  • This mod cannot be equipped on shotguns, Exalted Weapons, nor the following primaries:
  • Mutually exclusive with Mod TT 20px.png Thunderbolt (cannot be equipped together).
  • Though having AoE capabilities, the Ferrox.png Ferrox and PriestSpearGun.png Scourge spearguns can equip this mod. They also have different interactions with Health orbs:
    • Primary fire's beam/projectiles and their AoE explosions will pick up orbs.
    • Secondary fire will also pick up orbs if:
      • The speargun hits the orb directly, which will make the weapon return to the player immediately, as if their timer had expired when deployed.
      • The Health orbs are within the PriestSpearGun.png Scourge's radial explosion, but not the Ferrox.png Ferrox' AoE.
  • This mod will make projectiles stop when hitting Health orbs, potentially wasting ammo. This can vary with hitscan weapons.
    • Weapons with Multishot can pick up Health orbs with just a single projectile.
  • Health orbs picked up this way will trigger on-Health-pickup effects, like ArcanePulse64x.png Arcane Pulse, Mod TT 20px.png Health Conversion and Mod TT 20px.png Equilibrium.
    • Mod TT 20px.png Equilibrium (including EquinoxIcon272.png Equinox' passive) does not scale off of the increased health gained.
    • Does not trigger when Health is full
  • Works across the material and Rift planes.


  • Somewhat useful when paired with abilities that increase the chances of Health orbs dropping, like NezhaIcon272.png Nezha's BlazingChakram130xDark.png Blazing Chakram or NekrosIcon272.png Nekros' Desecrate130xDark.png Desecrate.
  • Most useful for healing companions in conjunction with mods such as Mod TT 20px.png Synth Deconstruct as they take the multiplied value of the orb as opposed to the base, and constant upkeep of Mod TT 20px.png Synth Fiber
  • Use of the mod with weapons such as, or similar to, Komorex.png Komorex allows for the collection of orbs without the need of precision allowing constant regeneration of a sentinel or viable upkeep of Mod TT 20px.png Health Conversion on frames that produce less health orbs or even no health orbs on average than frames mentioned above.
