These festering sacs of pus and gas burst violently on impact.

The Pox are a thrown Infested weapon released in Update: The Silver Grove. Similar to the GrineerGrenadeLauncher Torid, the Pox's projectiles release a Toxin b Toxin cloud upon coming into contact with a surface or enemy, making it ideal for large groups or area denial. However, its low magazine size and ammunition reserves mean that players must be mindful of their ammo.

This weapon deals Toxin b Toxin damage.




  • The Poison Cloud deals 20 Toxin b Toxin damage per second during its 5 second duration, totaling 100 Toxin b Toxin damage.
    • Each second during the Poison Cloud's duration factors in Pox's status and crit chance as well, allowing each tick of damage to potentially proc and/or crit until the 5 seconds ends.
    • Additionally, each tick of damage will also guarantee a Toxin b Toxin proc with a halved duration (from 8 seconds to 4 seconds). Thus granting a possible 200 additional Toxin b Toxin damage assuming the hostile remains in the Poison Cloud for the entire 5 second duration, for a grand total of 300 Toxin b Toxin damage.
  • Pox has a noticeably bigger lingering cloud when Mod TT 20pxFulmination is equipped.


  • As the Pox explode on contact with surfaces instead of sticking to them, adding Heat b Heat, Electricity b Electricity or Blast b Blast damage is recommended to keep enemies in the clouds for extended periods.
  • The high status chance of the Pox, along with its innate Toxin b Toxin damage makes it an effective tool to strip off enemy armor via Corrosive b Corrosive procs.
    • Corrosive b Corrosive can be mixed with Blast b Blast to essentially create a stunlock cloud of armor stripping, which (with multiple cloud stacks) can shred armor in seconds.
  • This weapon performs especially well in corridors and cramped spaces where enemies are forced to cluster together, and the stacked gas clouds can make short work of them.
    • Pox users should be mindful about their ammo reserves when using this tactic, however, because they might find themselves ganged up by enemies while trying to pick up ammo drops.



  • Pox refers to a type of disease that is characterized by pustules or pockmarks that cover the whole body, examples of which include Chickenpox and Smallpox.
    • In earlier times, Pox may be used to refer to diseases in general, or a curse.
