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.

—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.png Frost's IceWave130xDark.png 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. See below for information on which status effects are associated with which damage types.

For example, a weapon such as an unmodified CrpElectroMag.png Staticor deals solely DmgRadiationSmall64.png 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 DmgHeatSmall64.png Heat damage from his GrineerFlameThrower.png Ignis. Similarly, enemies are also able to inflict physical procs such as Bleeding (associated with DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage) bypassing the player's armor.

Empyrean[]

Main article: Damage#Empyrean

Empyrean gamemode and Railjacks use a slightly altered system of the currently existing damage system. Arch-guns and Arch-melees 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.png Blast, DmgCorrosiveSmall64.png Corrosive, DmgGasSmall64.png Gas, DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic, DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation, and DmgViralSmall64.png Viral) do not have altered status effects and cannot proc against space enemies, but Arch-guns and Arch-melees 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 Point of Interests personnel, who will take damage and status as per normal.

Damage Type Empyrean-only Status Effects
DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact Concuss
Crew within a gunship have reduced aim and damage for 6 seconds. Additional procs refresh duration.
DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture Decompress

Target ship's weapons are disabled and it slows down to a complete stop. Lasts for 6 seconds. Additional procs refresh duration.
DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity Scramble
Target ship spirals erratically for 6 seconds, being unable to attack while moving in a straight line. Additional procs refresh duration.
DmgHeatSmall64.png Heat Sear
Target ship receives damage over time for 6 seconds. Additional procs increase damage dealt over time.
DmgToxinSmall64.png 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.png Corrosive procs are valued highly against heavily armored foes, but DmgMagneticSmall64.png 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.png Rifle Aptitude. One can also increase the number of projectiles fired through multishot mods such as Mod TT 20px.png 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.png Strun's highest physical damage type is DmgImpactSmall64.png 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.png 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.png Impact, 5 DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture, 10 DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash, 25 DmgHeatSmall64.png Heat, and 50 DmgCorrosiveSmall64.png 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.png 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

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.png 1.65) × 0.35 × (1 + Mod TT 20px.png 0.3) ^2 = 156.7475

Status Duration[]

Photo-4.png
“It's taking longer than I calculated.”
This page is actively being worked on and may not be completely correct. Please assist in making this page accurate.
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.png 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.png Impact Stagger -
DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture Weakened -
DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash Bleed -
DmgColdSmall64.png Cold Freeze -
DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity Stun Tesla Chain
DmgHeatSmall64.png Heat Ignite Panic animation occurs (but no flame)
DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin Poison -
DmgBlastSmall64.png Blast Inaccuracy -
DmgCorrosiveSmall64.png Corrosive Corrosion -
DmgGasSmall64.png Gas Toxin Cloud -
DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic Increased shield damage Visual effects
DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation Confusion -
DmgViralSmall64.png 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.png Electricity and DmgGasSmall64.png 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.

Damage Tick and Proc Duration
Time From Initial Proc 0s 1s 2s 3s 4s 5s 6s
Damage Tick Occurred? DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️
DmgHeatSmall64.png Heat ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️
DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️
DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️
DmgGasSmall64.png Gas ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️

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 WraithStrun.png 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.png 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.

Purifying himself from all ailments, LavosIcon272.png Lavos cleanses all active negative Status Effects and gains status immunity for 10 seconds upon collecting an Energy or Universal Orb. Lavos can only collect a single Energy or Universal Orb every 5 seconds.

  • Passive values is not affected by Mods.
  • 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.png Synth Fiber, all nearby Health, Energy and Universal Orbs will be collected, bypassing Lavos' innate orb pickup cooldown entirely.

Special Casting

Stats and Modding[]

LavosIcon272.png 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 Ability Efficiency stat will instead affect the cooldown reduction effect from TransmutationProbe130xDark.png Transmutation Probe.

  • Mods which convert energy spent on abilities to shields, such as Mod TT 20px.png 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.png Equilibrium, Mod TT 20px.png Energy Conversion, and ArcaneEnergize64x.png 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. Roar130xDark.png 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.png Piercing Roar).
    • On channeled abilities (e.g. Gloom130xDark.png Gloom), they instead have a 12 second base duration, affected by Ability Duration.

The 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.

Lavos also possesses a Rank Up Bonus on his Armor stat, yielding +50% at Warframe Rank 30.

