Notes[]

  • When performing a heavy attack, the Caustacyst throws a toxic wave in the direction of the player's aim. This wave will travel up to 20 meters, dealing Corrosive DamageDmgCorrosiveSmall64.png Corrosive damage to all enemies it hits. The wave will also leave behind a temporary trail on the ground that deals Corrosive DamageDmgCorrosiveSmall64.png Corrosive damage to enemies that stand on it.
  • Enemies hit by the wave are also staggered, making them vulnerable to melee finishers (default E ) and susceptible to stealth damage multipliers.
    • Enemies stunned by these pools do not have their alert status changed; enemies can be damaged by the pools and still be killed for stealth kills as long as their stun animation is still playing.
    • This allows players to launch a pool, then launch up to 3 more charge attacks before the enemy can become alerted.
