  • Regarding Engineer skills:
    • Hip Shot and Jump Shot both create the unique firing sound effect.
    • Only projectiles from Hip Shot and Throw Junk are unique. All other skills animate identical to when any other rifle is in use.
    • Grenade Barrage with the Grenadier trait fires glowing red projectiles with a new sound effect and displays its effect regardless of whether The Predator is currently equipped. This effect will occur even if a kit is currently active.
    • Throw Junk of the engineer downed skills, throws out a glowing red projectile.
    • Packaged Antitoxin throws out a glowing red projectile.
    • Static Discharge will oftentimes produce the unique projectile effect in place of the lightning bolt.
