Tips[edit | edit source]

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