At 3rd level and every 4 levels thereafter, you learn a trick called a gear boost that make you better with a particular type of weapon or armor. Choose from the gear boosts listed below.

Swarm Shooter (Ex; 3rd Level)

Source Tech Revolution pg. 33
When you use a weapon that deals damage to multiple targets, it deals additional damage to creatures with the swarm defenses special ability as though the weapon affected all creatures in its area. When you use a ranged weapon that would normally affect only a single target against a creature with the swarm defenses ability, you can deal half damage to the target instead of no damage.
