About Armor Piercing


Question

Greetings,

 

I just would like some tips about armor pierce mods. I have understand they are really effective on normal weapons against armored and heavy armored target like gringeer, ancients and boss.

 

My question is : Does it add some bonus damage against those enemies when applied on weapons which has innate armore piercing like Abotlo, boltor, Dualether autoattack (my current set)

 

Thanks !)

 

:)

AP mod doesn't increase the % of piercing by you weapon....Instead AP acts just like all other elemental damage mods....

And deals seperate dmg like fire,freeze etc

Armor Piercing is considered a Elemental status in Warframe.

 

If you have FANG (innate piercing) and you add Sundering Strike (melee piercing) you will have 3 different damage.

 

1st Damage: Non-elemental Damage

2nd Damage: Elemental Damage - Innate Armor Piercing

3rd Damage: Elemental Damage - Sundering Strike Damage

Um, actually, you'll only see 2 different damage types;

 

AP damage is dealt first, =to the modified weapon damage * mod %age

then normal damage is dealt, =to the modified weapon damage.

 

There is no non-elemental damage thats seperate from the innate armor piercing damage, they're one and the same.

 

Oh, ok thanks! SO the mod is still good with innate armor piercing weapon if i undurstand well!

Yep, its great, easily the best +elemental damage mod.
