Fire is a status condition that causes periodic damage to the victim. The damage ticks are red, suggesting Normal damage, but Normal armor does not lessen the damage from fire and neither does Elemental armor. Rather, only Fire-resistant armor lessens the damage (and duration, and perhaps chances) of fire. When a burning knight tries to throw an offensive vial, the fire may break the vial, causing it to be wasted. Fire wears off after a few seconds. Before it wears off, it can be cured with a Remedy Capsule. In the Firestorm Citadel, fire can be cured by getting splashed with a water orb. Being frozen will also prematurely put out fire. Unlike Shock, Fire damage is not affected by poison.

Unlike Shock, Fire damage cannot be prevented by shielding.

Oil SlicksEdit

Status-Oil slick

A field of pristine oil slicks.

Oil slicks periodically dropped by Oilers or released from Oil Jars can catch fire. They become a temporary floor hazard if set on fire, and burn up after several seconds. Oil slicks can be set on fire by:

  • Ground-based fire attacks from other enemies (Gremlin Scorchers, Red Rovers, Salamanders)
  • A flaming Oiler's attack
  • Adjacent flaming oil slicks
  • A Fire-inflicted player or enemy walking over an Oil slick
  • A fire jar
  • And Charged shots from the Firotech Alchemer series (The oil only catches fire if the shot disappears over an Oil slick)

As such, an unprepared party can quickly be overwhelmed by a few Oilers and a Red Rover or Scorcher.

Poisonous Oil SlicksEdit

Poisonous Oil slicks periodically dropped by Toxoils and Giant Toxoils can catch fire too and can be set on fire for the same circumstances that the normal Oil Slick. Fortunately, these types of slicks can be seen in the Danger Mission: Compound 42 only. It can cause poison too.
