  • This is a Corrupted Mod, obtainable from Dragon Vaults in the Orokin Derelict.
  • This mod combined with Mod TT 20px.png Point Blank and Mod TT 20px.png Blaze give off a total damage increase of +240%.
    • With Mod TT 20px.png Primed Point Blank instead of Point Blank this adds up for a total damage increase of +315%.
  • In terms of crowd control, equipping this Mod with Mod TT 20px.png Hell's Chamber gives off impressive results, damaging a wide spread of enemies in every shot more effectively than shooting one target at a time.
  • Unlike Mod TT 20px.png Heavy Caliber, the rifle equivalent of this mod, Spread can be reduced by the Mod TT 20px.png Tainted Shell mod – though with a very high fire rate penalty, as cancelling out the spread increase from a maxed Vicious Spread would require a fire-rate reduction of at least 54%. This loss could be compensated for using a maxed-out Mod TT 20px.png Accelerated Blast or Rank 3 (or higher) Mod TT 20px.png Shotgun Spazz.
    • Alternatively, Mod TT 20px.png Narrow Barrel can reduce the accuracy penalty by half after hitting an enemy.
    • CrpSplitRifle.png Convectrix and InfestedLongGunTwo.png Phage are partially immune to spread penalty in their focused modes.
    • GrineerFlakCannon.png Drakgoon similarly remains highly accurate once charged.
