Stats Breakdown[]

Unique Modifications[]

Unique Modifications
Icon Upgrade Heat
Volatile Bullets
Volatile Bullets causes each bullet fired out of the Subata, onto burning targets, to deal +50% more damage. Burning can be applied to targets from the CRSPR Flamethrower or other weapons capable of burning. The Flamethrower allows the Driller to have a synergistic pairing of weapons when taking this mod.
  • Damage: 50% Fire + 50% Heat (of the Kinetic damage caused by the bullet fired)

As such, it can extend the duration of the On Fire DoT.

Unique Overclocks[]

Unique Overclocks
Frame Overclock Clean
Icon Upgrade Ricoshet

Chain Hit

Chain Hit is a Clean Overclock that, after hitting a creature, gives the Subata 120 a 75% chance to ricochet, up to 10 meters, to the closest creature (non hostile creatures are ignored, excluding Huuli Hoarders).
Bullets do full damage before a ricochet.

Frame Overclock Unstable
Icon Overclock Special Magazine

Explosive Reload

Explosive Reload is an Unstable Overclock that causes bullets that have hit an enemy to explode on reload. The explosion does not have any AoE, only affecting the creature it explodes in.

  • Damage: 42 Internal (per bullet that damages the target ; damage is not affected by hitting Weakspots, Armor, or Freeze)
  • Bullets stay through automatic reload ("Born ready!") activation and can still be activated on next reload
  • A full reload is not necessary to activate Explosive Reload. It will trigger at the beginning of the animation. Canceling the reload, by switching weapon for example, will still activate the effect.
  • An indicator will appear on enemies that will die from using the reload explosion.

Mastery[]

Each modification that is purchased advances a mastery bar by one unit.

Mastery unlocks:

  • Three modifications – First Stripe Weapon Paintjob Icon Skin First Stripe
  • Seven modifications – Deepcore Weapon Paintjob Icon Skin Deepcore
  • All (12) modifications – The Company Special Weapon Paintjob Icon Skin The Company Special
