Detect Vulnerability is a Sentinel precept that allows the Helios Sentinel to reveal weakspots on enemies that have had previously completed Codex scans. Hitting an enemy in the highlighted weakspot will apply a damage multiplier.

Enemies scanned via this mod do not increase your standing with Cephalon Simaris.

  • Enemies must have a completed codex entry prior to entering the mission to be eligible to be marked with a weakspot.
  • Marking an enemy with a weakspot does not consume a Codex Scanner charge and it is not necessary to have Mod TT 20px.png Investigator equipped for Detect Vulnerability to function.
  • The Sentinel will randomly select a single enemy within 30 meters to mark.
  • The mark appears as a highlight in the Sentinel's energy color, visible to all members of the Sentinel owner's squad on a randomly selected enemy body part.
  • The mark has a 'fade-in' time of approximately 0.5 seconds and a duration of 9.5 seconds at max rank.
  • The mark will remain for the duration even if the target moves further than 30 meters away after being marked, unless the target is killed.
  • Selecting a target to mark takes the Sentinel approximately 2 seconds from when an enemy comes within range or after the previous mark expires.
  • The damage increase stacks multiplicatively with body part multipliers.
  • Although the precept functions similarly to Banshee's Sonar130xDark.png Sonar ability, the highlighted weakspot is smaller and will not trigger Mod TT 20px.png Resonance.
