  • This mod can be acquired by attaining the rank of General under Steel Meridian, or the rank of Genius under Cephalon Suda, and spending ReputationLargeBlack25,000 to purchase.


  • At max rank, two charges are restored per kill.
    • Chance for additionally restored charges is not affected by Ability Strength.
    • Kills by Allies or Companions on primed enemies will replenish the null star particle count up to the cap.
  • Number of charges is capped at the number you would get from using Null Star, which is affected by Ability Duration.
  • Molecular Fission can produce a constant supply of null star particles over the duration of combat, providing a low effort addition to outgoing ability damage for as long as the player doesn't run out of active particles.
  • Neutron Star may be better suited for quickly replacing large numbers of null star particles than Molecular Fission, at the cost of momentary risk (after exploding the remaining particles the player will have zero damage reduction until the the ability is recast). This tends to be more useful for high-duration, low range, 90% damage reduction builds.
