  • The set of three triple-stacked bullets is distributed across a 20° firing arc with zero bullet offset.
  • Bullets have differing bullet speeds, but the same 0.22-second bullet lifetime, resulting in the apparent splitting of three triple-stacked bullets into nine component bullets.

Commentary

  • Compared to Diamond Sniper (T10 Sniper), T10 Ice Spear has about the same raw damage output (though it is 100% Ice rather than 75% Physical and 25% Ice), but has a much shorter range (from ~76% shorter on the fastest bullets to ~81% shorter on the slowest bullets) and fires a diverging pattern rather than an offset parallel pattern.
    • Without Ice damage upgrades, T10 Ice Spear deals ~3% less optimal burst damage compared to Diamond Sniper.
    • With maxed Ice damage upgrades, T10 Ice Spear deals ~28% more optimal burst damage compared to Diamond Sniper.
