An abyssal burst weapon functions as an abyssal weapon that explodes with shadow upon striking a successful critical hit. The shadow does not harm the wielder. In addition to the extra shadow damage from the abyssal special ability, an abyssal burst weapon deals an extra 1d10 points of shadow damage on a successful critical hit. If the weapon’s critical modifier is x3, add an extra 2d10 points of shadow damage instead, and if the modifier is x4, add an extra 3d10 points. Even if the abyssal ability is not active, the weapon still deals its extra shadow damage on a successful critical hit.
