  • At rank 1, the chance is 1% for automatics and 5% for non-automatics. At rank 2, this becomes 2% for automatics and 7% for non-automatics.
  • It can also Ricochet fire from friendly targets like settlers, so being in a settler's line of fire could prove detrimental to the settlers.
  • The enemy needs to either have a maximum of 100 HP or be at 40% or less of their maximum HP.[citation needed]
