Damage Modifiers

From UFOpaedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A damage modifier is a percentage value that alters base damage when calculating damage. Other ways to interpret this include damage multiplier, damage susceptibility, damage resistance, damage vulnerability, etc.

Every unit in the game is assigned an armour class, with each class containing a table of modifiers that determine how well it absorbs the various damage types.

The damage percentages start at 100% for unaltered damage. Values over 100% indicate more damage will be taken, while values under 100% mean less damage is taken.

To summarize re: the all important X-COM armor:

  • AP, HE, Laser, and Plasma: All types of X-COM armor have full/normal (100%) susceptibility to these types of damage
  • Stun: Personal Armor has 90% susceptibility to stun, while Power/Flying Suits have 80% to stun. (Less than 100% is better.)
  • Incendiary: Power and Flying Armor are completely resistant to Incendiary.
