# Does the splash damage anoint work on the recursion

Does this work on the recursion is it better than the 100% damage ASE?

I donâ€™t know for sure, but I imagine it would as the recursion appears to get buffs from splash damage skills and secondaries. No clue if its better than the 100% damage on ASE annointment or not though

I didnâ€™t know Recursion dealt splash damage. I thought that anoint only rolled in guns that could deal splash damage.

Mathematically if it does work 125% is more than 100%.

I didnâ€™t think it did either, but saw another post on it, and decided to do a little testing and it does indeed appear to be buffed by splash damage.

That depends on how much of the damage is splash. If the gun does 100% damage as splash, then totally. If it does something like 50% as splash, then not necessarily.

Thanks for that.

After testing I see Recursion does 100% Splash damage. I guess all Maliwan guns do 100% splash damage even if the gun doesnâ€™t have a splash radius.

My Recursion has 2671 base radiation damage.

In TVHM mode with no modifiers other than guardian rank I deal 3038 damage to the test dummy.

Base damage = 2671
Guardian Rank = 13.74% Gun Damage
2671 x 1(1+.1374) = 3037.9954
Radiation does 100% damage to flesh

When I add 1 point to Fire in The Skag den for bonus 3% incendiary to splash I get an additional 140 damage as incendiary.

2671 x .03 = 80.13
80.13 x 1.75 = 140.2275
Incendiary damage does 175% damage to flesh in TVHM.

So to answer the question, it appears the Recursion would deal more damage with the 125% Splash damage bonus as it does 100% Splash damage.

Nice write-up but I donâ€™t think all maliwan guns do splash damage. I tested the mind-killer/tsunami and they donâ€™t do splash

Donâ€™t use Fire in the Skag Den to test. Use something like Amaraâ€™s skill, armâ€™s deal. Some stuff will proc Fire in the skag Den but wonâ€™t be boosted by splash damage, like beam grenades.

Has anyone seen the recursion spawn with the 160% splash damage anoint for moze?
