DAMAGE EFFICACY
x1.5 damage to Sentient
x1.5 damage to The Murmur
x0.5 damage to Orokin

STATUS EFFECT
Created by combining DmgFireSmall64 Heat and DmgElectricitySmall64 Electricity damage.

DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation causes enemies to attack everything nearby, including allies, for a short duration. Confusion damage increases up to 550% with multiple stacks.
—In-game Description

DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation Damage is one of the six secondary elemental damage types, composed of DmgFireSmall64 Heat and DmgElectricitySmall64 Electricity elements. Deals increased damage to Sentient and The Murmur, but reduced against Orokin. Its Status Effect causes the target to indiscriminately attack their own allies with increased damage to them.

Status Effects[]

General[]

The status effect of DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation damage is Confusion. A confused unit cannot tell friend from foe, fighting against all units and becoming a target of all units for 12 seconds. Additionally, confused units deal 100% bonus damage to enemies of the Tenno. Subsequent procs add 50% damage for up to 550% total after 10 stacks, while also enhancing slam attacks against former allies from Knockdown b Knockdown to Ragdoll b Ragdoll, with each stack having its own duration. Any stacks applied after the 10th will replace the oldest stack. Once confusion ends, the affected unit will rejoin its faction.

Auras from confused units (such as from Eximus or Ancient Healers) will stop affecting their allies. Likewise, confused enemies cannot benefit from enemy auras.

Against a Tenno, confusion causes friendly fire between that Tenno and other players while also reducing weapon accuracy, lasting for 4 seconds. An irradiated Tenno cannot revive fallen allies, including Operatives in Rescue and Sortie Defense missions; receiving a proc during the revive process will interrupt the attempt. A confused Tenno can proc status effects on their allies as they would on enemies, including DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation.

For Kuva Liches, Acolytes, enemy Necramechs, Sisters of Parvos, and Hounds, Confusion will instead increase the damage they take from allied units by +100%, is limited to only 4 stacks (for a total of 250% increased damage taken from allies), and will not cause them to be attacked by their allies at all unless those allies are themselves afflicted with the Confusion effect. Enemies with Overguard are immune to Radiation status until the health buffer is removed.

Visually, enemies affected by a DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation proc will be covered in a purple-like substance.

Railjack[]

DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation does not have a Railjack space counterpart and is thus not able to proc any status effect nor is it included in calculations for status proc weighting.

Bugs[]

  • If a player that has a Sentinel equipped with Mod TT 20px Coolant Leak is affected with DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation, the player is slowed. The player will continue to be affected until either the Sentinel or the player dies.
  • Some bosses with an invulnerability stage, such as Lieutenant Lech Kril, can be affected by this element. Since they don't attack the Tenno, their invulnerability never ends, thus making the boss fight unbeatable.

Patch History[]

Update 36.0 (2024-06-18)

Simplified Faction Resistances
  • Orokin:
    • Resistant to Radiation
  • Sentient:
    • Vulnerable to Radiation
  • The Murmur:
    • Vulnerable to Radiation

Update 27.3 (2020-03-24)

Kuva Lich Changes:

Based on feedback with the recent overhaul to Status Effects in Warframe Revised 27.2.0, the conversation of how Status Effects should react with Bosses or VIPS has started. Our first step down this road is starting with Kuva Liches.

  • Radiation does not change the enemy’s Faction, and instead of increasing Damage done to enemies with stacks, it increases the Damage taken from enemies who have turned on him/her.

Update 27.2 (2020-03-05)

  • The first Radiation Status Effect has an enemy deal 100% Damage to allies. Subsequent Radiation Status adds +50% damage, leading to up to 550% (capped). Each Radiation Status Effect has a duration of 12 seconds.

Update 11.0 (2013-11-20)

  • Introduced.
