Upgrades your Dash to be usable in the air. Cooldown: 0.8s

Air Dash is a tech that allows the player to quickly dash forward while on the ground or in the air. It has an 0.8 second cooldown and is activated by double tapping in the direction the player wants to dash towards. It's equipped in the body tech slot inside the tech console or the tech lab of the outpost.

While activated characters are trailed by a white and blue blur. It's functionally the same as dash (0.15 seconds of propulsion at 50 base speed [base run speed is 14]), but can be used in the air. Air Dash is improved by Run Boost; this improvement is especially noticeable for air dashes, as the player retains much of the speed from an air dash after it ends.

Air dash is particularly useful for melee focused characters, having both defense and offensive advantages for traveling in and out of melee range.

To unlock Air Dash, players will first have to complete A Dashing Individual to unlock Dash. Air Dash then becomes an available upgrade at a Tech Console or the Tech Lab of the Outpost which costs 8 Tech Cards to unlock.
