While fighting hordes of enemies, it is important to have a clear idea of the different damage types in the game. Since different types of damage have their own unique effects on the enemies, understanding all the types is crucial to utilize them to their max. These mechanics play an important role as you continue to progress further into the depths of the caverns.

Cold Damage

  • Effects: Slows down enemies and also freezes them in place. Similar to the Scout’s Grenade.

  • Strategic Use: Great for controlling large groups of enemies and making them easier to take down.

Fire Damage

  • Effect: Inflicts damage over time due to the burning effect.

  • Strategic Use: Wise to use on enemies with a larger pool of health, as more damage is done over time.

Acid Damage

  • Effect: Applies a debuff on enemies, making them take more damage to regular attacks.

  • Strategic Use: Focusing fire on enemies who are weakened because of the Acid Damage effect. Good for large single targets and swarms of smaller enemies.

Plasma Damage

  • Effect: Fires projectiles that bounce off walls and enemies while dealing damage.

  • Strategic Use: Using Plasma Damage is especially effective in situations where you are surrounded by a large number of enemies or have lots of surfaces around you from where the plasma can bounce off, dealing tons of damage.

Electric Damage

  • Effect: Releases electricity that channels through multiple enemies and damages everyone. It boosts critical damage by a large margin.

  • Strategic Use: This is also effective when you are surrounded by many enemies. Since the electricity spreads through a swarm, a large amount of damage can be done in situations like this.
