Cold Damage Icon

Damage TypesCold damage is an elemental Damage Type available in Baldur's Gate 3. Representative of the aspects of chill, ice, and waterDamage TypesCold damage often serves as a counter to Damage TypesFire damage. Damage TypesCold has a strong association with conditions and effects that reduce Targets ground movement speed making it very useful for manipulating the environment of a battlefield and impeding melee attackers.

*Given the extensive support for Ice Surfaces, and in turn Water Surfaces, both they and aspects interacting with them will be treated as factors of Cold Damage for this page.
