In Armored Core: Nexus, when this part is active, the user AC now hovers straight in place while energy is being drained, instead of the previous incarnation from Armored Core 3 where the user AC would be bouncing around in a set altitude while energy is drained from every bounce. Note that if the AC activates its Boosters while the CR-E98HB is active, this will likely produce an extremely high level of heat. It is recommended to turn the CR-E98HB off first, then quickly activate the Booster to maintain an efficient altitude. The trick to mastering this part is likely energy drain management.
