The HRV Blackout Mk.1 is a non-lethal gear available in Blacklight: Retribution.

Overview Edit

The HRV Blackout Mk.1 is a small, handheld device that renders a small area invisible to HRV. It can be thrown on a surface to stick, where it will stay until the player is dead or the device is shot. The device can be thrown and will stick to almost any surface in the game.

The HRV Blackout Mk.1 deploys a blue bubble, which will hide any amount of players, devices or mines from HRV detection as long as they stay within the bubble. It stays active for 5 minutes or 20 seconds after the death of the person who deployed it.

Tactics Edit

It is very useful for those wishing to cloak themselves from enemy HRV for any reason, often used by snipers to avoid attention. However, the bubble it produces is visible to the naked eye and HRV with a direct line of sight, which can alert enemies of someone or something inside.
