Enhanced Optics Damage Explained

Starting with the regular pistol’s damage, the Aimed Shot adds an additional eight times damage. The Enhanced Optics ability increases this additional damage by its leveled multiplier.

The formula: Aimed Shot Damage = Damage + (Damage * 8) + ( (Damage * 8) * (Enhanced Optics Multiplier) )

Here is a sample calculation of the minimum aimed shot damage, using the fully upgraded Stormbreaker Pistol (with a damage of 24):

With no Enhanced Optics: 24 + (24 * 8) = 216

With Level 1 Enhanced Optics (5% multiplier): 24 + (24 * 8) + (24 * 8) * 0.05 = 226

With Level 4 Enhanced Optics (20% multiplier): 24 + (24 * 8) + (24 * 8) * 0.2 = 254
