  • Upon release, this mod displayed as dual-stat (damage and status chance), however, this was later stated to be an outdated tooltip.
  • Used to add puncture damage to a weapon based on the total base damage. Therefore, a weapon with very little puncture could be boosted heavily, such as the Fluctus Fluctus becoming puncture based.
    • It also used to add puncture damage to weapons without physical damage, like the Velocitus Velocitus.
    • This mod's damage is no longer based on total damage, instead modifying only the weapons puncture damage, if any.
  • Used to add DmgImpactSmall64 Impact damage instead of DmgPunctureSmall64 Puncture.[10]
