Toxin b.png Toxin Damage is one of the four primary elemental damage types. It is effective against IconCorpusB.svgCorpus Flesh and completely bypasses Shielded and Proto Shields, but is less effective against Machinery and Robotic enemies as well as Fossilized Infestation b.svgInfested creatures, exacerbated by Toxic Ancients which completely nullifies Toxin b.png Toxin damage.

Status Effects[edit | edit source]

General[edit | edit source]

The status effect of Toxin b.png Toxin damage is Poison. It applies a DoT effect after a 1 second delay, dealing a tick of damage every second for 6 seconds. Each tick dealing damage equal to 0.5 × Modded Damage × (1 + Toxin Damage mods) × (1 + Faction Damage mods) as Toxin b.png Toxin damage. Multiple instances of the effect can stack on the same target, with each instance having its own timer, but only up to 10 tick numbers are actually shown, the rest are hidden to save performance.

For example, tick damage for a weapon with an innate 100 damage, Mod TT 20px.pngSerration, Mod TT 20px.pngInfected Clip, and Mod TT 20px.pngBane of Grineer will be:

Modded Damage = 100 × (1 + 1.65) × (1 + 0.3) = 344.5
Toxin Mod Multiplier = (1 + 0.9) × (1 + 0.3) = 2.47x
Tick Damage = 0.5 × 344.5 × 2.47 = 425.4575

As can be seen in the above calculations for tick damage, Faction Damage is applied twice, making their effective bonus = (1+Faction Bonus)^2. Which is +69% for the 30% Faction Damage mods and +140.25% for the 55% Primed Faction Damage mods.

Enemies afflicted by a Toxin b.png Toxin proc have a green sickly substance leaking from their bodies.

Empyrean[edit | edit source]

The Empyrean game mode version of Toxin b.png Toxin is called Chem b.png Chem. Its status effect is Intoxicate, changing the faction of the afflicted target for 12 seconds allowing for friendly fire between it and normally allied units, with subsequent procs refreshing the duration.

Type Effectiveness[edit | edit source]

IconGrineerB.svgGrineer Health Toxin b.png Toxin Modifier IconCorpusB.svgCorpus Health Toxin b.png Toxin Modifier Infestation b.svgInfested Health Toxin b.png Toxin Modifier
Cloned Flesh Flesh +50% Infested
Ferrite Armor Shield N/A Infested Flesh
Alloy Armor Proto Shield N/A Fossilized -50%
Machinery -25% Robotic -25% Infested Sinew

 * The codex indicates it does +25% against Proto Shield, but as the damage completely bypasses most shields, the vulnerability is usually meaningless.

Patch History[edit | edit source]

Update 27.2

  • Toxin Damage used to apply to Armor with a 25% bonus. Now it is neutral. For role distinction, Toxin bypasses Shields (but not Armor) where as Slash Status bypasses Armor but not Shields.
  • Each Toxin Status has its own duration, but now we only show a maximum of 10 damage numbers in the HUD, damage is unaffected, but reducing how many damage events we show helps with performance
  • The base duration of a Toxin Status Effect now matches Slash for 6 seconds.
