Tips[]

  • The Pupacyst is an excellent anti-Corpus weapon as its innate DmgViralSmall64.png Viral damage increases damage done to the target's health but can also be modded to gain DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin damage to affect health, and DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic damage to devastate shields.
  • The slow attack speed can be mitigated by equipping Mod TT 20px.png Fury (Mod TT 20px.png Primed) alongside Mod TT 20px.png Berserker Fury and Mod TT 20px.png Gladiator Vice.

Trivia[]

  • Although the Pupacyst's description claims that its tip "rends flesh", it has no DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage whatsoever.

Bugs[]

  • Pupacyst gains 7 damage to Spin Attacks for equipping Stance Mods.
    • This damage is affected by Mods.
