The Temp V Field Upgrade: Vought International’s proprietary blend that is near-perfect for anyone wanting to be a Supe.
Near-perfect, of course. Upon consuming it, Temp V grants one of four random superpowers in your Field Upgrade slot, though it doesn’t act like a usual Field Upgrade. Once you use Temp V, you’re then free to activate this power whenever you wish… But if you’re eliminated from combat before activating the power, then like a normal Field Upgrade, it is lost upon death.
Also, all traditional Field Upgrades appear to dispel Temp V’s effects… Operator test subjects picking up a Munitions Box, Dead Silence, or any other Field Upgrade lost that power (or the Temp V shot).
Here are the four different superpowers that Temp V can result in:
Charge Jump – Operators who love fast movement techniques — or maybe remember a Haunting or two —know how much a Charge Jump propels them across the map in leaps and bounds. Just like Queen Maeve, an Operator doesn’t suffer any fall damage when they land from a Charge Jump; in fact they deal splash damage to anyone or anything within a short radius of the Operator’s landing spot.
Electric Shockwave – To put it simply, “electricity goes in, blast comes out.” This shockwave sends a powerful electrical explosion that injures Operators and AI Combatants, as well as destroys vehicles and equipment. Think of this as a super-EMP that – like the other abilities – can help turn the tide of teamfights.
Laser Vision: Upon activation, an Operator levitates and fires a laser beam that sears through enemy targets in whatever direction they are looking. It’s just like one of many powers that Homelander has, but it does leave the user open to backfire.
Teleport: Forget normal on-foot navigation throughout Vondel; Teleport warps an Operator upward, which is extremely helpful when trying to escape a fight or move to higher ground. And unlike when Hughie Campbell does it, your Operator Skin isn’t affected in any way – no lost clothing, in other words – whenever this happens.
As you might expect, Temp V is accessible all Warzone playlists, including DMZ, except Ranked Play. The very best Ranked Warzone players don’t need a Temp V injection and should heed Starlight’s advice on their road to Top 250:
“You don’t need powers. You just need to be human.” — Starlight, The Boys (Ep. 305)
Otherwise, expect Temp V to be a lot rarer in DMZ compared to Battle Royale modes.
