A shattering weapon functions as a breaking weapon that also explodes with a resounding crash upon striking a successful critical hit. In addition to the extra damage from the breaking ability, a shattering weapon deals an extra 1d10 points of damage to objects and crystalline creatures on a successful critical hit. If the weapon’s critical multiplier is ×3, it deals an extra 2d10 points of damage instead, and if the multiplier is ×4, it deals an extra 3d10 points instead. When used against a crystalline creature, this damage stacks with bane and similar weapon special abilities (though the damage from the breaking ability still doesn’t).
