Disruption is a Charge Card that releases a wave of energy upon activation. This wave of energy disables blasters (including hero blasters), turrets, droids, and certain vehicle weapons by causing them to overheat prematurely. The disruption effect does not affect Star Card weapons, such as the Thermal Detonator or Scatter Gun.
Despite the disruption, players can quickly fight back if they successfully perform a Cooling Flush, though if they fail, they must wait until the weapon has fully cooled down manually.
The Stinger Pistol is the only blaster in the game that is immune to disruption, meaning that any player using it will be able to fight back with it without any problems. They will however still die and more than likely will fail to kill their enemy since it takes time for the effects to sink in.
A player who successfully uses Disruption on an opponent will gain an Overheat Bonus for every enemy overheated.
