How to interrupt skills and abilities in Outriders
To prevent bosses and alter enemies from using his skill you need to interrupt him. A filling Casting Bar (orange bar) shows that an enemy is concentrating to use their ability. You can hit a casting enemy with your interrupt keyword skill to stop them.
You cannot interrupt an enemy by just shooting them with a lot of bullets, instead, you need to use a specific interrupt keyword skill of your own. The keyword will be listed in your menu’s skills tab
Example: While Gauss is concentrating to use his ability. You as a Trickster class can interrupt him using the “Temporal Blade” skill. This will interrupt and temporarily paralyzed him. This is display by his skeleton becoming visible and then his movement greatly slowing down
