A measure of strong poison.

Poison is a liquid that can be gathered using the Matter Manipulator. It's colored green and will apply the poison status effect to characters when touched.

Poison Antidote can make players immune from the poison status effect for 5 minutes at a time. Players may also equip the Poison Resist Augment to become immune to it.

Poison can be found on the surface of Tropical planets and as a poison ocean on Toxic planets. Underground it is in many mini-biomes, such as Cell Caves and Luminous Caves. It can also be found in dungeons such as Old Sewers and Apex Test Facilities.

The best place to collect Poison is on Toxic planets or at the final mission with the Ruin.

Status Effects

Liquid interactions:

When Poison comes into contact with the lava ocean at the core of most planets, it evaporates into nothingness.

Adding poison to a body of Water will cause the water to gradually turn into poison. However, this does not work on any Ocean liquids.

When poison is added to Slime, Coconut Milk, Lava or Oil, it will turn into the liquid it is added to until said liquid completely fills every block it's in. Then the poison will form a new layer on top.

When poison is added to Swamp Water or Healing Water, it will immediately form a new layer on top without interacting.
