Adaptive Munitions is a Trait Weapon Perk.


  • This perk causes the weapon to deal increasingly higher damage with each hit to non-matching elemental energy shields. For example, a text-center Solar weapon with this perk hitting a text-center Void shield will gradually deal more damage with each hit. Hitting non-matching or unshielded enemies will remove the damage bonus.[1]
  • This perk can be helpful in activities where the Match Game modifier is active.
  • The perk also triggers when hitting text-center Barrier Champions's shields.[1] However, the player must also have an appropriate anti-Barrier mod from the Seasonal Artifact equipped (e.g. Anti-Barrier Scout Rifle Icon.png Anti-Barrier Scout Rifle when using a Scout Rifle) in order for the weapon to deal damage to the Champion's shield.
