Biotic explosions are double effective against barriers and armor.
Tech bursts are double effective against shields.
Fire explosions are double effective against armor.
Cryo explosions are double effective against shields.

No one power combo is strongest. Some are just more useful depending on what you are fighting.


actually a warp shockwave explosion does the most damage out of every explosion on every target

You need to go down three more lines. He already beat you to it. Sort of.

However it seems only biotic combos have boosts for how much damage they do. Warp->Shockwave I think is the most powerful combo.

Best reference there is on the subject. Pretty useful for leveling up also to see how your characters powers can be best utilized.

he said no one power combo is strongest. warp shockwave BE is strongest. based on the context of what he said, it was pretty certain that he meant warp shockwavesl BEs are the strongest BE

That's why I put in "sort of". It's a disclaimer.

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

If it means anything Watermelon, we're both wrong.

Snap Freeze Evo 6 Tech Combo: increase the damage of tech combos by 100%
Warp Evo 2 Detonate: Increase the force, damage and impact radius of combo detonations by 50%

Snap Freeze -> Warp Cryo Explosion can get 150% increase in damage

care to explain? I personally haven't tested it, but if I am to believe the words in the descriptions Snap Freeze would increase the damage of tech combos it affects by 100% and Warp would increase the damage of any combo it is a part of by 50%.

Pretty sure Warp's evolution only increases BE damage, not Tech Burst/Fire Explosion/Cryo Explosion damage.

And the final evolution for Snap Freeze is broken. And its combos are always 100% stronger.
