Insta-knockback skill?

Hey Troopers!

I'm hoping one of you can tell me the name of your auto-knockback ability, or is it a talent ability?

The ability in question is an automatic knockback that occurs (I assume) when either a shield drops, or you're rooted, or something like that.

I know you get an activatable knockback, but that's not the one I'm talking about. My current character is a Marauder, and quite a few times I've Force Charged onto a Trooper only to be immediately knocked back before the charge animation even lands near them.

My hope is someone can/will identify this ability for me, so I can keep an eye out for it in the future. If I see it on a player, I can sneak up and attack instead of Force Charging, so I don't waste that Charge

Thanks!

Its called concussion charge, or something like that. I forget. Its the only thing we have going for us in PvP, I'm afraid, as you *********** are constantly rooting us in spot and killing us poor troopers, haha.

Concussion charge isn't automatic though, it is activated.

Yeah, the one I'm talking about is definitely automatic. It's virtually insta-cast, goes off far too quickly after I Force Charge. I bounce back mid-leap, don't even have time to land.

I know Sorcerers get a stun on bubble pop, perhaps Troopers get something similar?

There is no such automatic Commando ability. We have 2 knockbacks. Concusion charge and Stockstrike has a knockback that you have to spec for. Neither of which is automatic. Don't know about Vanguards though, but I seriously doubt they have anthing either, as they want you up close. I don't know what you are could be referring too, but I wish I did, would love to see some melee classes get off my back when mine knockbacks are on cooldown.

Vanguards have no knockbacks. Commandos get two knockbacks, one of which is via skills. Neither are automatic, you've just charged commandos with quick fingers.

There is no automatic instant knockback.

Marauders have a serious disadvantage if they force charge to open a fight against a gunnery commando. First thing I do is use concussion charge to get range, after that it's alternating between pure damage attacks, the slow from FA, the little kb from stockstrike. With no force charge ready their DPS is almost nothing for half the fight if they insist on running back at me.

I think he was talking about Commando's. They relatively have only knock backs from what I know.
