Tier 6 Planets

Deadly Heat is a planet hazard status effect found on Tier 6 Planets. It deals 5 damage every 0.5 seconds to the player while they are standing on ground. This damage can be avoided in the short term by hanging from the ceiling with ropes or a Grappling Hook or by placing down a nonhazardous liquid and swimming away from the bottom; however, Deadly Heat is still inconvenient because many planetary activities require both hands to complete, preventing the player from hanging on rope during these activities (liquid pools take time to set up and are not practical everywhere); consequentially, the player will have to expend many Medical Kits, Bandages or Nanowrap Bandages over time to counteract the health drain.

If using a mech on a planet or in a space encounter that inflicts Deadly Heat and the mech body is not resistant to it, S.A.I.L. will prompt you with a message: "WARNING! Your vehicle is not certified for this environment. Disregarding this warning may cause pilot death and/or invalidation of vehicle warranty." The mech will drain 30 more MJ of energy per second on natural tier 6 planets per second without the proper body.

The player can protect themselves by equipping a Cooling EPP Upgrade. If using a mech, Solarium-tier bodies are completely resistant to Deadly Heat.

Once protected players are completely immune to this debuff.
