These festering sacs of pus and gas burst violently on impact.

The Pox are a thrown Infested weapon released in Update: The Silver Grove. Similar to the Torid, the Pox's projectiles release a toxic cloud upon coming into contact with a surface or enemy, making it ideal for large groups or area denial. However, its low magazine size and ammunition reserves mean that players must be mindful of their ammo.

NotesEdit

  • Compared to the Torid, the Pox can deal more damage and inflict status effects more quickly, but the Pox's spores will not stick to enemies and the cloud will only linger where the spores hit.[citation needed]
  • Pox has a noticeably bigger lingering cloud when Fulmination is equipped.

TipsEdit

  • As the Pox explode on contact with surfaces instead of sticking to them, adding Heat b Heat, Electricity b Electricity or Blast b Blast damage is recommended to keep enemies in the clouds for extended periods.
  • The high status chance of the Pox, along with its innate Toxin b Toxin damage makes it an effective tool to strip off enemy armor via Corrosive b Corrosive procs.
  • This weapon performs especially well in corridors and cramped spaces where enemies are forced to cluster together, and the stacked gas clouds can make short work of them.
    • Pox users should be mindful about their ammo reserves when using this tactic, however, because they might find themselves ganged up by enemies while trying to pick up ammo drops.

BugsEdit
