Warframe – How to do Corrosive damage, complete The Meltdown Challenge

Heavily armored enemies giving you trouble? Stock up on Corrosive damage.


In this guide, we show you how to do Corrosive damage in Warframe, and how to quickly wrap up the Meltdown daily challenge.

Today’s Daily Nightwave Challenge in Warframe has you working on getting kills with Corrosive damage. Corrosive damage is a secondary elemental damage type that can be achieved by combing two primary damage types. You do this by using mods on your weapon, and it is a pretty easy challenge to wrap up. Corrosive damage can cause the Corrosion status effect, which will reduce the afflicted unit’s armor by 20 percent. Each additional stack of the status effect will reduce the armor by another 6 percent. The maximum number of stacks that can build up is 10, maxing out at 20 percent armor reduction. Each stack also has it’s own duration of 8 seconds, and new stacks do not refresh the timer on previously existing stacks.

How To Do Corrosive Damage

To get Corrosive damage on your weapon, you need to combine a mod that does Electrical damage, and a mod that does Toxin damage in the same build. Once you do this, the mods will combine to do Corrosive damage, as shown in the image above. There are several weapons in the game that do innate Corrosive damage, and while it is easier just to use mods to finish this Challenge, it is always helpful to know which weapons have built-in Corrosive damage, as this can then be increased by using the Electrical and Toxin damage mods.

  • Scourge
  • Stug
  • Synapse
  • Tysis
  • Cautacyst

This is pretty easy to Challenge to do, as you only need to get 150 kills with Corrosive damage. Just apply the Electrical and Toxin mods to your weapon of choice, load into a mission, and the kills will come pretty quickly! Best of luck, Tenno!
