Cryo Resistance reduces the magnitude of incoming cryo damage. The higher the player's cryo resistance, the less damage incurs from cryo-based attacks, such as from floater freezers, or from cryo-based weapons like the cryolator, cryogenic grenade, the cryo mine, and Crusader pistol. Scaling cryo resistance has been added on most encounterable NPCs and creatures, however options for the player are limited to the Warming Legendary armor and Warming Legendary power armor.
- Armor Penetration effects are universally applied, and will affect cryo resistance.[verification needed]
