This page is in reference to the Damage 2.0 system.

The chance that a hit will apply a Status Effect based on the types of damage the weapon inflicts.

Values over 100% have a chance to inflict multiple Status Effects at once.


> Chance for each Status Effect type per hit:
—In-game Description

A Status Effect, or commonly called a Proc, is an additional effect which may be triggered at random by a hit from a weapon or Warframe ability. Status Chance is the probability that a hit will inflict a status effect. The base duration of the Proc will depend on its type, and whether the target is an enemy or another Tenno. Warframe abilities usually have a high chance to proc, or in some cases, greater than or equal to 100% chance to inflict their status effect (e.g. FrostIcon272 Frost's IceWave130xWhite Ice Wave ability).

Each damage type is associated with a status effect. Weapons that deal multiple damage types will have a separate chance to inflict its associated status effect on a target, and only one damage type can proc per hit, unless status chance is over 100%.

For example, a weapon such as an unmodified Staticor Staticor deals solely DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation damage. In addition to its damage, the Staticor also has a 28% status chance on each shot to cause a proc. On a successful proc, the enemy will receive the Radiation status effect, which causes Confusion over the duration of the effect.

Enemies also possess the ability to inflict status effects on Tenno. For example, a Grineer Scorch has a chance to inflict the Ignited status effect with the DmgFireSmall64 Heat damage from his Ignis Ignis. Similarly, enemies are also able to inflict physical procs such as Bleeding (associated with DmgSlashSmall64 Slash damage) bypassing the player's armor.

Empyrean[]

This section is transcluded from Damage § Empyrean. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

Empyrean gamemode and Railjacks use a slightly altered system of the currently existing damage system. Archguns and Archmelees deal 90.91% (10/11) reduced damage to space enemies (or 9.09% of its arsenal damage) while Railjack Armaments and Tactical mods deal their full listed damage to them before accounting for hit point resistances and vulnerabilities.

Primary physical and elemental damage types have different status effects against space enemies outlined in the chart below. Secondary elemental damage types (DmgBlastSmall64 Blast, DmgCorrosiveSmall64 Corrosive, DmgGasSmall64 Gas, DmgMagneticSmall64 Magnetic, DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation, and DmgViralSmall64 Viral) do not have altered status effects and cannot proc against space enemies, but Archguns and Archmelees modded for secondary elementals will still increase total damage.

This system does not apply to on-foot enemies, such as Ramsled boarding parties, and Crewship and Points of Interest personnel, who will take damage and status as per normal.

Damage Type Empyrean-only Status Effects
DmgImpactSmall64 Impact Concuss
Crew within a gunship have reduced aim and damage for 6 seconds. Additional procs refresh duration.
DmgPunctureSmall64 Puncture Decompress
Temporarily reduces target ship's shields by ?% and current armor by 10% for 20 seconds. Additional procs stack multiplicatively.
DmgSlashSmall64 Slash Tear
Target ship receives 7.5% increased damage for 20 seconds. Additional procs stack multiplicatively with itself.
DmgColdSmall64 Cold Immobilize
Target ship's weapons are disabled and it slows down to a complete stop. Lasts for 6 seconds. Additional procs refresh duration.
DmgElectricitySmall64 Electricity Scramble
Target ship spirals erratically for 6 seconds, being unable to attack while moving in a straight line. Additional procs refresh duration.
DmgFireSmall64 Heat Sear
Target ship receives damage over time for 6 seconds. Additional procs increase damage dealt over time.
DmgToxinSmall64 Toxin Intoxicate
Target ship attacks any closest enemy and will be attacked in return for 12 seconds. Additional procs refresh duration.

Status Chance[]

Status chance can be a key factor in deciding on a weapon of choice. Some effects are very powerful responses to certain enemies, while others may be less beneficial. For example, DmgCorrosiveSmall64 Corrosive procs are valued highly against heavily armored foes, but DmgMagneticSmall64 Magnetic procs have no benefit to enemies that lack shields.

The chance that a proc will occur can be directly increased with mods such as Mod TT 20px Rifle Aptitude. One can also increase the number of projectiles fired through multishot mods such as Mod TT 20px Split Chamber; this effectively increases the opportunities for an enemy to be procced per a given attack, and is reflected in the weapon's attributes box in the Arsenal screen, but does not change the status chance for each individual hit. Another indirect way of increasing the amount of procs is to increase fire rate, this also doesn't change the likelihood that a proc will occur per hit, but increases the number of possible procs in a given time frame.

