I equipped the Messy Breakup shield, and realized that my Digi-Clone also had its own drone, despite not equipping the Distributed Denial or Double Barrel perks. This leads me to believe that the Digi-Clone passively gains your shield bonuses by default (if I am wrong, correct me). This got me thinking: Does your Digi-Clone obtain your passive artifact effects?
I wanted to give my clone the Face-Puncher shotgun, and a Knife Drain artifact, potentially allowing the clone to heal itself, improving its survivability. Maybe even a White Elephant so it can crit, as well, taking advantage of Brainfreeze. As I do not have these equipment, can somebody test this for me so I don’t waste my time farming if it does not work?
