Since fortification is under combat powers, if I pick power synergy which gives 20% power damage, will it buff ammo powers like incendiary or disruptor?

I never noticed an effect on ammo powers, but it seems possible. – Dustin Aug 2 '12 at 3:13

Actually, I just recently saw that with James' Incendiary Ammo, for instance, selecting the Fortification "Power Synergy" upgrade increased the damage associated with his incendiary ammo - so long as fortification was active of course.

I would say no, because the ammo powers are classed / refered to (on the Mass Effect wiki) as just that - Ammo Powers. However this is something Ill gladly try and test at some point.

This is something thats worth looking into.

No, as far as I know it doesn't buff any passive effects you get from equipment. It only improves most damage values from "spells" (i.e. biotic damage and tech damage).
