What a glorious feeling! – Fires flared, slow-arcing bullets, which split into three projectiles during travel. Enhanced fire rate and magazine size. Slightly increased critical hit damage.
Usage & Description
Due to the arching bullet pattern the Lead Storm's effective range is very limited, however, with its unique ability to split one projectile into three, it can literally engulf an area in bullets; hence its name. With the arching/splitting bullets one can pulverize targets behind cover or on elevated areas.
The difficulty of using this weapon can be partially negated by the use of Gaige's Close Enough skill, while still taking advantage of the ability to arc shots over obstacles; the combination allows a player to attack from the safety of full cover. However, the effects of Close Enough seem only to apply to the initial bullet; once it splits, the extra pellets do not appear to work with the skill.
As the split projectiles are not listed on the item card, each will receive full amp damage from amplify shields.
