Cold War is a 5 tier skill in Wilhelm's Hunter-Killer skill tree.

For the weapons with corrosive, incendiary, or shock status effects, it causes to apply an additional cryo status effect. A small compensation towards traditional cryo damage is made by slightly increasing Wilhelm's chance to apply the effect.

  • Though Venom Bolts in the same tree allows the Wolf drone to fire corrosive projectiles, these cannot apply the bonus cryo effect.
  • The bonus cryo effect may only be applied to an enemy who does not already have a status effect active.
    • This quality has an uncommon paradigm for elemental skills in that weapons with a weaker elemental effect chance benefit the greatest due to the interim period in which the bonus cryo effect has an additional opportunity to be applied.
  • Avid use of this skill causes a paradigm shift towards elemental damage.
  • Using the Vibra-Pulse with Cold War can cause the arcs from the Vibra-Pulse special effect to freeze targets struck by it.
