Geneburst is a support power for Epsilon Headquarters available from their Pandora Hub once it is upgraded with the Geneplug add-on. It launches a mutation particle outburst that severely damages enemy infantry caught in its wake, with any infantry that gets killed by the Geneburst will be immediately mutated into Brutes loyal to the HQ's proselyte, often enough to wreak havoc in enemy formations who did not expect such a nasty surprise.
Geneburst will kill the following infantry at full health in one hit. Units marked by an asterisk (*) will survive once they are veteran.
- Field Medic
- Guardian GI *
- Siege Cadre *
- Navy SEAL *
- Sniper *
- Flak Trooper
- Mortar Quad *
- Crazy Ivan
- Desperate Driver
- Initiate *
- Epsilon Adept
- Epsilon Elite
