Damage (Water)

From SRB2 Wiki

Player being hurt by slime with water damage.

Sector type 2, Damage (Water), is a sector type which damages the player unless the player has an Elemental Shield or a Bubble Shield. The difference between this and Damage (Electrical) is that it only works with water blocks, and that the player is only damaged when submerged deep enough (more than 28 fracunits) in the liquid. Since Attraction Shields disappear immediately upon contact with water blocks, they will not protect the player from the damage of this sector type. In NiGHTS levels, these sectors do not cause damage in 3D mode due to all damage being disabled; in 2D mode, they cause normal NiGHTS damage.

This special is notably used as the "slime damage" in Techno Legacy Zone. In this context, it is used on a translucent water FOF with a #00FF00Z colormap, GOOP01 flats and AFALL1 textures.
