Status Effects[]

General[]

The status effect of Puncture DamageDmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture damage is Weakened. It causes the victim's attacks to deal 30% less damage over 6 seconds. Subsequent procs add 5% reduced damage up to 75% in total after 10 stacks, with each proc having their own duration. Affected enemies will have a yellow aura.

Enemies killed by a Puncture DamageDmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture proc may have a large bloody hole on where they were hit by the killing blow.

Railjack[]

The status effect of Puncture DamageDmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture damage against Railjack space enemies is Decompress, reducing the target ship's shields and armor for 20 seconds, with subsequent procs stacking additively.

As with all damage types effective against armor, Puncture DamageDmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture damage's type modifier works in two ways: it ignores a percentage of the target's armor, and increases the damage dealt in the same way as a type modifier against hitpoints. Practically speaking, this means that Puncture DamageDmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture​ damage is only reduced by 50% of a target's whole Ferrite Armor and the base damage is increased by +50%, is only reduced by 85% of a target's whole Alloy Armor and the base damage is increased by +15%, and is only reduced by 75% of a target's whole Infested Sinew and the base damage is increased by 25%.

Weapons[]

These weapons deal more than a majority of their physical damage as Puncture DamageDmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture. The damage ratio is important for physical damage status effects because the game weights the likelihood of which proc occurs according to physical damage ratio. Hence, these weapons proc Weakened more than Stagger or Bleed.
