  • This mod allows weapons to punch (penetrate) through targets and solid objects to the depth listed in meters.
  • Actual increments are at +0.35 per level, the numbers are rounded up, similar to the Mod TT 20pxDead Eye aura mod.
  • Can be combined with Mod TT 20pxShred for a maximum 3.3 Punch Through and +30% fire rate, or Mod TT 20pxPrimed Shred for a maximum 4.3 Punch Through and +55% fire rate. 
    • Although Shred is more efficient due to a lower cost, Metal Auger can be used where increasing the fire rate isn't a desired effect. 


  • Before Update 11.0, this mod used to provide Punch-through values of +0.1 per level.
  • An auger is a type of drill bit used to quickly bore through materials.
