  • Contrary to how other burst skills scale with adrenaline, Combustive Shot is the only burst skill that increases its damage upon reaching 10 strikes of adrenaline (1 bar). Usually level 1 is 0-19 strikes, level 2 is 20-29 and level 3 is a full 30, but Combustive Shot has 4 different levels. The damage difference between 0-9 and 10-19 strikes is smaller than the others and the burn duration is unaffected by this completely and follows the usual 3 level buildup though.
