Acquisition[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Explosion triggers on reactivating while Larva is active. Reactivation destroys Larva and does not cost energy.
  • Toxin b.png Toxin damage is affected by Ability Strength and diminishes with distance from Larva.
    • Explosion has a 100% chance to proc Toxin b.png Toxin Status Effect.
    • Explosion and Toxin b.png Toxin DoT damage are not affected by Mutation stacks, instead stacking based on the number of enemies grabbed by Larva.
      • Damage is calculated based on the number of enemies grabbed during the initial cast, meaning killing enemies caught in Larva will not reduce explosion and Toxin b.png Toxin DoT damage.
    • Explosion damage is calculated using the following formula:
      Modified Damage = 300 × (1 + Strength Mods) × Number of Caught Enemies
  • Explosion radius is affected by Ability Range.
  • Grabbed enemies are briefly launched up in the air on Larva explosion.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The augment can be used as a quick way to spam Larva.
    • Allows a duration build Nidus to be viable as the ability to spam Larva is no longer hindered by duration.
  • Provides a quick way to deal with large amounts of enemies as the damage stacks with the amount of enemies grabbed by larva.
    • Also allows players to conserve energy as recasting doesn't cost energy.
      • On the other hand, players are unable to gain energy or Mutation stacks by killing enemies through recasting.
  • Most effective versus the Corpus as Toxin b.png Toxin ignores shields and does bonus to humanoid enemies. Fairly effective versus the Infested, although Ancient Disruptors will reduce the damage dealt, and Toxic Ancients will eliminate toxin damage from nearby Infested.
