Combined from Heat b Heat and Cold b Cold damage. Most effective against Ancient Infested. Blast status reduces enemy accuracy for a short duration.

—In-game Description

Blast b Blast Damage is one of the six secondary elemental damage types, composed of Heat b Heat and Cold b Cold elements. The violent force of this damage is highly destructive to IconGrineerBGrineer Machinery and brittle Fossilized Infestation bInfested creatures, but performs poorly against the Ferrite Armor worn by many Grineer units.

Status EffectsEdit

GeneralEdit

The status effect of Blast b Blast damage is Inaccuracy. It reduces the accuracy of the afflicted target by 30% for 6 seconds. Subsequent procs add 5% reduced accuracy up to 75% in total after 10 stacks, with each proc having their own duration.

Enemies affected by a Blast b Blast proc will have their heads covered in a spark and smoke-like cloud.

EmpyreanEdit

Blast b Blast does not have an Empyrean counterpart and is thus not able to proc any status effect nor is it included in calculations for status proc weighting.

Type EffectivenessEdit

As with all damage types ineffective against armorBlast b Blast damage's type modifier works in two ways: it decreases the damage dealt in the same way as a type modifier against hitpoints and increases the armor's value by a percentage of the target's armor for the damage calculation. Practically speaking, this means that Blast b Blast​ damage is reduced by -25% and damage is further reduced by 125% of a target's whole Ferrite Armor.

TriviaEdit

  • The Blast b Blast property of the mixture of Cold b Cold and Heat b Heat is likely a reference to the thermite ice bomb; where thermite can burn so hot that it will melt the ice, boil the water, and ultimately decompose the vapor into hydrogen and oxygen. This in turn fuels the fire and cues the explosive property.
    • It could also be thermal shock, a fracturing that happens when cold items are rapidly heated or hot things are rapidly cooled. On the molecular level, solid objects expand when heated and contract when cooled, and if subject to a huge temperature change in a short period of time, many materials break down from the energetic motion. This phenomenon commonly occurs (violently) when rinsing a hot glass in a cold sink.

Patch HistoryEdit

Update 27.2
  • Grants the Blast Status Effect a single target. Blast Status reduces enemy accuracy by 30% base. Subsequent Blast Status Effects add +5% inaccuracy for for 75% total at 10 stacks. Each Blast Status has a 6 second Duration.
