200% / 225% / 250% / 275% (maximum damage bonus)

Info
  • Chroma enters a state of primal rage, gaining Scorn when shields are hit and Fury when health is damaged.
    • Scorn increases Chroma's armor by 0.5% / 0.625% / 0.75% / 0.875% for every point of shields lost up to a maximum of 200% / 250% / 300% / 350%.
    • Fury increases Chroma's weapon bonus damage by 2% / 2.25% / 2.5% / 2.75% for every point of health lost up to a maximum of 200% / 225% / 250% / 275%.
    • Scorn, Fury, and conversion percentages are linearly affected by Ability Strength.
    • Scorn and Fury are additive bonuses stacking with the Warframe's armor and weapon's damage mods respectively.
      • E.g., with Intensify, Steel Fiber and maximum Scorn at rank 3, Chroma's armor will be at:
        Base Armor × (1 + Armor Mods + Scorn Modifier × (1 + Strength Mods)) =
        350 × (1 + 1.1 + 3.5 × (1 + 0.3)) = 2,327.5 (instead of 735 without the ability).
      • E.g., with Intensify, Serration and maximum Fury at rank 3, a weapon with 100 base damage will be at:
        Base Damage × (1 + Damage Mods + Fury Modifier × (1 + Strength Mods)) =
        100 × (1 + 1.65 + 2.75 × (1 + 0.3)) = 622.5 (instead of 265 without the ability).
        • Note that when calculating mod bonuses, elemental mods are calculated after damage mods and Fury's modifier.
    • Scorn and Fury are tracked from 0% to their maximum increase in the HUD next to Chroma's shield and health indicators.
      • Scorn and Fury will gradually increase each time shields or health are hit until they reach their maximum percentages. 400 shield points must be lost to maximize Scorn, and 100 health points must be lost to maximize Fury.
    • Hits on overshields count towards Scorn accumulation.
    • Shield drain from a Hijack payload counts towards Scorn accumulation.
  • The effects of Vex Armor last for 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 seconds.
  • Allies within a radius of 8 / 10 / 15 / 18 meters receive Vex Armor's effects.
  • Vex Armor is a one-handed action. As such, it can be used while performing various maneuvers and actions without interruption.
    • Vex Armor can be recast while active, retaining the existing buffs.
  • The ability has a casting animation time of 0.75 seconds.

Tips & Tricks
  • Explosive self-damaging weapons such as Ogris, Castanas, and Stug can allow you to damage yourself to gain Scorn and Fury while Vex Armor is active.
  • Equipping a rank 4 or higher Vigor mod will allow you to maximize Scorn armor bonus without requiring shields to recharge, as well as provide additional health.
  • Using an electric element Elemental Ward will allow you to maximize the Scorn armor bonus without having to equip any mods increasing your shields.
  • Equipping a Decaying Dragon Key to lower your shields can increase the likelihood of health damage at the loss of some of the Scorn Armor bonus due to the reduction of your shields.
