Motion is Maya's first skill tree, of three. The Motion tree focuses on crowd control, defense-based skills and allowing her to brainwash enemies into fighting each other. Her other skill trees are Harmony and Cataclysm.

  • Ward - +5% Shield Capacity and -8% Shield Recharge Delay per level.
  • Accelerate - +3% Gun Damage and +4% Bullet Speed per level.

Tier 2[]

  • Suspension - Increases the duration of Phaselock by 0.5s per level.
  • Kinetic Reflection - Kill Skill. Killing an enemy causes you to deflect bullets against nearby enemies, reducing damage to you by 10% and dealing 20% damage per level for a short time.

Tier 3[]

  • Fleet - Your Movement Speed increases by 10% per level while your shields are depleted.
  • Inertia - Kill Skill. Killing an enemy regenerates 0.8% of your Shield per second and increases your Reload Speed by 10% per level for a short time.
