When you perform any action in the game, it will consume Endurance and when you run out of Endurance, your gears will overheat preventing you from performing certain actions such as:

  • Attack
  • Jump
  • Dodge
  • Sprint

After Aegis gets exhausted, she will run out of Endurance putting her in a state of overheating which makes it similar to stamina in other games.

During this overheating state, you have the option of triggering Rapid Cool and this feature can be activated by pressing E on your keyboard.

This can be really helpful for turning the tides of the battle in your favour if you run out of Endurance.

However, you need to be careful as it is a double-edged sword where it inflicts frost damage and if you accumulate enough frost damage, you won’t be able to move around for a short duration.

You will be able to notice your Endurance gauge flashing red which means that Aegis is overheating do note that if you activate rapid cooling early then it will increase the length of the overheating stage.

Make sure to be patient and trigger it only when necessary in a timely manner so you can gain an upper hand over your enemies.
