Condition Overload is a melee mod that grants extra damage based on the number of unique status effects currently affecting the target.


Rank Effect Cost
0 +13.3% 10
1 +26.7% 11
2 +40% 12
3 +53.3% 13
4 +66.7% 14
5 +80% 15


  • The bonus damage gained by this mod stacks additively with other damage mods like Mod TT 20px.png Pressure Point and Mod TT 20px.png Spoiled Strike to increase your melee damage (including proc damage like DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash). Total damage is calculated as such:
Total Damage = Base Damage × [1 + Damage Mods + (Condition Overload Multiplier × n)] × (1 + Elemental Mods) (with n being the number of unique status effects currently affecting the enemy)
Total Damage = Base Damage × (1 + Lich Bonus) × [1 + Damage Mods + (Condition Overload Multiplier × n ÷ (1 + Lich Bonus))] × (1 + Elemental Mods) (with n being the number of unique status effects currently affecting the enemy)
  • The bonus damage of a new status effect is not applied to the hit which inflicted it (or its proc damage) – only subsequent strikes are amplified.
    • Gunblades' pellets hit consecutively and therefore can be amplified by other pellets of the same shot.
  • Status procs may originate from any source, including primary and secondary weapons, Warframe abilities, companions, other players, or the environment.
  • DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact, DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture, DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash, DmgColdSmall64.png Cold, DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity, DmgHeatSmall64.png Heat, DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin, DmgBlastSmall64.png Blast, DmgCorrosiveSmall64.png Corrosive, DmgGasSmall64.png Gas, DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic, DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation, DmgViralSmall64.png Viral, and DmgVoidSmall64.png Void procs all count for the damage bonus.
    • Lifted b.png Lifted from Melee Heavy Attacks also counts.
    • Nukor.png Nukor and KuvaNukor.png Kuva Nukor apply a unique invisible status called Panel.png Microwave to enemies touched by its beam.
      • Microwave procs have infinite duration.
    • Although knockdown does not cause any icon on the enemy, it still counts as a status.
      • Note that conditions or abilities that prevent knockdowns (e.g. Bastille130xDark.png Bastille) will prevent it from increasing damage.
    • Since Lifted b.png Lifted and knockdown will cancel out each other, the maximum number of status effects that can be applied to an enemy is 16.
  • Status effects from DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity and DmgGasSmall64.png Gas apply radial damage around the primary target, making them especially good for dealing with crowds. The radial damage will benefit from the damage bonus on the primary target but will not count toward bonus damage on subsequent hits on secondary targets.


  • To achieve a high amount of distinct status procs, it is advised to use melee weapons that feature high attack speed with high base status chance and all physical damage types like the Lesion.png Lesion or GlaivePrime.png Glaive Prime.
  • For complementary ranged weapons, it is advised to use weapons that feature high fire rate or area of effect with innate elemental status, such as Staticor.png Staticor or Pox.png Pox.
  • Cedo.png Cedo's Alternate Fire can innately proc DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin, DmgColdSmall64.png Cold, DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity, DmgHeatSmall64.png Heat, and DmgBlastSmall64.png Blast in an area of effect along with DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash from direct contact with its projectile, in addition to other modded elements.
  • Certain Warframes can also inflict status and/or add damage type (plus status) to weapon's attacks, such as SarynIcon272.png Saryn, EmberIcon272.png Ember, VoltIcon272.png Volt, EquinoxIcon272.png Equinox or OberonIcon272.png Oberon.
    • Saryn's passive, in particular, extends the duration of any status effect she inflicts, giving her a larger time window to exploit Condition Overload's added damage.
  • LavosIcon272.png Lavos' passive allows him to spread multiple status types through his abilities.
  • Sentinels and their weapons are additional, viable sources for status effects:
    • Diriga's Mod TT 20px.png Arc Coil and Mod TT 20px.png Electro Pulse can cause DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity procs.
    • Sweeper.png Sweeper (SweeperPrime.png Prime) can reliably proc statuses, even on multiple enemies with increased spread and multishot.
    • Artax.png Artax's attacks are guaranteed to proc DmgColdSmall64.png Cold which also adds the advantage of slowing enemies down.
    • Cryotra.png Cryotra's beam can reliably apply two status effects.
    • Helstrum.png Helstrum's attacks in a proc setup can quite reliably apply DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact, DmgHeatSmall64.png Heat and a combo element within its AoE radius, and DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture to anything directly struck by the missiles.
    • PrismaBurstLaser.png Prisma Burst Laser, obtained by purchasing Prisma Shade from Baro Ki'Teer, has a reload speed of 0.01 seconds, meaning it will effectively fire without stopping, making it useful for applying status effects.
  • Several weapons can wield up to 6 effects simultaneously. Pathocyst.png Pathocyst, Keratinos.png Keratinos, Caustacyst.png Caustacyst, Tatsu.png Tatsu, Plague Kripath and Plague Keewar Zaws, and KuvaShildeg.png Kuva Shildeg with DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation or DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic​​​​​ all tie for the highest number of damage types on a single melee weapon, thanks to innate secondary elements DmgViralSmall64.png Viral, DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation, and DmgCorrosiveSmall64.png Corrosive alongside all 3 physical damage types. After modding these weapons can have up to 6 damage types, which can rise further with stance effects.
  • As this is a rare mod to farm, the easiest way to farm this mod is to just keep doing Deimos Bounties and killing Thrashers and such other creatures that drop this mod.