When a weapon achieves a status chance higher than 100%, each hit may apply additional status effects. The type of each proc is independently drawn, so it is possible to apply the same status several times in one hit.

Damage Distribution[]

Damage procs will occur in proportion to the amount of base damage dealt by each of the present damage types on the weapon. For example, an unmodded Strun Strun's highest physical damage type is DmgImpactSmall64 Impact, thus it inflicts mostly knockback procs.

Increasing the physical or elemental damage of a weapon does not increase the duration of the associated proc (e.g. enemies won't be confused longer if DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation damage is increased).

When a hit procs, the chance for an individual damage type to proc in relation to the others is:

Proc Type Chance = Damage ÷ Total Damage

For example, if a weapon's damage is composed of 20 DmgImpactSmall64 Impact, 5 DmgPunctureSmall64 Puncture, 10 DmgSlashSmall64 Slash, 25 DmgFireSmall64 Heat, and 50 DmgCorrosiveSmall64 Corrosive, then its total damage is 20 + 5 + 10 + 25 + 50 = 110. Therefore, the chance for the individual damage types to proc will be:

Impact Puncture Slash Heat Corrosive
Damage 20 5 10 25 50
Proc Type Chance 18.18% 4.55% 9.09% 22.73% 45.45%


Status Immunity Interactions[]

Proc type chances are not altered by enemy resistances or weaknesses to the damage components used in their computation; however, they are modified by enemy status immunities. When an attack procs a status effect on an enemy which is immune to a particular proc type, the respective damage type is excluded from proc type chance calculations for status effects on that enemy.

For example, if the weapon outlined above were used against an enemy with Corrosion status immunity (regardless of whether that enemy is also immune to DmgCorrosiveSmall64 Corrosive damage), the chances for the individual damage types to proc would change to the following values:

Impact Puncture Slash Heat Corrosive
Damage 20 5 10 25 50
Proc Type Chance 33.33% 8.33% 16.67% 41.67% N/A

DoT Damage Scaling[]

If the initial hit is affected by the following, a resulting, damage-dealing effect will also benefit accordingly:

Bleed per tick = 100 × (1 + Mod TT 20px 1.65) × 0.35 × (1 + Mod TT 20px 0.3) ^2 = 156.7475

Status Duration[]

Table is outdated.

Status effects have a duration over which they apply to their target, and some of them even deal damage over time. A status effect's duration can be increased or decreased with mods that affect status duration (e.g. Mod TT 20px Lasting Sting).

Damage-dealing status effects will benefit from modifiers on headshots and critical hits.

Damage duration can be negative (over -100% duration through Riven Mods). This causes all proc effects which have a duration or deal damage over time to be nullified. All instant procs or those who deal instant damage occur. The collapsed table shows this in more detail:

Negative duration effects
Damage Type Nullified Effect Occurs Normally
DmgImpactSmall64 Impact Stagger -
DmgPunctureSmall64 Puncture Weakened -
DmgSlashSmall64 Slash Bleed -
DmgColdSmall64 Cold Freeze -
DmgElectricitySmall64 Electricity Stun Tesla Chain
DmgFireSmall64 Heat Ignite Panic animation occurs (but no flame)
DmgToxinSmall64 Toxin Poison -

DmgGasSmall64 Gas Toxin Cloud -
DmgMagneticSmall64 Magnetic Increased shield damage Visual effects
DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation Confusion -
DmgViralSmall64 Viral Increased health damage Visual effects

Note: The information above is based on this forum post from EDFScout and may need further confirmation. Non-consistent observations as mentioned in the post have been changed to the more likely effect, i.e. for impact stagger should not appear, but knockback, and for electricity stun should not be triggered.

Damage Over Time[]

Status effects that deal damage over time will have a base duration of 6 seconds, during which they will deal a tick of damage for every second that the effect is active. AoE status effects, such as DmgElectricitySmall64 Electricity and DmgGasSmall64 Gas will always start dealing damage ticks the moment it is procced on an enemy. Single target status effects will have a 1 second delay before dealing their damage ticks. The table below illustrates this mechanic.

It may be subjective and contain information or terminology that is not used by Digital Extremes or in official WARFRAME communications, and may not be an officially recognized concept.

Forced procs[1] are status effects that are guaranteed to occur regardless of the status chance and damage distribution of the weapon. They are independent from normally occurring procs which can also take place alongside forced procs.

