— In-game description


Stolen from:


The Defiance Break sums up the launch and the self-knockback: 232+150=382 instead of correctly using only the launch for 232 Defiance Break.
  • Damage is calculated using the Weapon Strength of your equipped weapon. (Wiki damage assumes the unequipped value.)
  • This skill behaves similarly to the Engineer skill Overcharged Shot.
