To activate Energy Dash double tap 'A' or 'D'
Energy Dash is particularly useful for melee focused characters, having both defense and offensive advantages for traveling in and out of melee range.
Dashing in midair resets your momentum, so it can be used to negate fall damage.
If you jump high before you use Energy Dash, it will allow you to explore and travel the planet much quicker.
The Energy Dash blueprint can be found in a dungeon chest of Apex Laboratories.
