Magnetic Damage is one of the six secondary elemental damage types, composed of Cold and Electricity elements. It is very effective at taking down Corpus Shields, but is heavily mitigated by the Alloy Armor worn by many higher-level Grineer units.
The Magnetic status effect is Disrupt, which reduces the target's current shields and maximum shield capacity by 75% over a duration of 4 seconds. The damage of the disrupting shot is applied before the Magnetic proc reduces the shield. After the effect expires, the target's current and maximum shields will be restored while damage done during the proc translates directly onto the current shields.
Affected Tenno suffer additional effects: their HUDs will be disrupted, and lose 250 Energy over the 4 second duration, or 62.5 Energy per second. Magnetic procs will show blue rings matching the shape of the affected target moving from top to bottom.
