Issue Description:

Got a tier 3 “Pinpointing Target” blessing (+15% power based on charge attack of melee attack/special, stacks 3 times) on a Grenadier Gauntlet, but it does not deal any additional damage or stagger when fully charging the special grenade punch or melee attacks.

Steps to Reproduce:
[Please add the steps that can help our QA department in reproducing the issue. For example:]

  1. Get Gauntlets with Pinpoint Target
  2. Enter Meat Grinder
  3. Fully charge attacks and see that this blessing does literally nothing compared to Gauntlets without this blessing

Nuts still appears bugged as far as I can tell.

Bump. Blessing now works with melee hits and grenadier special BUT it only increases the first tick of damage from special, which is miniscule, and does not increase the power of the blast making this blessing uderwhelming.

Jeez wasn’t the whole point of the blessing to increase “special” damage? That includes the punch blast.

I assumed so, thinking it might be a decent blessing :clown_face:

Yeah it’s currently garbage because why would you be charging anything with GG for extra melee damage? This blessing really needs to affect the explosion part of the special attack to be worth a damn.

Side note but also relevant, fully charging the special seems to take forever. I don’t know if Pinpointing Targeting requires you to charge till auto release to get the full bonus but regardless the special charge time should probably be more in line with other heavy attacks.

I’m pretty sure all charging attack bonuses have a scale up to 50% bonus at 50% charge maxing at 100% at 100% charge. So yeah even if this did affect explosion damage you would have to use a very high blessing for it to be usable because the Grenade Gauntlet has a full-charge on special somewhere around 3 seconds, you can mag dump and be 1/4 into a reload by then.
