The position is determined on fire and does not change nor track the enemy.
Charged: Surrounds oneself with a circling wave aura and stashes a Photon Bow into subspace which provides a single hit of straight arrow Support Fire for up to 5 Bow Photon Arts when a Bow Photon Art is used and deals its first damage registering hit. For example, the first hit of the arrow scatter of Frenzy Squib and not the marking arrow it does. This proc does not increase per part pierced nor if multiple enemies are hit at once. Unique to uncharged Dimensional Ray is that it will proc and use up Charged Dimension Ray's support fire for each barrage it does, i.e. the first 5 cycles will be supported. The aura does not change on the number of shots left and only disappears when all 5 are used. The stock can be stockpiled and carries over with manual movement changes such as Cocoon teleporter warps and Area Change running but disappears on Ryuker like teleportations and entering Cocoons. Reusing the charged variant will refresh the stock count to 5.
