This ability lets you unleash your full potential by overwhelming enemies with a relentless barrage of wind strikes, freezing them with an intense blast of icy energy, or igniting them with the devastating power of a flamethrower. To maximize the impact of these attacks, you must be near your targets. 

If used effectively, this new ability can allow you to quickly dispatch many unsuspecting Visitors with a powerful Charge Rush.

Ghostwire Tokyo Spider’s Thread: New Talismans

The Updraft talisman is useful for movement, as dropping one will summon a gust of wind that launches you toward the sky. This is useful for traversal and exploration but also can be useful during combat as an escape or to get the high ground. 

The Spirit Well talisman is more combat focused as it summons a pool that gradually restores your Ether while you are near it. This is useful for when you need that extra boost of ammo for your Etheral Weaving. 

And there you have it, all the new abilities, mechanics, and talismans added to Ghostwire Tokyo in the new Spider's Thread update.
