Assault Rifle Penetration
|Assault Rifle Penetration|
|Mass Effect 2|
Squad bonus +25% assault rifle damage against armor, shields, and biotic barriers. Upgrades the assault rifles, battle rifles, and machine guns for your entire squad.
The slugs's tungsten content is increased, and the weapon's computer is recalibrated, improving penetration of heavily-armored targets. A phasic envelope surrounds each slug before it is fired at a target; this disrupts any mass effect field protecting the target, resulting in better penetration.
