CharacteristicsEdit

This weapon deals primarily Toxin b Toxin damage.

Advantages:

  • Innate Toxin b Toxin damage.
  • Deals damage in an AoE cone (much like the Ignis) that hits all enemies in it, making it excellent at decimating large groups and gives it an extremely high damage potential.
  • One Naramon Pol polarity slot.
  • Procs Toxin b Toxin 100% of the time, even when Toxin b Toxin is combined with another element.
    • This can be used to apply two elemental DoTs at the same time.
  • Can use the Embolist-exclusive Eroding Blight mod.

Disadvantages:

  • Very short range (6m).
  • Expends ammo rapidly.
  • Toxin b Toxin damage deals 25% less to Robotics.
  • Low critical chance.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit

NotesEdit

  • The projectile creates a toxin cloud on whatever surface it hits, this is purely cosmetic and does no additional damage, staying for less than a second.
  • Seeker (punch through) does not affect the Embolist since it can already punch through up to its maximum range.
  • Holding down the fire button while using Shade will cloak you if enemies are nearby, letting you potentially deal high damage without retaliation. 
  • Although stated as being fixed, enemies can still occasionally be dealt extra damage while ragdolled.
  • Can convert into a single target, infinite range weapon with Volt's Electric Shield, however there is a bug where you can injure yourself while doing this and you can potentially kill yourself very quickly.

TipsEdit

  • Vortex is the most effective way to use the Embolist to get rid of enemies, as it will hit the entire group at once.
  • Be sure to convert the Toxin b Toxin damage to another type when fighting Infested or Robotics as the damage will be reduced on these enemies.
  • As the Embolist is primarily a close range weapon that benefits from area of effect, Magnum Force can be beneficial in increasing both its damage and its spread.
  • The Embolist is a weapon designed to take down crowds of enemies, and becomes more effective the more enemies it hit's in it's area of effect. The Embolist only begins to outmatch other secondaries when this is considered.

TriviaEdit

  • This item was added in Update 10.
  • An embolism refers to the lodging of an embolus, such as a blood clot or gas bubble. It can cause a circulatory blockage which affects a different part of the body away from the actual site of the blockage.
  • The visual effect of the Embolist resembles the special attack of the Nauseous Crawler, indicating that this weapon may be a part of said Infested or derived from it. However, apart from the similar attack appearance there are no shared properties.
  • The 'tail' on this weapon moves.
  • Has the highest mastery level requirement in-game at mastery level 8. Before Update 10 the highest Mastery level needed to make a weapon was 7.
  • When reloading, the Embolist appears to use the animations (and sound) associated with the Grakata or Ignis.

BugsEdit

  • When given to a Rescue target, the cloud released when fired will be the Embolists default energy color, as opposed to the customized one shown on the weapon itself.

MediaEdit

  • Embolist
  • Embolist in the Codex
