VoidTearIcon b Void Damage is a special damage type that is almost exclusive to Operators, their Amps, and XakuIcon272 Xaku. Originally a placeholder damage type introduced in Update 18.0, it was formally named into the game in Update 22.0 with the inclusion of The Quills. While neutral across the board, it provides several advantages over SentientFactionIcon bSentient enemies as follows:

Other known usage of this damage type are as follows:

  • VoidTearIcon b Void damage is neither physical nor elemental; as such it receives no increases from Madurai's Phoenix Talons or Phoenix Spirit, and conversely it receives no penalties against resistances generated from Sortie conditions (Physical or Elemental Enhancements). VoidTearIcon b Void damage deals full damage to enemies with either of these enhancements.
  • The BallasSword Paracesis at Rank 40 gains VoidTearIcon b Void properties against Sentients. However, it does not actually do VoidTearIcon b Void damage.

Patch HistoryEdit

Update 29.1
  • We are making Void damage ‘True Neutral’ by removing the 50% resistance of Void damage on Cloned Flesh and Fossilized enemies - a long desired request for Void damage.
    • Currently, Void damage is relatively ineffective against Cloned Flesh and Fossilized enemies which greatly limits the use of Xata’s Whisper on Grineer and Infested enemies. In an effort to give it (and Void damage in general) more utility across enemy categories, we are removing this resistance so that it aligns with its neutral effectiveness against the other enemy types. It is important to note that Eidolons, Amalgams, and certain bosses will still maintain this resistance.

Update 22.0

  • Introduced.
