Impact Damage is one of the three physical damage types. Impact damage is effective at quickly draining Corpus shields, but it does comparatively less to bodies themselves. It does normal damage against the Infested.
The status effect of Impact damage is Knockback, causing the targets to briefly stagger, wasting their precious moments recovering instead of fighting. This status effect is immediately removed from the target's HUD after the effect is applied. If the target is killed during an Impact proc, their corpse will be ragdolled, no matter how low Impact the weapon has.
|Grineer Health||Impact Modifier||Corpus Health||Impact Modifier||Infested Health||Impact Modifier|
|Ferrite Armor||Shield||+50%||Infested Flesh|
|Alloy Armor||Proto Shield||+15%||Fossilized|
These weapons deal more than a majority of their physical damage as Impact. The damage ratio is important for physical damage status effects, because the game weights the likelihood of which proc occurs according to physical damage ratio. Hence, these weapons proc Knockback more than Bleed or Weakened.
