Doubleshot grants a character a chance to do additional damage with their ranged or thrown weapon any time they make an attack. Doubleshot applies only to ranged and thrown attacks. (The similar mechanic for melee is Doublestrike.)

If your Doubleshot is greater than 100%, then a second shot is guaranteed, and the remainder is the chance at additional shots. For example:

  • If your Doubleshot chance is 100%, there's a 100% chance of doing double damage.
  • If your Doubleshot chance is 120%, you have a 20% chance of doing triple damage instead of double damage.

For shurikens specifically, Doubleshot does not apply to the additional shuriken thrown by the feats Shuriken Expertise or Ninja Spy Core Ability 2, Advanced Ninja Training. [confirm]

Doubleshot was introduced as part of the Update 19 combat changes. Many attack speed bonuses were converted to Doubleshot effects at that time.

Update 28 Patch 1 changes:

  • Manyshot and Ten Thousand Stars no longer reduce your doubleshot chance.
  • Repeating crossbows now have 1/3rd the chance for Doubleshot.
  • Doubleshot can now "wrap" and cause a third or fourth shot if it goes above 100%.

Update 45 changes:

Update 49 changes:

  • Prior to this change, Doublestrike gave you a chance to make multiple attacks. Now it gives you the chance to do extra damage with a single attack. (This change was made to reduce server lag.)
    • The exceptions to this rule are Repeating Crossbows and the Inquisitive Dual Crossbows style. They still fire 3 or 2 full projectiles (so you'll still see 3 numbers or 2 numbers, respectively). However, they still have Doubleshot penalties of 66% and 50%, respectively.