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.png Toxin, DmgColdSmall64.png Cold, DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity, and DmgHeatSmall64.png 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.png Blast (2 +4 ), DmgCorrosiveSmall64.png Corrosive (1 +3 ), DmgGasSmall64.png Gas (1 +4 ), DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic (2 +3 ), DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation (3 +4 ), and DmgViralSmall64.png 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. OphidianBite130xDark.png Ophidian Bite imbued with DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin, VialRush130xDark.png Vial Rush imbued with DmgColdSmall64.png 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.png Cold, DmgBlastSmall64.png Blast, DmgCorrosiveSmall64.png Corrosive, DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic, DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation, and DmgViralSmall64.png 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.

Trivia[]

  • Prior to Update 25.7 (2019-08-29), a status effect's duration can be increased or decreased, along with the total number of ticks in the case of damage-over-time procs, if the target's speed is altered by a Warframe power (such as MolecularPrime130xDark.png Molecular Prime or RestRage130xDark.png Rest & Rage) according to the following formulas:
    • For slowing effects: Effective status duration = (base status duration) ÷ (1 − slow % in decimals)
    • For speeding effects: Effective status duration = (base status duration) ÷ (1 + speed up % in decimals)
  • Prior to Update 27.2 (2020-03-05), physical procs were weighted four times more than elemental ones.
  • Prior to Update 27.2 (2020-03-05), shotguns' status chance per pellet were calculated differently, instead of being the exact status chance shown in the Arsenal: Chance per Pellet = 1 − (1 − Status Chance)(1 ÷ Pellet Count)
    • In other words, the status chance shown in the Arsenal represented the calculated probability that at least one of the weapon's pellets will proc.
    • This means that shotguns that could reach 100% status chance in the Arsenal (before Multishot mods) benefit significantly from a status build since each pellet will proc as a result of the above equation.
    • However, a shotgun that only reaches shy of 100% status chance when modded will see significantly diminished results.
      • For example, a 99% status chance on a 10 pellet weapon will result in a 36.9% status chance per pellet.

Talking About Status Sec And What Over 100% Status Means (Warframe)

Patch History[]

Update 27.2 (2020-03-05)

Damage-Type Changes
  • Slash Status now does not bypass Shields and instead deals damage over time to Shields. Slash Status still bypasses Armor.
  • Toxin Damage used to apply to Armor with a 25% bonus. Now it is neutral. For role distinction, Toxin bypasses Shields (but not Armor) where as Slash Status bypasses Armor but not Shields.
Greater than 100% Status having meaning

Years ago we added Orange and Red Critical Damage numbers when you land a Critical with greater than 100%. For years, Status being greater than 100% has done nothing except guarantee Status - which is good, just not an added incentive to go over 100%. We are changing that this update.

When you hit a Status Chance greater than 100%, a single damage instance will be able to create two Status Effects. This means if you have a Shot with 200% Status Chance modded with both Blast and Toxin Damage, that single shot will result in both Status Effects!

It is worth noting we are fixing a UI inconsistency that is ‘Display Only’. Right now the Arsenal shows Status Chance affected by Multishot, which makes reading the new >100% value confusing. For example, the Arsenal might say 120% but really the Status Chance is 80%. We don’t have Multishot affect any Critical Stats (Chance or Multiplier), so we are fixing this display inconsistency. Multishot now has its own Stat.

Shotguns have a unique Role here based on a very patch-work history with how they interact with Status Chance. A Shotgun that shoots 99% Status Chance would give you 35% (roughly) status per pellet. 100% Status Gives you 100% Status per pellet. This huge jump in performance happens with just a 1% gain - why? Well, to answer that we have to look at our choice to make what the UI conveys reality. It would feel broken to shoot a Shotgun with 100% Status and not see a perfect spread of Effects. In reality, to make Status consistent we have to treat Shotguns as a special case.

Shotguns as a special case means we have buffed the Status Chance of all Shotguns by x3 or greater. The UI now behaves to show the reality that you are determining Status Chance per pellet.

Stacking Status Effects

But wait - THERE’S MORE! In addition to being able to achieve two Status Effects on a single shot with >100% Status, we are also adding new meaning if you get a duplicate Status Effect on an enemy overall.

