  • This mod is significantly more powerful when stacking a maxed Metal Auger, increasing overall punch-through up to 3.3.
  • Despite the buff of Metal Auger, as of Update 11.0, the Shred is still efficient due to +0.4 punch-through bares merely a 7 mod power use, while giving +10% rate of fire.
  • The fire rate boost increases charging speed of chargeable weapons and the drawing speed of Bow class weapons.
    • Bows receive double the fire rate increase from this mod unlike other primary weapons.
