Force Bubble is a mental mutation that allows the user to create a personal around themselves.
This mutation grants the "Force Bubble" activated ability, which when used, will create a forcefield in every tile adjacent to the player, forming a contiguous "bubble". These forcefields will move with the player as they move, with the player always remaining at the center.
The forcefields created by Force Bubble are solid obstacles with 100 HP, 100 AV, and -10 DV. While this means they are not indestructible, they are incredibly difficult to penetrate with conventional weaponry. Other creatures are unable to pass through the forcefields, unless they are phased or have an implanted . Additionally, enemies are unable to fire missile weapons and ranged mutations through the forcefields, while the player is able to.
If the player moves one of their forcefields into the same tile as a creature, that creature will be pushed in the direction of the player's motion. Creatures who are standing immediately adjacent to the player when Force Bubble is used will also be pushed away. This effect does not apply to non-creature objects, such as walls or items on the ground.
The forcefields will persist for a mutation level based number of rounds before disappearing. If the forcefields are affected by normality or are crossed by a creature wearing an , they will instantly collapse and disappear, releasing an electrical discharge into a random adjacent tile that deals 1d61-6 (Avg: 3.5) damage.
