Bomb

Bomb damage is done by a variety of explosive weapons and is additionally effective against buildings. The default damage is 50, with 0.1 AP multiplier, and a default stopping power of 0.5. It does 4x Damage to Plants and to impassable buildings such as Nutrient Paste Dispensers and 2x to passable buildings such as armchairs. Additionally, Walls specifically have an additional 2x multiplier, stacking with the previous 4x, for a total of 8x damage.

Burn

Identical to Flame except that it cannot ignite targets.

Demolish

Demolish damage is done by breach axes and is additionally effective against buildings. It does 10x Damage to buildings, but it otherwise identical to Blunt damage.

Flame

Flame damage has a default damage of 10 and typically has no armor penetration at all. If any damage is dealt by flame damage at all, i.e. it is not fully negated by protective apparel, there is a chance to ignite the pawn. This chance does not scale with the damage done i.e. a partial mitigation does not reduce the chance.

Thump

Thump damage is done by Thump cannon, and is exceptionally effective against buildings. The default damage is only 5, with 0 AP, however it does 4x Damage to Plants, 15x damage to impassable buildings such as Nutrient Paste Dispensors, 7.5x to passable buildings such as armchairs. Additionally, both walls and natural rock walls specifically have an additional 4x multiplier, stacking with the previous 15x, for a total of 60x damage.
