A damage multiplier is the number that the base damage of a weapon or attack is multiplied by to yield the actual damage in-game. The higher the multiplier, the more lethal the shot. Generally shots to upper torso, especially head and chest, increase damage, while hitting the legs will decrease damage.

A more in-depth explanation of damage multipliers can be found here:
