        Don't forget the Machine Brand effect will change that damage value on the lvl 4. Do you have zero kills with it?

          Kills with the Shockwave don't count as weapon kills.
          In other words don't use it if you're trying to rack up the number of defeated enemies with your Machine Brand weapons.

          Also kills made by your partner don't count as well.
