Covering Fire is an unlockable active Ability. It allows the Trooper to occasionally return fire before or after being fired at or having a teammate in the same situation, with no time cost. To do so, the owner needs to have a Weapon with appropriate Range and be in firing position (i.e. aiming). The target for covering fire is usually the enemy who has been shooting before the ability was activated.A handy pick for any trooper due to invaluable interruptions of aiming enemies, which essentially allows yours to avoid Damage or fire themselves before being hit and losing Aim.
