Can someone please explain to me what ballistic damage means in Horde/Escape? Lol
Maybe someone has a list of the weapons that give off Ballistic damage?
There is no indication on which weapons actually give “ballistic damage” so I am not using the cards in PvE. However, I am worried the cards are too good to pass up for people that know what this means hahah.
Incorrect about heavy weapons, the trishot and mulcher are very much ballistic weapons. Any weapon that shoots an actual bullet is ballistic. The only one that doesn’t count is the Embar. Every other bullet shooting gun is ballistic damage.
As far as I can tell, Wakaatu acid attacks don’t get reflected at all regardless of whether you have Heavy Shell. I tried.
Snatcher quills don’t reflect, at least I’ve never seen them be. Matriarch spikes can be reflected but don’t appear to deal any damage when they hit it. Swarmak rockets seem to require Heavy Shell, though they have a mind of their own with where they fly and it’s hard to tell the damage they deal when they hit it as they may also blow a blister.
Kestrel rockets require Heavy Shell to reflect them back at it. Stump shots just reflect back regardless of whether you have Heavy Shell or not.
Melee attacks are inconsistent. Getting meleed by a Drone or Elite will down and bleed it out(if you have Reflect Shredder) when they hit you while Reflective Shell is up, but Wardens, Juvies and Rejects to name a few won’t take bleed(or any?) damage from hitting you while the ult is running… the only time they seem to get bleed is if stray reflected bullets hit them from other enemies shooting at you, at least in my experience.
And yes, Pouncer quills also require Heavy Shell to reflect back at them.
Buzzkills and Salvos(which are the weapon a Sentinel uses, also) need Heavy Shell to reflect them back. Pretty much any other explosive including Kestrel rockets also requires Heavy Shell too. And yes, rockets require a direct hit to reflect.
Wakaatu attacks don’t seem to reflect regardless of what skills you use.
