Video example of elemental DoTs resetting the class mod’s effect.
Link to the example only.
This is only one of the things that reset it. Grenades, Melee, and other sources of damage can also cause this and turn a class mod with nice potential into just a very bad one for most weapons. You can still use it effectively with elements if you stack the damage on the first Fade shots and then switch to a high-powered gun for the last shot/seconds for a very big amped shot, but that’s about it for usage and it fits mostly for bossing. Any different usage is overshadowed by other coms.
This means that, to use this class mod right now, you’d have to lock yourself to Kinetic and Cryo damage types, while also avoiding the other things that reset the effect. This obviously feels underwhelming.
