Question about elemental damage modifiers and weapons

I came to the experts for this question. So for instance we have void burn this week. I have my icebreaker with solar damage almost maxed out. I have a rare junk snipe with void damage. Would it be to my advantage to use the void damage snipe over the icebreaker with solar damage? thanks in advance

  • I didn't check which strike it is but it depends on the situation. If it's shanks or wizards then your icebreaker is what you want for sure. If they have arc or void shields that POS is going to do the job a little better. My math may be a bit off but you get 3X the damage when a burn is active (fairly certain for both sides of the fight). Using last week as an example: if the wizard wasn't a major/ultra I used my arc fusion rifle and rekt it, if it was an upgraded wizard I pulled out a fire weapon until the shield fell down then switched to my arc fusion rifle. Just make sure you have a void heavy weapon and some heavy ammo synthesis; you'll be able to do almost whatever you want.

  • Yes! The "burns" increase the damage you deal exponentially. If you need to take down their shields first though, switch your weapon accordingly, you should be fine.
