Outward Wiki

In Outward, there are primarily 6 types of damage that can be inflicted on both enemies and the player.


All of these damage types except Physical are considered "elemental", and there are certain buffs which can be applied to only these types. Protection Protection applies only to Physical damage, while Barrier Barrier applies only to elemental damage types. In all other cases, physical behaves exactly the same as the elemental damage types.

There is also Raw Raw damage, sometimes referred to by players as "true" damage. It cannot be resisted against or boosted with any type-specific buffs or "elemental" buffs.

Finally, damage from falling, Bleeding and Infection is "typeless" damage, directly affecting the player's health without going through the damage-type system.
