OverviewEdit

Death From Above, along with Force Field, are the latest unlockable Super Powers. It allows the player to hang in the air and hit the ground, similar to Stomp, although unlike Stomp, the higher the player, the more damage Death From Above causes. It has the only "Nuke" upgrade, which allows to create a nuclear explosion, if the player is very high in the air.

TriviaEdit

  • It is based on the Thunder Drop ability from the inFAMOUS series, though unlike in the latter game, players actually get to control where they will land. Making Death From Above more accurate than Thunder Drop.
  • It is also a reference to a move of the same name featured in the Splinter Cell series.
  • It is one of the last passive powers unlocked in the game.
  • It was first mentioned in an earlier GameInformer issue referred to as "attacks similar to Infamous's thunder drop".[reference?]
  • Using "Nuke" upgrade will cause traffic to disappear for around 10 seconds.
  • Targeting on water will cause The Protagonist to fly through the water and respawn near Burns Hill Reactors.
