Like burst or whatever on that maid-bot near the beginning of the game (her name escapes me right now). I assume direct since they 'go through' characters and look like they have the direct symbol next to them but I wanted to make sure (I hope direct since that's what i've been raising on her...).

Just look at that symbol next to the attack. If it shows a fist, even if the attack uses a gun or shoots some form of energy, then that attack is Direct. If it shows a parabolic red arrow coming off a much smaller fist then that attack is Ranged. This also matters because Direct attacks lose damage as they travel through enemies.

They should have come up with better names for the types of attacks. Direct and Ranged is misleading.

Setting aside the names, it makes sense, though. You can't shoot a gun through 3 people and expect them all to be as hurt as the guy who takes the initial hit.
