If you have a weapon which has both a Repeater and a Stock attached to it. Is there any chance that a missed shot will trigger the Repeater?

My assumption is that it will not as the actual shot did not hit, and the Repeater requires a hit in order to trigger, but it's a guess.

Reference: Weapon upgrades

  • It has never triggered on a missed shot for me. Afaik it can trigger if you miss a shot, then hit the second shot with an ability such as rapid fire though.

    Doesn't relate directly to your question, but this reminds me of something I figured out the other day: the Stock doesn't work on Rapid Fire.

  • Repeater does trigger on poison and burning damage, so it should with stock?

After some investigation, it seems Repeater only works on successful shots but if you have Stock then that damage can trigger Repeater bonus and execute the enemy.

  • Can confirm - you can see it happen because the shot will animate completely missing, and then alien falls over dead. Stock/Repeater is a great combo.

It used to be possible for Stock+Repeater to trigger a "One-Miss Kill".

However the Alien Hunters patch (May 2016) has removed this possibility. So if your XCOM2 is auto-updating, this is no longer possible.
