Was playing the sortie and both me and the other Nidus in my squad couldn't damage the Corrupted Crewmen with our Virulence abilities.
It would hit them but deal 0 damage to them if their shields were up

I assume you're talking about the first Sortie, with Enemy Physical Enhancement?

Because that's normal then, Virulence deals pure Puncture damage (Wiki is wrong in this case),
Shields are resistant to Puncture and the Sortie modifier pumps that resistance all the way to 100%.

Because, for some reason, those Physical and Elemental Enhancement modifiers
give an additive bonus to base resistances rather than a multiplicative one.

(sometimes even if they didnt have shields)

Not sure 'bout this one, maybe there was an Orokin Drone (Eximus) giving additional resistances to enemies or something.

Ah, that explains it! Still, could be clearer that's what's happening.
