Koji’s Sparrow Bombs is a difficult groove to wrap your head around. It reads “Upon death, they deal 50% of Koji’s maximum damage to nearby enemies”.
Despite saying “Koji”, all Commanders have the same damage matrix/output. So we can pretend it means a generic Commander.
This effectively means it pretends a max health commander is attacking the enemy unit. It applies variance (+-5) then divides the result in half. This means the range of damage of sparrow bombs is quite tight.
Testing sparrow bomb results in custom maps has mostly resulted in only a range of 4. However, some units showed a range of 5. This indicates something strange is going on with rounding and I’m unsure exactly what.
Actual damage should be min damage + up to 4. However, it’s possible numbers are off by 1 due to unknown rounding factors.
