Inertia is a tier 3 skill in Maya's Motion skill tree. After killing an enemy you regenerate your shield and gain increased reload speed for a few seconds.


  • Shield Regeneration: +0.8% per level
  • Reload Speed: +10% per level
Level 1 2 3 4 5
Shield Regen +0.8%+1.6%+2.4%+3.2%+4.0%
Reload Speed +10%+20%+30%+40%+50%

There are no class mods that boost this skill beyond 5 levels.


  • A Roid Shield instantly loses its effect after a single kill and cannot be triggered again until Inertia wears off.
  • This ability improves the usefulness of Amp Shields, reducing delay between Amp Shots and possibly allowing another Amp Shot before the shield recharge delay is over.
  • It's detrimental to have any points invested in Inertia together with Fleet. With Inertia, any kill will instantly trigger shield regeneration, and immediately deactivate Fleet.
