Damage Analysis[edit | edit source]

The 40% damage boost from any type of bane ammunition applies only to the variable portion (the damage between the ability's minimum and maximum hit) of damage. Typically, abilities have ability damage ranges where the maximum hit is 5 times the minimum hit. For example, for an ability with a damage range of 20% to 100%, the damage boost will not apply to first 20% of ability damage, but will modify the additional damage over that. With the exception of auto attacks, this means that bane ammunition will always provide a total lower damage increase than displayed. In addition, it also provides +30% to the player's hit chance.

  2. ^ Due to the way the damage range of the second hit of Snap Shot is calculated, it does not receive the damage boost.
