Untamable, Black Lotus wins fast and leaves no time for the pitstop, or reaction, for that matter.
Nobody knows where the hell Black Lotus came from, but his/her racing experience is evident: the weapons are focused on evading opponents
and driving really, REALLY fast. In addition to radically increasing mobility, the weapons allow dodging from enemy shots and, if used
competently (which is difficult and requires practice), can also cause a hefty amount of damage.
Astral Projection, Black Lotus' registered trademark on the arena, shoots a astral copy of itself that reduces weapon’s 2 recharge upon hitting the enemies and it will cause them damage. This maneuver is used all the time and makes Lotus an incredibly fast machine and quite difficult to get caught up or hit by abilities. There's also a great destructive potential when properly aimed.
The weapon 2 is the Karma. It makes Black Lotus invulnerable, blocking the damage and dealing back to the enemy. The Karma is the perfect ability not just for defending the enemies' specials, but also to pulverize them with their own damage and to open the gap between those who hit you, because it makes the opponent move at a much slower pace and improves the conditions to deliver the bomb. Always when you get hit with this skill activated, its cooldown reduces.
This car has some impressive speed! That’s why the Soul Pilgrim activates a quick boost forward. The weapon has three charges to burn. Every time you use one, you don’t necessarily need to use them all -- they start recharging immediately.
After all the stages, finally the special one: Nirvana. This weapon is Black Lotus apex’ which recharges all weapons upon activation. It also reduces cooldowns and accelerates the machine throughout its duration.
