MaxStepFraction
is an option to functions like NDSolve that specifies the maximum fraction of the total range to cover in a single step.
Make sure that NDSolve uses at least 100 steps over the integration range:

Features with small relative size in the integration interval can be missed:
Use MaxStepFraction to ensure features are not missed, independent of interval size:
For an interval length l, MaxStepFraction->f is equivalent to MaxStepSize:
