Description? The maximum damage of Combust, Dismember and Fragmentation shot is increased by 20% weapon damage per rank, but enemies that move will only take 1.5X increased damage. (Update) Weapon 3

Lunging is an Invention perk that increases the base ability damage of Combust, Dismember, and Fragmentation shot at the cost of less movement damage. It can be created in weapon gizmos.

## Calculations

The base damage for the affected bleeds is given by:

Where values less than 100% ability damage are boosted to the minimum of 100%.
represents a random number chosen in the range .

From this, we can calculate the chance for the ability to perform its minimum possible damage:

The damage multiplier from lunging is added to the maximum ability damage and has no effect on the minimum hit. As such, for rank lunging, damage follows:

This formula also affects the chance to hit minimum damage:

Knowing this, we can also calculate the average hit :

Where
is the chance to hit minimum damage;

is the chance to not hit minimum damage;

The movement multiplier is added after all other calculations are done, so the average hit is simply multiplied by that number for analysis:

The movement multiplier is only present on Combust and Fragmentation Shot; Dismember does not deal any increased damage for a moving target, with or without this perk.
