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.png Damage from target Hitpoints.png Hitpoints.
  • max 1.2 Damage.png Damage from target Hitpoints.png Hitpoints.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The maximum effect is reached at 24 Hitpoints.png Hitpoints of the target unit and it is calculated after the enemy Armor.png Armour but before other reductions. This usually results in up to 8 Damage.png Damage at close range with Necron Warriors or Tomb Blades, making them quite effective against lone vehicles and buildings in early game.