Note that this is not the same as having 100% status chance.

Forced procs have negative interactions with some warframe abilities such as Zephyr's Tornado where forced procs do not apply to enemies caught within the tornados, and instead apply to the tornados themselves.

Multishot[]

When firing multiple pellets in a single attack, the status chance on a listed weapon in the Arsenal is the probability that each pellet will individually proc. For example, the StrunWraith Strun Wraith displays a 12% status chance, so each of its ten pellets has a 12% chance to individually proc.

Average Procs[]

When you might apply more than one kind of status effect, or the applied effect is one which benefits from multiple applications in the same shot (e.g. DmgCorrosiveSmall64 Corrosive procs), it is helpful to know the average quantity of status effects triggered per shot (i.e. from a single click of the fire button). This value can be determined with the following formula:

Average Number of Procs Per Shot = Multishot × (Number of Forced Procs + Status Chance per Projectile)

Average Number of Procs per Second = Average Number of Procs Per Shot × Fire Rate

A table with example values to display the relation of status chance and multishot.

20 150% 100% 99% 80% 30 20 19.8 16

Continuous Weapons[]

Despite Continuous Weapons firing only one beam after adding multishot (with damage instances merged), it will still proc status effects as if more than one projectile was visually present. This means that multishot benefits the average status chance of continuous weapons like any other weapon.


Status Mods[]

Status chance mods affect the base status chance of the weapon, i.e. the status chance value displayed in the Codex that is the probability, for the unmodded weapon, that each projectile will inflict a status effect.

Status Immunity[]

Players can achieve temporary total status immunity by equipping the below mods or using these abilities. For immunity towards individual status effects, please navigate towards the respective damage type page. Status immunity prevents new status effects from being applied to players, but does not remove existing status effects.

Note that sources of Invulnerability and Overguard also protect against status effects.

Valence Block

Purifying himself from all ailments, LavosIcon272 Lavos cleanses all active negative Status Effects and gains status immunity for 10 seconds upon collecting an Energy or Universal Orb. Picking up an Energy or Universal Orb has a cooldown of 5 seconds.

  • Buff duration is renewed to full upon collecting a new orb.
  • Valence Block buff icon and timer are shown beside Lavos' shield and health indicators.
  • While activated, three serpent-like energy particle effects encircle Lavos' body.
  • If Lavos is injured with missing health, Universal Orbs are collectible to heal him with no cooldown period in between.
  • When Lavos' Companion is equipped with Mod TT 20px Synth Fiber, all nearby Health and Universal Orbs will be collected, bypassing Lavos' innate orb pickup cooldown entirely.

Special Casting

Stats and Modding[]

LavosIcon272 Lavos has no energy capacity and his abilities do not use any resource to activate. Instead, each of his abilities are free to cast with a cooldown in between uses. The EnergyOrb Ability Efficiency stat will instead affect the cooldown reduction effect from TransmutationProbe130xWhite Transmutation Probe and Mod TT 20px Swift Bite.

  • Mods which convert energy spent on abilities to shields, such as Mod TT 20px Brief Respite or the Augur Mod Set, do not replenish shields.
  • Because Lavos can still pick up energy orbs, mods or arcanes that benefit from picking up energy, such as Mod TT 20px Equilibrium, Mod TT 20px Energy Conversion, and ArcaneEnergize Arcane Energize, still function.
  • Subsumed abilities injected into Lavos via the Helminth system will cost 0 energy, but instead incur a 10 second cooldown after cast and disable the elemental imbuement hold-function (see below) associated with the ability button.
    • On non-recastable abilities (e.g. Roar130xWhite Roar), the cooldown begins after the ability's duration expires, unless modded with an augment that allows it to be recastable (e.g. Mod TT 20px Piercing Roar).
    • On channeled abilities (e.g. Gloom130xWhite Gloom), they instead have a AbilityDurationBuff12 second base duration.

The AbilityDurationBuff Ability Duration stat will also affect the Status Duration stat uniquely innate to Lavos, which extends or shortens the duration of all status effects created by Lavos using his weapons and abilities.

Elemental Imbuement[]

Experiment and unleash volatile mixtures of the deadly elements. Hold down one of the four ability buttons (default 1 ,2 ,3 ,4 ) to imbue a Primary Elemental damage type (DmgToxinSmall64 Toxin, DmgColdSmall64 Cold, DmgElectricitySmall64 Electricity, and DmgFireSmall64 Heat respectively) into the mixing vial displayed above Lavos' ability icons. Imbuement has no cost nor cooldown between uses.

