  • Upon performing a mid-air attack while Aim Gliding after bullet jumping or double jumping., an infested projectile will be launched towards the player's target.
    • Jumping after falling off a ledge counts as a double jump, allowing you to launch a projectile with only a single, non-bullet jump jump.
    • One can bullet jump, launch a projectile, then perform a double jump and launch a second projectile before touching the ground.
  • The damage, critical chance, critical damage of the projectile is affected by the weapon's base stats and mods.
    • The damage is divided into two parts, one is the impact damage, and the other is the damage caused by the explosion.
    • Bonus critical chance on slide attack mods such as Mod TT 20pxMaiming Strike or Riven Mods do not affect the critical chance of the projectile.

  • The infested projectile will do self-damage, but will only apply Viral b Viral procs and elemental base damage from the Zaw's strike.
  • The infested projectile is inter-planar, being able to damage enemies regardless of whether it or the enemies are within the Rift plane. For the same reason, the projectile will still do self damage to Limbo regardless of whether he is inside the Rift.

  • The projectile will not be redirected by MagIcon272 Mag's Magnetize130xDark Magnetize ability.
