South Park Fractured But Whole Assassin Class Abilities & Ultimate

The Assassin class in Fractured But Whole, as the name implies, focuses mainly on dealing damage to enemies. Of course, that’s not the only thing that the class has to offer. Several abilities, including the Ultimate, deal the additional Bleeding effect to your foes. Also, some attacks (again, including the Ultimate) turn you invisible. That’s about as assassin as it gets.

So, which abilities and attacks will you have at your disposal as an Assassin in Fractured But Whole? The first ability is Quick Cut. It targets a sensitive spot, and inflicts the Bleeding effect on the enemy it hits. The effect will slowly drain the enemy’s health for as long as it lasts. Next up, we have the Shadow Swap, which reaches one tile all around you. When you use it, you’ll drop a bunch of bombs on the enemy, swap places with them, and turn invisible. The third ability is Spin Slash. It reaches all tiles to the left, right, up, and down of your character, and can hit multiple enemies. It also inflicts Bleeding on every enemy it hits.

Last, but certainly not least, is the Ultimate attack. It’s called Deadly Dive, and it’s reaches across the whole battlefield. You’ll theatrically teleport to the top of South Park City Hall. You’ll draw a bloodied knife, then do an elegant spinning dive back into the enemy. It deals massive damage. As if that wasn’t enough, it also inflicts the Bleeding effect, and turns you invisible.
