Shockwave is one of Cole's basic powers. It is an electric shockwave that is used to get things out of your way and to push enemies. It can be a weak attack or a deadly one depending on your rank, and costs one and one-third battery cores worth of power to use.
It is particularly useful for pushing enemies off of rooftops and throwing cars or other objects at enemies, as well as reflecting grenade and rocket attacks. It also serves as an excellent counter to the Mad Bombers.
Since Kessler was Cole's alternate timeline counterpart, he also possessed the ability. He could control the power of his shockwaves, being able to send Zeke flying, without really harming him, while injuring Cole by knocking him back a few feet.

Good Karma Edit
At the first upgrade (Guardian level), you can make enemies float in slow-motion with this attack. This attack was made to be combined with others in Hero rank as you can shoot at enemies with lightning bolts or toss shock grenades at them while they're floating. Further upgrading this attack will increase the blast force and range. It does almost no damage in and of itself.
Evil Karma Edit
When upgraded (Thug Rank) this will electrify enemies instead of making them float. It does moderate damage and is perfect for getting them off your back. Further upgrades will increase blast force and range and, at Infamous rank, will make objects the blast force touches, such as cars, explode.
Good upgrades can be considered more superior for stunts simply due to Reverse Magnetism and its various uses to "juggle" enemies in the air, a skill which is useful for performing the stunts Air Sticky Bomb or Flying Head Shock.
Evil upgrades have no real pros when stunts are considered, but the Infamous rank shockwave is by far the most fatal in terms of damage as it is worth noting that the shockwave can hit multiple cars.
Two Stunts are also connected with the Shockwave:
Right Back At Ya, where Cole has to push a thrown grenade back at the enemy and take said enemy down with said grenade, and Suspended Sentence, where Cole has to hit a flying/falling enemy with Lightning Storm. This effect will also work with the Champion-rank Megawatt Hammer.
- This power was originally to be called TK Blast in inFamous, and seems to have gained its original name in inFamous 2.
- This is the first power utilized by Cole that consumes energy from the Battery Cores.
- The shockwave was replaced by blast in Infamous 2.
