Astra’s abilities are all about stars. These stars are small projectiles that can be thrown around the map which can be used to activate her different abilities. You could say this next agent is out of this world…

Activate a Star to form a Gravity Well. Players in the area are pulled towards the centre before exploding, making all players still trapped inside – Fragile

X — ASTRAL FORM/COSMIC DIVIDE

Activate to enter Astral Form. A stance in which you can place Stars with Primary Fire.

Stars can be reactivated later, transforming them into Nova Pulses, Nebulas, or Gravity Wells. When Cosmic Divide is charged, use Secondary Fire in Astral Form to begin aiming it, then switch into Primary Fire to select two locations. An Infinity Cosmic Divide connects the two points you’ve selected. Cosmic Divide blocks bullets and heavily dampens audio in the area.
