  • Top row describes the forward triple-stacked bullet; bottom row describes the side-fired flechettes (6 flechettes from each side).
  • Blade Wing's side-fired flechettes do not pierce through enemies. As well, they gain additional bursts based on a Threshold of 2.166...

Commentary

  • Blade Wing fires bullets in three different directions. As a result, it is only possible to hit with all bullets while inside a sufficiently large enemy.
  • Compared to Diamond Sniper (T10 Sniper), T10 Blade Wing has a 2-burst clip (compared to Diamond Sniper's 1-burst clip) and reloads ~33% faster; however, it has a much shorter range (~14% shorter than T10 Sniper's optimal-damage range) and can only deal one third of its optimal damage output in the forward direction.
    • Without upgrades, T10 Blade Wing's clip damage without flechettes is ~50% less than that of Diamond Sniper (~50% more with flechettes).
    • With maxed elemental damage upgrades, T10 Blade Wing's clip damage without flechettes is ~55% less than that of Diamond Sniper (~36% more with flechettes).