This section will outline exactly what this means for each Status type, including information on how multiple Status Effects behaved with stacking prior to this Hotfix:

  • DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact: Repeat single-target Impact Status Effects will escalate the efficacy of the Impact Status (removed previous change of adding Ragdoll as maximum Stagger consequence).
  • DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture: The first Puncture Status Effect has an enemy deal 30% less Damage. Subsequent Puncture Status add +5% weakening, leading to up to 75% (capped). Each Puncture Status has a duration of 6 Seconds.
  • DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash: Each Slash Status has its own duration, but now we only show a maximum of 10 damage numbers in the HUD, damage is unaffected, but reducing how many damage events we show helps with performance
  • DmgColdSmall64.png Cold: The first Cold Status Effect deals 25% slow. Subsequent Cold Status Effects deal +5% slow for a total of 70% slow at 10 procs. Each Cold Status has a duration of 6 seconds.
  • DmgHeatSmall64.png Heat: No Change.
  • DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin: See Slash, plus the base duration of a Toxin Status Effect now matches Slash for 6 seconds.
  • DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity: AoE Electric Damage that is part of the Status Effect can now reoccur while the target is still under the stun animation of another Electric Status Effect.
  • DmgBlastSmall64.png Blast: Grants the Blast Status Effect a single target. Blast Status reduces enemy accuracy by 30% base. Subsequent Blast Status Effects add +5% inaccuracy for for 75% total at 10 stacks. Each Blast Status has a 6 second Duration.
  • DmgCorrosiveSmall64.png Corrosive: The first Corrosive Status Effect strips 26% Armor. Subsequent Corrosive Status Effects strip 6% more Armor, leading up to 80% Armor removal. Each Corrosive Status Effect lasts 8 seconds. Note: Corrosive was the only Status with infinite Duration and 100% Efficacy toward a defensive stat. This was necessary to some based on how Armor Scaled. We feel our rebalancing efforts need a differently behaving Corrosive to balance out all Status overall.
  • DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation: The first Radiation Status Effect has an enemy deal 100% Damage to allies. Subsequent Radiation Status adds +50% damage, leading to up to 550% (capped). Each Radiation Status Effect has a duration of 12 seconds.
  • DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic: New Status Effect entirely: enhanced Damage! First Magnetic Status Effect deals 100% additional Shield damage, subsequent Magnetic Status add +25% for a total of 325% (capped). Enemies under a Magnetic Status Effect cannot regenerate Shields. Magnetic Status Duration is now 6 seconds.
  • DmgViralSmall64.png Viral: New Status Effect entirely: enhanced Damage! First Viral Status Effect deals 100% additional Health damage, subsequent Viral Status add +25% for a total of 325% (capped).
    • Note: Before Viral would halve a target’s health pool and simply refresh the duration. Now it deals 2x Damage to Health, and can scale up to 4.5x Damage on repeat Status Effects.
  • DmgGasSmall64.png Gas: The base duration of a Gas Status Effect now matches Slash for 6 seconds. No longer does AoE with forced Poison Status Effect (resulting in Poison DoT for enemies in radius), instead it does AoE DoT Gas damage around the target.

Players - aka Tenno - can only have a Maximum of 1 Stack on them - you cannot receive Stacked Status Effects as a player from enemies, fear not!

Why: The inclusion of enhanced or different stacking of Duplicate Status Effects is one to refresh the appeal of Status.

In addition, we’ve removed 0.25x Multiplier for Elemental Status Effects, meaning all Elemental Status Effects are 4x more likely.

Why: Critical has long been king - and while we are leaving Critical as is, our goal is to bring Status into the Arsenals in a new light for all Primary, Secondary, and Melee weapons. Our long-term goal with this change is to build upon this series of changes to eventually allow Status to impact bigger threats like Liches and Eidolons.

Update 27.1 (2020-02-04)

  • Fixed projectile explosion & embed damage not properly using Status Chance upgrades.

Update 25.7 (2019-08-29)

  • Reduced Status Effect light FX intensity further to compensate for stacking procs (Gas multiprocs, etc.)
  • If you freeze enemies with things like Frost, Atlas, or Gara’s abilities, you can now immediately apply other Status Effects! Before these powers would prevent Status Effects from being added. Read more on that here: https://forums.warframe.com/topic/1119134-cold-status-effects-how-they-block-new-status-effects-coming-changes/
  • Fixed Status FX not applying to ragdolled enemies.
  • Fixed sometimes seeing duplicate corpses if the enemy died from a Slash Status Effect.

Hotfix 11.0.2 (2013-11-20)

  • Added more visibilty to Proc/status on enemies when dealing damage. Proc/status icons added to damage numbers.

Update 11.0 (2013-11-20)
