Notes[edit | edit source]

Rank 4A is incorrect and is not a 25% decrease but a 20% decrease. For a detailed investigation of weapon weight mechanics, see Weapon Weight Strategy.

Ranks 1, 2, & 3 do not increase by +2%/+5% for each point invested.

The base values listed in the table above are the starting values with no points spent on any combat skill. This is a cumulative value that increases with each point spent on a combat skill. It takes 252 points to fully fill the combat skill tree. Any points spent in combat skills - active (Active Generic Skill Icon.png) or passive (Passive Generic Skill Icon.png) - will increase the value.

The maximum values available for spending all 252 points are listed below:

  • Rank 1 +40% Shotgun Damage, +40% Shotgun Force
  • Rank 2 +40% Shotgun Stability
  • Rank 3 +40% Shotgun Accuracy

The maximum values listed are with no points spent on any other tech skills or biotic skills. A full set of Rank I Initiative Armor with no augmentations or fusion mods was worn to ensure that there is no influence by the armor.
