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

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The bonus damage gained by this mod stacks additively with other damage mods like Mod TT 20px.pngPressure Point and Mod TT 20px.pngSpoiled Strike to increase your melee damage (including proc damage like Slash b.svg 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)
  • At two status effects applied to a target, this mod provides more base damage bonus compared to Mod TT 20px.pngPrimed Pressure Point and Mod TT 20px.pngPressure Point.
    • For builds that are constrained for mod space, it may be beneficial to replace Mod TT 20px.pngPressure Point with Condition Overload, especially for status-oriented melees.
  • 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.
  • Impact b.svg Impact, Puncture b.svg Puncture, Slash b.svg Slash, Cold b.png Cold, Electricity b.png Electricity, Heat b.png Heat, Toxin b.png Toxin, Blast b.png Blast, Corrosive b.png Corrosive, Gas b.png Gas, Magnetic b.png Magnetic, Radiation b.png Radiation, Viral b.png Viral, and VoidTearIcon b.png Void procs all count for this mod.
    • Lifted b.svg Lifted from Melee Heavy Attacks also counts.
    • GrineerMicrowaveGun.png Nukor and KuvaNukor.png Kuva Nukor apply a unique invisible status called Microwave to enemies touched by its beam.
      • Microwave procs have infinite duration.
    • Although knockdown doesn't 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.svg 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 Electricity b.png Electricity and Gas b.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.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • 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 InfTipedo.png Lesion or PrimeGlaive.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 CrpElectroMag.png Staticor or InfProximityStars.png Pox.
  • Cedo.png Cedo's Alternate Fire can innately proc Toxin b.png Toxin, Cold b.png Cold, Electricity b.png Electricity, Heat b.png Heat, and Blast b.png Blast in an area of effect along with Slash b.svg 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, or EquinoxIcon272.png Equinox.
  • 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.pngArc Coil and Mod TT 20px.pngElectro Pulse can cause Electricity b.png Electricity procs.
    • DESentinelSweeper.png Sweeper (SentinelSweeperPrime.png Prime) can reliably proc status chance, even on multiple enemies with increased spread and multishot.
    • SentinelArtax.png Artax's attacks are guaranteed to proc Cold b.png Cold which also adds the advantage of slowing enemies down.
    • Cryotra.png Cryotra's beam can reliably apply two status effects.
  • The Pathocyst.png Pathocyst and the Plague Kripath and Plague Keewar Zaw​​​​​ tie for the highest number of damage types on a single melee weapon, thanks to innate Viral b.png Viral alongside all 3 physical damage types. After modding these weapons can have up to 6 damage types, each providing valuable procs.
  • 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.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Prior to Update 26.0, 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[edit | edit source]

Hotfix 28.0.6

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

Update 26.0

  • 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

  • Introduced.
