Ultra Strikes Ultra Strike (US) are a type of Exotic Matter pulse weapon that cause blast damage more focused than the XMP Burster XMP Burster.

While they are listed as "very common," they do not drop as often as XMP Bursters XMP Burster. However, they have the same duplication rate as XMP Burster XMP Burster in a Quantum Capsule.

Initially Ultra Strikes Ultra Strike were only hackable on selected Motorola devices, however could be fired by any Agent that acquired them.


Ultra Strikes Ultra Strike are designed to destroy Portal Mods such as Portal Shields Portal Shield. They have a very limited range, and are best utilized when standing directly on top of the Portal itself. If the Portal's Resonators Resonator are placed at great distance, the use of an Ultra Strike Ultra Strike exactly on top of the Portal might not strike the Resonators Resonator, and hence will not generate a defence strike against the Agent nor a warning on COMM or via notification to the Agents that own nearby Resonators Resonator. Note that if Resonators Resonator of a different, nearby Portal are struck, that Portal will zap the Agent.

Pressing and holding the 'Fire'-button on the Scanner until the particle ring shrinks fully will deal up to an additional 20% damage, based on the radius of the ring when the Agent releases the 'Fire'-button. This is sometimes known as a "Glyph Attack", although it has nothing to do with Glyphs.
