NotesEdit

  • In comparison to Serration, Heavy Caliber costs two more mod power for the same damage buff despite the accuracy reduction.
  • Instead of reducing the accuracy by 5% per rank, each rank increases spread by a specific percent per rank depending on the weapon. This effectively reduces accuracy, but may reduce it by greater than 5% per rank (according to the Arsenal UI).
  • Damage increase of Heavy Caliber stacks additively with that of Serration. With Serration and Heavy Caliber both maxed, you can reach +330% base damage in total, before adding Elemental and Faction based damage mods.
    • Since the two stack additively, combining the two can be cost ineffective when weighed against mod point drain. Adding a maxed Heavy Caliber onto a maxed Serration yields only an additional 62% to your base shot damage. This is because the relative increase from 265% damage to 430% damage is not as significant as the increase from 100% to 265%.
    • However, this is still a base damage increase, so elemental mods multiply with, rather than add to, Heavy Caliber's effect.
  • Accuracy will suffer on weapons without 100% accuracy, affecting the actual bullet path. This makes even accurate guns like the Soma spread bullets considerably at maximum rank.
  • Not recommended for the Miter as the projectiles will fly very far from the reticle. Strangely this does not apply for the Panthera despite the similarities between the two.
    • Also not recommended for sniping play style because if this mod maxed, you can always miss about 2 shots per aim, except with Ivara Navigator ability.
  • Currently, the only mod that can reduce Heavy Caliber's negative effects is Guided Ordinance, and only when you successfully hit an enemy.
