2.2 Coverage

Projectiles are spread randomly over a 270° circular area within a radius of 5 to 20 units around the initial target struck. AoE modifiers affect both the explosion area of individual projectiles as well as the area they spread.

2.3 Overlapping

It is possible for multiple projectiles to hit the same enemy, dealing overlapping damage. However the chance to hit the initial target is considerably reduced due to the deadzone around it.

2.4 Pierce, Fork, and Chain

Molten Burst projectiles cannot pierce, fork, or chain, since they are ground-targeted.
