Gas Damage Sucks Against Everything

''Very effective against infested''

Gas is THE WORST possible elemental type against the Infested, thanks to the different auras of Ancient units.

 

Toxic Ancients grant 90% damage resistance to Toxin and Gas damage for all nearby Infested. Ancient Disrupters grant 90% damage resistance to AoE attacks, in this case, Gas element's AoE Toxin Proc (which's damage is already reduced by the aura of the Toxic Ancients). Ultimately, Ancient Healers grant a general damage reduction.

 

Suggestion: Buff the Gas damage to make it actually useful against SOMETHING!

 

Make Ancients weak to Gas and light infested weak to Corrosive. Also, Toxic Ancients SHOULD NOT reduce Gas damage. This would encourage many more people to use Gas damage in infestation missions.

RIP Gas Damage

It's funny because Toxic Ancient aura not resist, but nullify the proc damage at all.

 

 

There's a prime example how ''great'' Gas is against Infested.

While their spawnrate is a bit high, ancients are far from representing the entirety of the infested faction(all but the ancients, lephantis, more? are consired light infested and take a delicious amount of damage from gas)

 

Do 10 waves of ODD and you already have more Ancient spawns than light infested spawns.

No matter what you say, light infested gets killed and annihilated by gas damage. Like someone else wrote, the problem is only the heavier infested, and yes if you do OD, you are gonna meet alot of Ancients. That is the fact of the matter...
So the title is misleading since DE know all to well about which Damage is the best against the factions. After all, it was them who created the damage, and not you?

Umm, gas does 75% extra damage to light infested?

 

Uh, this.

 

Gas is extremely effective against Infested. Yes, Ancients are more effected by Corrossive, but Gas is the best thing to use against light infested (unless you're Ember. Then you wanna use Fire+Accelerant, or if you can, Corrossive+Fire+Accelerant).

 

Best setup is a high powered weapon (revolvers, snipers, bows) with Corrosive for ancients, and an automatic/high RoF weapon (Automatic rifles/smgs/beam style weapons) with Gas for light infested.

 

So...seems DE actually does know what they're talking about. /thread.

This too.

That's the damage resist auras, not an innate resistance. 

 

Gas gets bonus damage against light infested, and suffers no penalty against heavy infested.Combine it with a high base damage weapon like Marelok and it's arguably the best element for use against infested because of its AoE.
