Notes[]

  • When the buff times out, one stack is lost and the buff duration resets.
  • Ammo Maximum has no effect on battery weapons, such as Cycron.png Cycron or Kitguns equipped with PaxCharge.png Pax Charge. The reload bonus however, will reduce recharge delay.

Tips[]

  • Useful on weapons that can already kill groups of enemies quickly, such as most explosive weapons or weapons that chain between targets. Less useful on slow firing weapons that rely on status effects to kill their targets like single shot rifles.
