Anticipation's duration and cooldown are halved.
Release date 25 January 2016 (Update)
Gizmo type Armour
Maximum rank 1

Reflexes is an Invention perk that halves Anticipation's cooldown and duration. It can be created in armour gizmos.

With rank 3, Anticipation's cooldown is lowered by 12 seconds while its duration is lowered by 5.4, decreasing its uptime from 42.5% to 40%. If used carefully right before the player is about to be stunned, this can allow them to prevent more stuns more frequently without having to rely on Freedom.

Although there is a net loss in the overall time Anticipation can be active, its decreased cooldown means it can be activated more often when a player may need Anticipation's effects for brief periods, such as phase 3 of Araxxor, during which his special attacks are used more frequently than in previous phases.
