Piercing Shot is the lowest level Ranged ability at level 1. It deals 18.8-94% ability damage, or 37.6-188% ability damage if the target is stunned or bound. Its short, 3 second cooldown makes it useful to quickly gain adrenaline. The Melee and Magic equivalents of Piercing shot are Punish and Wrack, respectively.

Binding Shot or Tight Bindings deals a bind for 10 seconds, enough to boost the damage of three piercing shots. However, against stun-immune monsters such as bosses, Piercing Shot's bonus effect is of no use unless they are stunned with dreadnips.

The Energising perk will make Piercing Shot deal 20% less damage, but it will generate an additional 0.6% adrenaline per rank instead.
