        Explosive projectiles become subject to gravity and arc downwards. The explosion is useful for hitting enemies around corners and behind cover, but the arc makes it difficult to use against long range and airborne enemies.

        Removes automatic or burst fire capability, replacing it with semiautomatic fire and the ability to charge shots. Charging the weapon increases the damage and/or fires additional projectiles.

        Hidden -20% reduction to rate of fire, which is reflected in the crafted weapon's stats AFTER the weapon has been crafted.

        Combining with Ricochet augmentation or certain weapons (Falcon AR, Ushior Pistol) causes projectile to explode on each bounce. Can easily hit non-airborne enemies 2+ times by aiming at the ground ahead of them. Charged shots lose the explode-on-bounce property.

          Works Best with Falcon AR (Poor), Scorpion Pistol, Piranha Shotgun, Venom Shotgun, and Dhan Shotgun (Best).

            Don't put this on a sniper rifle. The bolts are not 'direct line'. They suffer from massive bullet drop and are similar to a grenade. Very hard to target anything at range.
