Ferrite Armor is one of two armor classes which reduce damage taken to health. Indicated by a yellow hit point bar, it is relatively common with low and mid-tier Grineer troops such as Lancers and has generally weaker resistances than the more advanced Alloy Armor, and exists on all Warframes. As a result of the combination, the best damage to use against these enemies is generally Puncture with Toxin or Corrosive damage, but resists Slash and Blast damage.
Armor has an effectiveness value based on their level, which always reduces damage regardless of type. The full damage calculation then combines this armor value, as well as both the Cloned Flesh and Ferrite Armor's damage modifiers.
Note that damage types effective against Ferrite Armor ignore a corresponding percentage of armor in addition to increasing the base damage against enemies with Ferrite Armor.
