Glacier rapid-fire goes on for, the larger its area of effect becomes. Useful for debuffing grouped Symbiote Monsters with a single attack.
