When activated, Heller is capable of sending a viral sonar pulse to isolate his target among a group. This power can be mutated to detect targets at large distances. As this ability evolves, Heller can see through his targets and detect if they were being watched.
Often the targets are at street level, so it's best for Heller to search from higher ground. This will make it easier to discern the position of the targets. The faster the pulse returns, the closer the the targets will be.
