Gas b Gas Damage is one of the six secondary elemental damage types, composed of Heat b Heat and Toxin b Toxin elements. It is particularly effective against light Infested types, but deals lower damage to Grineer and Corpus bodies.

Gas b Gas damage's status effect is Poison Cloud, which applies two unique instances of Toxin b Toxin damage (notably, not Gas b Gas damage) on the target and all enemies within 3 meters of the hitpoint:

  • Instance 1) Immediate damage equal to (Base Damage  + Toxin Damage) ÷ 2.
  • Instance 2) 9 ticks of damage over 8 seconds, each equal to the weapon's total Toxin b Toxin damage.

Because both instances of the Gas b Gas proc include the weapon's Toxin b Toxin damage, emphasizing on Toxin b Toxin mods will have a greater effect than Heat b Heat mods.

Multiple instances of the effect can stack on the same target with each instance having its own timer.

Mods adding base or Toxin b Toxin damage and combo multipliers will increase the damage of the Poison ticks while mods increasing Heat b Heat damage will not. If a proc occurs together with a headshot and/or critical hit, the ticks are also affected by their respective multipliers.

Because the damage from this status effect is Toxin b Toxin and not Gas b Gas, it can bypass Shields / Proto Shields and deal increased damage against Ferrite Armor enemies which compensates for the damage penalty against Corpus Flesh and Grineer Cloned Flesh up to a certain degree.
