View Full Version : Can anyone tell me what the damage effects are?

Ive seen lightning, radiation, fire, and a dark swirly icon.

I know there are: Light people on fire, stun people and do DoT shock damage, apply bio snare to slow, and vaporize them when they die.

What does the nuke icon do? I know the dark swirly either does slow or vaporizing.

Also any others ive missed?

That is a great Guide, and there are several others, but for anyone that is of the TLDR lot here's the Cliff's Notes of Effects.

Toxicity (Green Splotz)
EFFECT: Increases damage done to the affected target by 20%
Electrical (Light Blue Bolt)
EFFECT: Stuns target and enemies near target, also shorts out HUD.
Incendiary (Flame)
EFFECT: Burns the enemy, dealing damage over time. Also, causes NPC's to panic.
Biological (Dark Blue Bio Symbol)
EFFECT: Slows enemies movement and decreases their damage dealt.
Radiation (Green Radiation Symbol)
EFFECT: Makes target vulnerable and increases the damage they take.
Syphon(Purple Swirly)
EFFECT: When the effect is triggered, it will heal the players HP, or shield should the player have max HP. When the effect occurs you will hear a sound and a few seconds later around ~450 damage will be applied to the target and you will be healed.
