  • Essential for psionic character builds as the first weapon. Also good for taking down Security Cameras and Annelid eggs.
  • Little value to non-psionic character builds, as this is one of the weakest ranged attacks.
    • However, a ranged attack with no kickback and no chance of the weapon jamming is always handy, regardless of its weakness. This is particularly true if you are running short of ammo for your other weapons.
  • It doesn't have any splash damage, but it has a move splash for items and thus can be used very effectively to move items, causing the Psi Pull to be less useful in a few situations.


  • The genetically engineered Blue Monkeys aboard the Von Braun are also capable of projecting Cryokinetic blasts. However, their Cryokinetic attack DOES have a splash damage radius, so watch out!
