      Just by looking at the numbers, does it not look like the formula should be x/12, if that holds true, you would get quite good values with:
      +0 : 2/12 = 0.166 (x)
      +1 : 3/12 = 0.250 (1.5x)
      +2 : 4/12 = 0.333 (2x)
      +3 : 5/12 = 0.416 (2.5x)
      +4 : 7.5/12 = 0.625 (3.75x)
      +5 : 10/12 = 0.833 (5x)
      +6 : 15/12 = 1.250 (7.5x)
      +7 : 20/12 = 1.666 (10x)
      +8 : 25/12 = 2.083 (12.5x)
      limit = +8 chip value

      No testing done, only looking at the numbers.
      Opinions?

        +0 = ~1/6 ( 16.7% ) attack damage
        +1 = ~1/4 ( 25.0% ) attack damage
        +2 = ~1/3 ( 33.4% ) attack damage
        +3 = ~2/5 ( 41.8% ) attack damage
        +4 = ~3/5 ( 62.6% ) attack damage
        +5 = ~5/6 ( 83.5% ) attack damage
        +6 = ~9/8 ( 112.7% ) attack damage

          The small bipeds at the desert zone housing complex drop a decent number of these if you got a good drop rate up chip equipped.

            Also 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.

              Decided to fight Father Servo Red Belt at lvl 26.
              It was a bad idea...
              During the fight I tested a lot of things In order to increase DPS.

              Shockwave:
              Scales off Weapon Attack;
              Can't crit;
              Isn't affected by Ranged Attack Up;
              Seems to miss when very close to the opponent.
