Snap Shot is a threshold Ranged ability. When activated, the player fires two shots in rapid succession. The first hit deals 100-120% weapon damage, and the second deals 100-210%, which is a maximum of 330% ability damage. Assuming both hits land, the player is guaranteed at least 200% weapon damage, averaging at 265% ability damage.
It is similar to the special attack of the magic shortbow, Snap-Shot.
