Damage bonuses refer to weapon-specific damage multipliers which function independently of the standard power bonuses found on most armour components.

Damage bonuses are applied to a weapon's damage output after the power bonuses have been calculated. The calculations are as follows:

Total damage output = Weapon base damage x (1 + power bonuses) x (1 + damage bonus)

There are currently seven known damage bonuses applicable to various weapon classes.
