Tips and Details

  • The shockwave generates multiple slashes in a wide rectangular area in front and a bit behind the caster per target hit. Tightly grouped enemies will receive more damage.
    • The slashes appear in numerous areas, so pushed or larger enemies will naturally receive more hits as the shockwave passes by.
    • The shockwave doesn't deal damage itself and is merely a visual effect to signify where the skill's hitbox currently is.
    • If used at point-blank on a human-sized enemy, it may miss several hits as the shockwave travels forwards. Alternatively, due to the shockwave starting a fair distance behind Raven's landing location, targets further away will not take hits till the shockwave catches up.
  • You cannot attack after using this skill in midair until you reach solid ground.
    • Targets that are hit in midair will be completely immobile and locked in the same position until the skill stops hitting them.
  • This skill can be transferred to the next stage by using it just before a stage transition. It can also be stored multiple times when stepping on a jump pad, assuming a strict timing and not letting it get unleashed by jumping or moving back and forth.
  • It provides a large amount of freeze frames and you can move very early after casting, making it extremely advantageous in PvP.


  • The miniboss Stealthy Morfos uses a weaker variant of Hypersonic Stab's original pre-09/30/2021 incarnation.

Old Version

Video Description
Between its initial release and the 09/30/2021 KR Patch, Hypersonic Stab used to comprise of a single dashing slash that generated up to 2 hits (10 in awakening) and visually appeared much like the current [Mod] version instead of generating a slow shockwave that causes multiple slashes.
