Ice has unique effect on the soldier affected by it. It first affects the soldier who then starts glowing white. After few seconds, the soldier gets frozen in an ice rock and can't move nor shoot. Similar to other status effects, you can easily kill yourself with Elemental weapons with freezing ability, and even with the Pulse Rifle, if you fire below yourself, close to the ground where you are standing, or to the enemy who stands close to you.
If an enemy, squadmate, or the player is killed while frozen on the ice rock, they will Body-Pop. (break into pieces)
If a weapon fires projectiles with chance to affect enemies with ice, it is written "Chance to freeze enemies" below it. If it freezes enemies with every shot, it is written "Freezes enemies"
