Reconfigure your body to the situation at hand. From Claws to Blades to Hammers to Whips, choose the right weapon for the situation. Change to a shield or armor for defense, or use advanced sensory powers (thermal vision, infected vision) to track your enemies Seamlessly and fluidly bound from building to building, run up walls, bounce off cars and everything in your path.
