Characteristics Edit

This weapon deals Corrosive b Corrosive damage.

Advantages:

  • Highest damage of all Scythe weapons, tied with the Reaper Prime.
  • Innate Corrosive b Corrosive damage – effective against Ferrite Armor and Fossilized Infested.
  • Charge attacks throws a toxic stream of Corrosive b Corrosive acid that covers surfaces and lingers for a while.
    • This attack deals damage, status, and critical hits to any enemy who lingers in the toxic pools.
    • Enemies stunned by these pools do not have their alert status changed; enemies can be damaged by the pools and still be killed for stealth kills as long as their stun animation is still playing.
      • This allows players to launch a pool, then launch up to 3 more charge attacks before the enemy can become alerted.
  • High status chance.
  • Comes with a Madurai Pol polarity.
  • Zenurik Pol stance polarity matches Stalking Fan.

Disadvantages:

NotesEdit

  • When performing a charge attack, the Caustacyst throws a toxic wave in the direction of the player's aim. This wave will travel up to 20 meters, dealing Corrosive b Corrosive damage to all enemies it hits. The wave will also leave behind a temporary trail on the ground that deals Corrosive b Corrosive damage to enemies that walk through it. Enemies hit by the wave are also staggered, priming them for melee finishers.
    • Charge attack wave range is not affected by Reach or Primed Reach.
    • The Charge attack wave seems to have innate punch through of an unknown range.
    • Charge attacks have a guaranteed chance to inflict a Slash b Slash proc (only in melee range).

TipsEdit

  • The Caustacyst is an excellent weapon against the Grineer, allowing for Corrosive b Corrosive and Viral b Viral to be used at the same time, as well as additional Heat b Heat to attack their health or Electricity b Electricity for extra stunning capabilities.
    • Alternatively, it can be paired with Radiation b Radiation for bonus damage against Alloy Armor, pairing with Corrosive b Corrosive's innate armor-peeling to allow for more general use against Grineer enemies.

TriviaEdit

  • This is the first melee weapon with innate Corrosive b Corrosive damage.
