Head Equipment Mods[]

Head Equipment Mods are available for this power:


Clown Box encases you for 3 seconds, and shields you for 6.25 seconds. Detaunts enemies.
The player is completely impervious to all forms of damage during the several seconds in the clown box. This could be used when under heavy fire in group scenarios as a temporary tank. It may also be used to block any special attack the player doesn't know how to evade or is not confident in evading.

This is more effective in damaging ranged or "small" targets. Large melee opponents sometimes smash the clown box so hard that it is knocked far from them, avoiding damage.

Most opponents see the clown box as the player and continues to attack to no effect, while others will ignore it and target other players.


  • Clown Box used to be a non-Supercharge power that only deals damage when you emerge.
