pcIcon pc xboxoneIcon xboxone ps4Icon ps4 The perk does nothing in the current version of the game (v1.9).

  • The current condition to apply the critical damage is "hasKeyword DamageTypeEnergy [KYWD:0004A0CB]" which is never true as no weapon has the keyword. The proper keyword to determine a ranged energy weapon is dn_weap_EnergyGun [KYWD:0003E208].
  • There is a bug-fixing mod (game ver. 1.5, unofficial) that corrects this and numerous other defects.
