Lateral Thrusters

The Lateral Thrusters are a new item introduced in the Bloodfall DLC. They are jet boots the player uses to 'fly' around, allowing quick dodges and a third, mid-air jump. It is a multiplayer-only equipment item.


In multiplayer, the lateral thrusters can be used in many ways, chiefly for reaching areas that can't be cleared with a double jump or to correct a mistimed jump and grab a ledge. Players using the thrusters can also confuse their opponents with a sudden flight and follow up with a killing blow from above or escaping the fight entirely to restock and replenish health.
