Puncture b Puncture Damage is one of the three physical damage types. It's highly effective against armor and thus ideal against the Grineer, but the damage type suffers penalties against Corpus shielding.

Puncture b Puncture Damage applies the status effect Weakened, causing the victim to inflict 30% less damage over a duration of 6 seconds. Additional procs will only refresh the duration. Affected enemies will have a yellow aura. If the target is killed by an attack inflicting this proc they may have a large bloody hole where they were hit.

Puncture Damage WeaponsEdit

These weapons deal more than a majority of their physical damage as Puncture b Puncture. 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 Weakened more than Knockback or Bleed.