  • Elemental imbuement is available by default to Lavos at Warframe Rank 0 without requiring his abilities to be fully unlocked.
  • Primary Elements are shown in the four smaller diamond-shaped icons below the mixing vial. When an ability button is held down, its diamond icon is briefly highlighted until the element is mixed in.
  • Combine with a different element to produce a Secondary Elemental damage type: DmgBlastSmall64 Blast (2 +4 ), DmgCorrosiveSmall64 Corrosive (1 +3 ), DmgGasSmall64 Gas (1 +4 ), DmgMagneticSmall64 Magnetic (2 +3 ), DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation (3 +4 ), and DmgViralSmall64 Viral (1 +2 ).
    • Inputs can be in any order, or the hotkeys can be held down together to instantly produce a Secondary Elemental damage type.
  • The Imbued Primary or Secondary Element is shown in the vial with a colorcoded emblem and plays a unique sound effect upon mixing.
  • With an element in the mixing vial, Lavos' next ability cast drains the vial to add the Primary or Secondary Elemental damage type, onto the chosen ability dealing an extra instance of damage and status proc.
    • The same Primary Elemental damage type can be imbued onto an ability that already inflicts that damage type (e.g. OphidianBite130xWhite Ophidian Bite imbued with DmgToxinSmall64 Toxin, VialRush130xWhite Vial Rush imbued with DmgColdSmall64 Cold, etc) to double the damage and status proc.
    • Imbued Primary Elemental damage types do not merge with the ability's innate damage type.
    • Non-damaging status effects inflicted by all of Lavos' abilities (DmgColdSmall64 Cold, DmgBlastSmall64 Blast, DmgCorrosiveSmall64 Corrosive, DmgMagneticSmall64 Magnetic, DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation, and DmgViralSmall64 Viral) will proc 3 stacks in a single application of elemental status.
    • Lavos' mixing vial is only cleared of its elemental contents upon imbuing an ability.
    • Elements can be imbued even if Lavos cannot use the ability.
  • Imbuement is only available from Lavos' original abilities, therefore a subsumed ability replacement from the Helminth system will disable the associated element on the ability button.
    • Imbuement also cannot be applied onto subsumed abilities.
<tabber>

Rank Bonuses

Unlike most Warframes, when Lavos ranks up he receives a special set of rank bonuses which are indicated at the top-left of the Warframe Upgrade screen:

  • +20 Health every three ranks, starting at rank 1.
  • +10 Shield every three ranks, starting at rank 2.
  • +10 Armor every three ranks, starting at rank 3.

At rank 30, this results in a total of:

  • +200 Health
  • +100 Shield
  • +100 Armor

Like a blood moon striding across the starlit night, VorunaIcon272 Voruna never hunts alone. Safeguarded by her four loyal wolves, she may freely invoke their protective passives anytime during a mission.

Hold down the ability button (default 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 ) to invoke 1 passive into the UI indicator above the ability icons. Wolf passives persist indefinitely until switched, undergoing a cooldown (Ulfrun's Descent), or revoked by holding down the ability key again; while a passive is selected, the corresponding wolf skull on Voruna's body glows with energy, as a flying wolf skull orbits around her.

  • ShroudofDynarIcon Shroud of Dynar increases Parkour velocity by 55%.
  • FangsofRakshIcon Fangs of Raksh grants complete resistance to new Status Effects.
  • Lycath'sHuntIcon Lycath's Hunt imbues Voruna's melee weapon with an additive 100% Heavy Attack Efficiency.
    • Since heavy attack efficiency is hard-capped to 90%, the extra 10% is only visible and viable when equipped with a Riven Mod that penalizes it.
  • Ulfrun'sDescentIcon Ulfrun's Descent has Ulfrun die in Voruna's place when she receives lethal damage, preventing bleedout, rendering her invulnerable for 3 seconds and restoring 100% of her shields and health. Ulfrun's passive undergoes a 60 second cooldown after his sacrifice or when swapped out.
  • Passives are only available from Voruna's original abilities. Therefore, a subsumed ability replacement from the Helminth system will disable the associated passive.
  • Passives are not disabled nor revoked when Voruna enters an ability-nullifying field such as from Nullifier Crewmen, or if she falls into an out-of-bounds zone.
