Shock Absorbers is a Warframe mod that increases their DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact, DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture, and DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage resistance.


Rank Effect Cost
0 +5% 4
1 +10% 5
2 +15% 6
3 +20% 7


  • Damage resistance works on both health and shields.
  • Increases effective health/shield by +25% against DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact, DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture, and DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage.
100% ÷ (100% - 20%) = 1.25x more effective health
  • Damage resistance bonus is multiplicative with other sources of damage resistance such as Mod TT 20px.png Adaptation and Mod TT 20px.png Aviator.


  • Formerly displayed the picture of Mod TT 20px.png Steel Fiber, but as of Update 9.7 (2013-08-30), Shock Absorbers gained a unique picture.


Patch History[]

Hotfix 30.0.8 (2021-04-27)

  • Updated Shock Absorber Mod description to reflect its actual function: +20% Physical Damage Resistance (At Max Rank). We have also changed its categorization as an Exilus Mod into a normal Mod.
    • Contrary to its previous description of “+20% Damage Resistance on Knockdown” it did not require knockdown to give resistance. This has seemed to be the case since its release and due to its relatively low discussion rates it was a complete oversight that it was not working as described. When deciding whether to match the description text or existing effect, we considered that unlike Mods like Diamond Skin and Flame Repellent which provide damage type specific resistances, Shock Absorber, which covered all Physical Damage types, was considered an Exilus. So we have removed its Exilus classification as it better fits in with the other damage resistance Mods.
    • Upon login, if you have Shock Absorber equipped in the Exilus Slot it will simply give you a popup warning “This Slot is reserved for Exilus Mods when you open the upgrade screen. You will have to remove it manually from there.”

Update 9.7 (2013-08-30)

  • Shock Absorbers has a new image.
