Mutaplasmids are a new type of item which can be used to permanently alter specific attributes on existing modules.

  • Mutaplasmids can be found in Abyssal Deadspace
  • All quality levels can be found in any difficulty tier, though the chances improve dramatically at higher difficulties
  • When a Mutaplasmid is used on a module, both the Mutaplasmid and input module are consumed and an Abyssal Tech module is created

Mutaplasmids come in three quality variations:

  • Decayed: Lowest range of effect

  • Unstable: Largest range of effect

Each Mutaplasmid can only be used on a specific corresponding module group. The following groups have been added:

  • Cap is set at 150% increased damage for all Entropic Disintegrators
  • No falloff range
  • Deactivates if target is outside optimal range

The following Entropic Disintegrator variations have been added, and can all be found directly or via blueprints from Abyssal Deadspace:

  • Light Entropic Disintegrator I
  • Light Scoped Entropic Disintegrator
  • Light Compact Entropic Disintegrator
  • Light Entropic Disintegrator II

  • Baryon – Mid Range / Medium Damage
  • Meson – Long Range / Low Damage
