I want to put split damage into various skills and weapons but I can only get only 1 element per attack. If you are familiar with Dark Souls or Bloodborne, you would know what I'm talking about. If not, then split damage is about splitting damage between 2 or more elements (Or at least that's how I know it).

In one of my skills, (A gun based skill) I want to have both Piercing and Slashing damage. The Piercing damage represents the bullets and the slashing damage represents the bayonet.

Anybody know how I could have both in the same skill/weapon? And if possible, can it be done to items?

(NOTE: I am still in the planning stage on my RPG)

It will take a script to pull it off, as the default engine uses one element only for damage.

Moved to Script Requests

Planning or not. Are you planning on using any battle system script?
My game uses two split damages, I call it as echo damage though. A character uses fire sword will yield 100% slash damage + 20% echo fire damage. If that is what you're looking for.

If you only have one skill that needs "split" damage, then there's no need for a script. Make a special element for your skill, and give all enemies weaknesses or resistances to that element based on the combination of their weak/resists to piercing and slashing.
