    Default Sab Detonate Question

    Question: Can a sab charge someone up. Then use the combo points for another finisher and still have the charges on em so you could detonate em? Or, does detonate only blow the same number of charges that you have combo points?

    Yes you can. Popular combos include going into marksman. Blow your charges with anhiliation bomb (talented so it sets them off) them follow with a 5 pt deadeye.

    This is the only way I know of to do it.


    Using a finisher after building up 5 points with charges makes detonate unusable until you build up more points. However, you can just build one and do the full charge damage. You'll just miss out on detonate's damage.

    Make sure you have the demolition specialist for AB to not remove the charges and tadah u have 5 points to use a finisher (I prefer Deadeye shot myself)

    This answers my question. So you have to have at least 1 combo point to use detonate but it pops all the charges. Detonate by itself, without the charges to back it up, looks pretty weak in the damage department. I'm sure with it talented it would be better.

    I know demo specialist can do it. Guess I was more curious if you could use detonate with only charges on em and no combo points.

    P.S. Thanks for the quick replies.
