Hornet Strike increases the base damage of secondary weapons by 20% per rank, at a maximum of 220% at rank 10.
- Note that Hornet Strike damage is applied before every other damage type. Therefore every other damage increasing mod is benefiting from Hornet Strike as well. A weapon with a base damage of 18 equipped with a rank 9 Hornet Strike mod (200%) would have a new base damage of 54 (18 + [18*200%]) = 54.
- This new base damage will be what is used to calculate elemental damages.
- After level 5, upgrading this mod would be quite costly, so it is suggested to upgrade other mods at this time due to better c/p.
- Maxing this mod requires approximately 432 Uncommon 5 Fusion Cores and 894k credits.
- Due to how it affects the base damage, this mod is necessary for all secondary weapons in order to use them optimally. Few mods can replace the effectiveness of this mod.
