When I use the Plamsa Cell ability, my ammo bar changes from yellow to orange. Later - while fighting, the ammo bar color switches back and forth between orange and yellow. What does it mean?

  • I'm standing around not fighting with Plasma Cell on - the ammo bar is yellow.
  • I turn off Plasma cell - still yellow.
  • I turn on Plasma cell, when the ability completes the bar turns orange.
  • 3 seconds later, back to yellow (plasma cell still is active).

does Plasma Cell trigger something that lasts for 3 seconde? maybe it shows you when this buff is over – Diskilla Dec 25 '11 at 4:43

This indeed indicates the ammo type you are using. It seems to be rather bugged at this time, often forgetting the colour after a short while and reverting back to the default.

It's so you can tell what cell you are using. I.e. plasma cell = orange ammo counter, combat support cell = green ammo counter. It lets you know what cell you have active without having to squint at your hotbars.

So - why does it change between orange and yellow while Plasma cell is active? – David B Dec 23 '11 at 19:10
I believe it's just so you can know what cell you are using - kind of like something in an aircraft HUD letting you know which missles you are using – SSumner Dec 23 '11 at 19:45
