Support Power Old version(s) Gallery Changelog

Shadow Ring is an Epsilon support power available from any plugins of the Pandora Hub, which makes friendly units in the target area cloaked for a period of time. It is especially useful to get the proselyte's troops safely through strong enemies – as long as there are no detectors in range.

Shadow Ring can also be useful to protect Infiltrators and Hijackers from enemy dogs and rogue Spooks, as they cannot see cloaked units.

AI behavior

The AI will use Shadow Ring at the center of their own base (near their Construction Yard), which is usually unreliable at times.


Act One

Use the Shadow Ring to temporarily hide the presence of your units with psychic illusions.

  • The Shadow Ring is first usable in the campaign in Human Shield. In this mission as well as in Moonlight (Casual difficulty only), Huehuecoyotl, Machinehead (Casual difficulty only), Blood Rage (Casual difficulty only), Survivors (except on Mental difficulty) and Backbitten (2nd player only) (does not apply to Survivors on Mental difficulty), Shadow Ring can be activated without the need of a Pandora Hub.
