    valuable additions for clearing groups. Note that only one projectile per attack can contact any enemy at a time. While it is possible to cause the explosions to overlap on a single target from multiple projectiles careful targeting is required. Positioning an enemy in front of a wall or obstacle is one of the most reliable ways to make sure the areas overlap since Kinetic Blast can no long interact with the player or ally's Frost Walls, as of Version 2.4.0.
  • Piercing, Forking, and Chaining: Kinetic Blast will produce its 4 additional explosions for each enemy contacted by the projectile. This makes piercing, chaining, and forking useful mechanics to utilize for clearing large groups of enemies.
