Hornet Strike increases the base damage of a pistol by 20% per rank for 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.
- The damage increase applies to DoT from the Acrid as well.
