Blackout is a profiler ability that causes a blackout in the whole city. It can put Aiden into darkness, making enemies easier to assassinate. The blackout lasts for about twenty seconds before the effect wears off. While blackout is active, other hackable objects like the Mobile Phones will be disabled.
