The full extent of Bloodstripes abilities have yet to be revealed. What is known is he is able to physically adapt to overcome any given situation as needed to accomplish his mission.
The 8 years of elite tactical military training he received as a Force Recon Marine have been magnified beyond the scope of human understanding. He can see and exploit weaknesses in his enemies and create the most efficient weapons to deal with any tactical situation.

His power the tactical Edge ( Blood-stripe ) imbues him with the knowledge of every warrior past and present and acts a danger sense, allowing him to forsee and account for countless tactical variables during combat, so when he is fighting it's almost like he already knows the outcome and how to get to the best result.