  • Does not affect explosions (eg. Glaive Heavy Attacks), or account for Nemesis bonuses.


  • Prior to Update 26.0 (2019-10-31), this mod provided a multiplicative bonus independent of base damage mods at a lower +60% damage per status effect. Total damage calculated with Condition Overload was as follows:
Total Damage = Modded Damage × 1.6n (with n being the number of unique status procs currently affecting the enemy)

Patch History[]

Hotfix 31.1.3 (2022-02-15)

  • Fixed damage bonus % provided by Condition Overload not being numerically consistent across Melee weapons.
    • Condition Overload was not accounting for Melee weapons that deal different amounts of damage with different swings via combos. We will continue to watch for any issues related to the above

Update 30.5 (2021-07-06)

Melee Mod Nerfs

Condition Overload’s maximum value is being lowered. It’s been some time since we originally changed this Mod, and in this time we’ve decided we’re still not happy with the way this goes up against other Damage Mods (namely Primed Pressure Point). We’ve reduced this to 80% to make it almost as good as Primed Pressure Point, and 3 Status Types back to where it was originally. It remains true that even though the maximum potential damage is lower now, we think it is still an extremely powerful Mod in its latest iteration.

There should now be a more meaningful choice: do you want front loaded damage or a build up from multiple Status Types?

Condition Overload is changing from:
+120% Melee Damage per Status Type affecting the target.

+80% Melee Damage per Status Type affecting the target.

Hotfix 28.0.6 (2020-06-24)

  • Fixed Condition Overload not affecting the Stropha shots.
  • Fixed Condition Overload not affecting the damage of a thrown Glaive.

Update 26.0 (2019-10-31)

  • Now uses a stacking multiplier based on how many Status Effects are on the target at 120% damage per Status.
  • During this whole Melee rebalance, Condition Overload remained a persistent outlier. Since launch, it has had an unintended stacking mechanic, that nothing else uses in the game: it grew exponentially, making it too volatile to balance. We know there’s nothing worse than ‘how can you call this unintended’, so let’s explain the history: initially it did the stacking on final damage, which, as you know from previous changes, we have been trying to move away from. This is because this type of stacking makes for very hard to control damage progression, and tends to be very confusing as to which damage, Melee/Proc etc, applies where. This new version of the mod makes Condition Overload’s damage multiplication become equal to Pressure Point when the enemy has 1 Status applied, better than Primed Pressure Point at 2 Statuses applied, and from there it just grows and grows. Even though the maximum potential damage is lower now, we think it is still an extremely powerful Mod in its latest iteration.
  • The new ‘Lifted’ Status also counts for Condition Overload calculation. Revised Stances and the new Heavy Attack give reliable ways of applying Status to enemies, which greatly increases the reliability of Condition Overload


Update 19.2 (2016-12-01)

  • Introduced.
