Poison capsule being deployed against some trees. Note the size of the cloud created.

A basic capsule that creates a large, long-lasting cloud of at the target area, dealing 320 poison damage over 20s, the damage from multiple poison capsules stacks. This is one of the most effective ways of removing Trees.

Poison capsules can be used to effectively kill Worms as they are stationary. This technique is a relatively safe and cheap way to eliminate clusters of worms - it takes 3 poison capsules to kill a Big Worm and the capsules can be thrown from outside the Big Worm's spitting range. Since Spawners are not affected by poison damage, Poison capsules are useless against them.

Poison Capsules do not harm the player's structures, robots or vehicles, but do harm the player unless he is in a vehicle. Poison Capsules are particularly effective when deployed from the Tank as the Tank can park inside a cloud of poison to lure enemies to their death.

Damage

The Poison Cloud deals 8 poison damage twice a second and lasts for 20s, a maximum of 320 damage.
