Flechette storm is an enhancement that can be put on any ranged projectile weapon. Flechette storm weapons are designed to cut through massed assaults of weaker enemies.
Upon reaching its target, a projectile fired by a flechette storm weapon splits into a hail of smaller projectiles that creates a cone originating from the target struck.
The cone faces away from the shooter and has a range of either 5 feet + 5 feet per point of base enhancement bonus, or the weapon's range increment, whichever is lower. The cone deals damage to those caught within it equal to the damage of the original attack, allowing a Reflex save for half damage. The flechette storm save DC is 10 + half the shooter's base attack bonus + twice the weapon's base enhancement bonus.
The damage from the flechette storm cone effect is piercing, even if the projectile the weapon uses is not. The flechette storm effect only happens when triggered within the first range increment of the weapon.
