  • Upon performing a mid-air attack after bullet-jumping or double-jumping, an infested grenade will be launched towards the player's target.
    • Jumping after falling off a ledge counts as a double jump, allowing you to launch a grenade with only a single, non-bullet jump jump.
    • Achieving the requirements of the Exodia Contagion will decrease the angular range of Slam Attacks down to roughly 15 degrees, allowing the grenades to be tossed at lower angles.
  • The damage, critical chance, critical damage of the grenade is affected by the weapon's base stats and mods.
    • The damage is divided into two parts, one is the impact damage, and the other is the damage caused by the explosion.

    • The infested grenade is capable of inflicting a Viral b Viral proc, in addition to any other status effects on the equipped Zaw.
  • The Infested Grenade can Stick to enemies and surfaces for 5 seconds.
    • When attached to an enemy, it deals Damage per second for 5 seconds, exploding on the 5th second, dealing damage to enemies within about 15 meters.
  • Regardless of statistics, Exodia Contagion has a small chance to cause a Blast b Blast proc.
  • The infested grenade will do self-damage, but will only apply Viral b Viral procs and elemental base damage from the Zaw's strike.
  • The infested Grenade is inter-planar, being able to damage enemies regardless of plane.
    • The projectile is not affected by LimboIcon272 Limbo's Stasis130xDark Stasis and will do damage to enemies outside the Rift.
    • However, the projectile will still do self damage to Limbo even when he is inside the Rift.
  • The projectile can be controlled by IvaraIcon272 Ivara's Navigator130xDark Navigator ability.
  • For each tier of Exodia Contagion, the infested grenade's damage is increased after traveling 30 meters, indicated by a small burst of energy at that point.
  • The projectile is not affected by range mods.
  • The projectile's traveling speed is affected by attack speed mods.
    • The grenade is affected by gravity, but is otherwise not range-limited.
    • The grenade can proc Berserker charges, although they do not count towards the Melee Combo Counter.
    • Upon using volt's speed ability the projectile will receive significantly increased traveling speed with barely noticeable drop off.
  • Channeling will affect direct hits with the infested grenade and will trigger Dispatch Overdrive if an enemy is killed, though kills from the grenade's explosion will not. Despite this, direct hits with the infested grenade will not drain any energy while channeling.


  • The projectile launched takes on the appearance of the Zaw's Strike, which will embed itself on the first surface it hits before disappearing after a few seconds.
  • Installing this arcane (or Exodia Epidemic) on a Zaw will give the Zaw's Links an infested visual appearance.
