The Abilities on a weapon are special features the player can activate during gameplay. Abilities provide the user with special tools to help achieve certain objectives.
Each ability has a corresponding icon which appear at the bottom of the screen during gameplay. When tapped, some abilities require the player to shoot their weapon while other abilities start to affect the scene immediately. Regardless of the type of ability, once it has been used, the ability will enter a "cooldown" state where the player must wait before the ability can be used again.
