Rising Sh0t is a tier 3 skill in Zer0's Cunning skill tree. It allows each ranged or melee attack to give bonus damage for a short amount of time. This bonus can stack up to five times. Faster weapons gain stacks more quickly, but slower weapons retain stacks for a longer period of time.


  • Gun Damage per stack: +2% per level
  • Melee Damage per stack: +1.8% per level
Level 1 2 3 4 5
Gun +2%+4%+6%+8%+10%
Melee +1.8%+3.6%+5.4%+7.2%+9%
Level 6 7 8 9 10 11
Gun +12%+14%+16%+18%+20%+22%
Melee +10.8%+12.6%+14.4%+16.2%+18%+19.8%

Can only leveled past 5 with Survivor and Stalker class mods.


  • Some weapons, like the Skullmasher, will grant multiple stacks from a single trigger pull.
  • Stack depletion rate seems to depend entirely upon the fire rate of the equipped weapon, regardless of whether you use regular weapon attacks or melee attacks. As a result, weapons with slower rates of fire are more effective for maintaining Rising Sh0t stacks while using melee.
    • Also by using a weapon with a high rate of fire to get stacks quickly and then switching to a low rate of fire weapon and shooting an enemy causes stacks to deplete slower.
  • Reload times for most weapons tend to be long enough that you will lose all Rising Sh0t stacks during the process.
    • As a result, Bandit weapons are often particularly effective for maintaining stacks due to their large clips.
    • Minimizing reload times when using a weapon with a very slow rate of fire can allow you to maintain stacks during reloads as well; the Killer skill works especially well for this.
