What good is 28+ Shield Penetration?


#1

Simple question - perhaps a simple answer, I have one guess.

Why does any weapon module have a shield penetration value greater than 28 when the highest shield resist is 27? Does damage to the weapon module erode its penetration value?


#2

There’s no difference once you’re over the value.

Presumably the stat range is there to allow leeway for future changes.


#3

Thanks. Do you know what is degraded when a weapon module takes damage? I’ve seen weapon damage and fire interval mentioned - is that it?


#4

Weapons visibly get severe cuts in reload rate with accumulated damage. Anything else would just be conjecture on my part.
