Details

Lúcio is able to ride along a wall's face until either the wall ends or he jumps off. He also is able to move vertically at an angle as this happens. After initiating the Wall Ride, as long as the jump button is held, Lúcio will remain wall riding. The only things that will affect the trajectory are adjusting Crossfade and releasing the jump button. While riding the wall, his movement speed is increased by 30%.

After releasing from a wall, Lúcio gains a slight burst of speed. He can immediately wall ride into another wall, but he cannot continue to wall ride any wall facing the same direction with the old one, including the original. Lúcio must land on the ground or Wall Ride on a wall facing a different direction to reset this. Curved surfaces is considered changing its direction gradually; it means that Lúcio can indefinitely ride "walls" like Ilios' well and Lijiang Tower's control center wall. Some small convexly curved surfaces, on the other hand, require Lúcio to change his direction if he wants to remain on the wall.

In the Game Options, Lúcio has an option that affects his Wall Ride:

  • Allow Backwards Wall Ride: When enabled, the player will be able to wall ride backward by holding the back and jump button.

Trivia

  • Hard-Light Skates are equipped with "blades" that are projections of hard light. This allows for quick movement across all surfaces.[1]
