  • This mod can be acquired by attaining the rank of Genius under Cephalon Suda, or the rank of Partner under The Perrin Sequence, and spending ReputationBlackx6425,000 to purchase.


  • Sonic Fracture's armor reduction is affected by Ability Strength.
    • To completely remove a target's armor in a single cast, Ability Strength should be increased to 143% at minimum.
  • Duration of armor reduction is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Subsequent casts of Sonic Boom reset the duration of the armor reduction and will stack the armor reduction.
  • Overlapping successive casts will stack its armor reduction effect multiplicatively.
  • Affected enemies have a green aura around them identical to that displayed by Corrosive b Corrosive.


  • Some enemies, like Councilor Vay Hek, have no weaknesses under their armor, and therefore take more damage when still slightly armored; making it more advantageous to get just under 43% Ability Strength. A rank 4 Power Drift and a maxed Intensify can get one to 42.5%, and despite being listed in the armory as 43% will leave a small fraction of armor.
