"Loads a special ammo which causes the Dreadnaught's shots to become explosive, dealing AOE damage on impact."

Explosive Rounds is an Accord Dreadnaught ability, although it can be equipped on any Dreadnaught battleframe. Using the skill causes all rounds fired for a short duration to deal extra damage and have a small splash radius. The ability also changes the damage type of the Dreadnought's weapon to Explosive.

Prefixes & Modules

Explosive Rounds can come with the Barrage, Blitz, Charged, Cooled, Disruption, Enduring, Lasting, Potent, and Widened Prefix as well as the Custom prefix.

Modules that modify Recharge, AoE, Potency, and Duration can be used.

Modding Considerations

Explosive Rounds will change the damage type of the Dreadnought's weapon. This means that perks such as Ballistics Expert will not buff the Dreadnought's damage while this ability is active.
