Warframe - How To Do Radiation Damage, Complete The Reactor Nightwave Challenge

Radiation Damage

Radiation damage in Warframe is a secondary elemental damage type. It is caused by mixing two primary element damage types. By mixing the primary damage types Electricity and Heat, we can cause radiation damage. Radiation damage is very effective against Alloy Armor and is the current best damage to do while hunting Eidolons.

To complete the Reactor Challenge, you need to kill 150 enemies with Radiation Damage.

How To Do Radiation Damage

Radiation Damage

To cause Radiation damage, you need to mix Heat and Electricity mods in your weapon build. Mixing these two damage types will cause your primary, secondary or melee weapon to do Radiation damage. As you can see in the image above, the Electricity and Heat mods interact to cause Radiation damage.

There are also some weapons in the game that will do innate Radiation damage. While it is easier to simply use mods to cause Radiation damage with any weapon you wish, it can be helpful to know which weapons in the game do specific damage types. As an example, by using an Electricity and a Heat mod on a weapon that already does Radiation damage, you will greatly increase the amount of Radiation damage it does.

  • Arca Plasmor (primary)
  • Battacor (primary)
  • Mutalist Quanta (primary)
  • Phantasma (primary)
  • Secura Penta (primary)
  • Cycron (secondary)
  • Detron (secondary)
  • Mara Detron (secondary)
  • Nukor (secondary)
  • Ocucor (secondary)
  • Secura Dual Cestra (secondary)
  • Staticor (secondary)
  • Dark Dagger (melee)
  • Dark Split-Sword (melee)
  • Dark Sword (melee)

Mirage's Prism attack, Nova's Anitmatter Drop, and Oberon's Hallowed Ground abilities all do Radiation damage as well. You should have no problem quickly wrapping up this challenge.
