Getting hit from any source of attack that has heat such as firearms with heat or explosions from barrels or vehicles will cause your character or the enemy to be caught in flames. To remove this effect, do multiple combat rolls to extinguish the flames.


Some enemies will deploy healing stations that will heal their HP if they are within the AoE. You can destroy it by shooting the device. You can also deploy your own healing station when you use Rejuv Field.


Getting hit by energy based attacks or explosions will cause both the enemy and the chracter to be briefly impaired with their movements.


Digital damage comes from enemies that try to hack you. When you see a yellow dome that appear on your location, then that means there's a hacker type enemy nearby.
