Gauss is a trait in Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Relics of War.
Description[edit | edit source]
Gauss weapons vary in appearance from rifle-sized flayers to massive heavy gauss cannon. Unlike more conventional energy weapons, a gauss projector emits a molecular disassembling beam, reducing flesh, bone and even armour to its constituent atoms.
Effects[edit | edit source]
Scales the minimum damage with the hitpoints of the target unit.
- +5% min Damage from target Hitpoints.
- max 1.2 Damage from target Hitpoints.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
The maximum effect is reached at 24 Hitpoints of the target unit and it is calculated after the enemy Armour but before other reductions. This usually results in up to 8 Damage at close range with Necron Warriors or Tomb Blades, making them quite effective against lone vehicles and buildings in early game.
