Fungicide is a type of gas that is damaging to fungus and to objects composed of live fungal matter. fungicide can seep through walls and other occluding objects.

Sources

Common sources of fungicide, with their level and density, include:[1]

Source Gas Level Gas Density Reference
Fungicide pump.pngfungicide pump 1 4d104-40 (Avg: 22) in each cell that a pump projectile passes through
8d108-80 (Avg: 44) in each cell where a projectile hits a solid target
5 projectiles fired per shot, gas emissions from each projectile stack

Damage

The damage done by fungicide depends on the target.[8] For a more detailed breakdown of the types of targets listed here, refer to the Objects Affected section below.

  • Fungicide deals damage to mutated fungus and those with fungal infections. Mutated fungus more or less encompasses all fungus that are combat-capable and have faction associations, except broodpuffs.
  • Fungicide deals significantly increased damage to all other fungus, generally meaning any sessile fungus that are not capable of combat and do not have faction associations.
  • Fungicide deals significantly increased damage to objects composed of live fungal matter.
  • Fungicide deals no damage to anything else.

The following damage formulas are used to calculate defoliant damage:[8]

Formula Notes
Mutated fungus
( Density × GasLevel ) / 200
(rounded up)
Sessile fungus and fungal-matter
( 0.75 × GasLevel + 0.25 ) × Density
(rounded up)

In theory, this means that a typical cloud of defoliant gas (~100 density) will deal approximately:

  • 1 damage per turn to mutated fungus and creatures with fungal infections.
  • 100 damage per turn to sessile fungus or objects composed of live fungal matter.

In practice, gas damage is highly variable due to a significant amount of randomization involved in gas behavior. Gas is constantly moving between cells, dissipating over time, merging with other gas, and being affected by random calculations in the game engine. Its density, which is the main predictor of damage, is always changing. For more information about the mechanics of gas behavior, visit the Gas page.

The density of fungicide can get significantly higher than 100 if several sources of it are combined, such as multiple Fungicide grenade mk iii.pngfungicide grenade mk IIIs or successive shots from a Fungicide pump.pngfungicide pump. Because fungicide can seep through walls, however, it will not be contained by enclosed rooms or tight hallways - it will continue to spread and dissipate after it is released.
