Scarlet Pincers
+90% Garnet Damage
5% Smokescreen Cooldown Reduction
Maximum Level: 10

  • Increases Garnet Damage granted by mutations by 90% per level.
  • The very first level when you unlock gives you a double bonus, so you start with 180%
  • Mutation damage adds up into one big bonus, so adding this 90% to an existing bonus of 500% would total 590%.
  • The genes Mutation Infusion multiply this coloured damage by 10% per gene, to a maximum of 110%.
  • The Gene Lab's Mutation Specialization further add to this multiplication by 5% per level, with no maximum,
  • Decreases the cooldown of ability Smokescreen by 5% per level.
  • The default cooldown is 30 minutes (1800 seconds)
  • When maxed out, you would have 990% bonus mutation damage for Garnet crabs and queens (multiplied by bonuses described above), and the cooldown on Smokescreen would be cut in half.


When combined with the ability duration mutation - Verdant Wings Carapace at level 290 - you will have "Permanent Smokescreen" which isn't a bad thing to have as it makes sure everything is doing critical damage.
