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. In case of melee weapons, another 8x stealth damage multiplier is applied to the ticks if the Warframe is in a stealthed state.

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.
