  • The two 66.75-damage rows describe the weapon's close-range-bonus-damage effects for each spread.
  • None of the weapon's bullets are able to pierce through enemies.
  • The damage total listed in the simplified weapon stats is accurate for cases in which the player hits an enemy with exactly two visible bullets and one invisible bullet.

Commentary

  • Compared to Watchmaker's Shotgun (T10 Shotgun), T10 Twisted Backshot has somewhat improved accuracy (32° firing arc for forward shots and 16° firing arc for rearward shots versus 50° firing arc for T10 Shotgun) and can hit enemies behind the player; in exchange, it takes ~50% longer to reload, fires five visible bullets forward (rather than six) and lacks a point-blank damage bonus in either direction.
    • Without upgrades, a full volley of forward-fired visible bullets from T10 Twisted Backshot deals ~10% more damage than one from Watchmaker's Shotgun.
    • With maxed elemental upgrades, a full volley of forward-fired visible bullets from T10 Twisted Backshot deals ~2% less damage than one from Watchmaker's Shotgun.
    • Regardless of the state of one's upgrades, the forward-fired invisible bullet of T10 Twisted Backshot deals ~29% less damage than both invisible bullets combined of Watchmaker's Shotgun.
