Viral b Viral Damage is one of the six secondary elemental damage types, composed of Cold b Cold and Toxin b Toxin elements. It deals increased damage against IconGrineerBGrineer and IconCorpusBCorpus bodies, but reduced damage to most light Infestation bInfested foes.

The Viral b Viral status effect is Virus, which reduces a target's current and maximum health to 50% for 6 seconds. The damage of the infecting shot is applied before[1] the Viral b Viral proc reduces the health. Multiple procs do not reduce the health further, but only serve to refresh the time spent with halved health.

The health lost by any type of enemy due to the proc is restored after the effect ends. For example:

1 Proc, 50 Viral b Viral Damage 2 Procs (within 6 seconds), 50 Viral b Viral Damage (each)
  1. Target's original health is 500/500.
  2. Damage occurs : 450/500.
  3. Viral b Viral proc occurs: 225/250.
  4. Once the proc wears off, health returns to: 450/500.
  1. Target's original health is 500/500.
  2. Damage occurs : 450/500.
  3. Viral b Viral proc occurs: 225/250.
  4. Second damage occurs, proc refreshes: 175/250.
  5. Once the proc wears off, health becomes: 400/500.
