Soaking is an effect that can be applied by certain weapons or submerging to deep water. Soaked players will continually shed droplets of accorded liquid. This liquid can have many different effects depending on what the liquid is. Some liquids can cure burning effect or removal of other liquids.

List of covered-associated weapons
Secondary Mad Milk
  • Mad Milk is a thrown weapon. Covering foes with Mad Milk inflicts a debuff, allowing any member on your team to heal by damaging an opponent under its effects.
  • The only ways to prematurely remove the effects of Mad Milk is by visiting a Resupply locker, by being submerged in water, or by being healed for an extended period of time.
  • Additionally, Mad Milk can be used to extinguish burning allies, including yourself, and easily nullify a Spy's Cloak and disguise.

Secondary Jarate
  • As well as Mad Milk, Jarate is a thrown weapon. It inflicts a temporary debuff upon its victims, causing all soaked enemies to take Mini-crit damage for 10 seconds.
  • Jarate also can be used to extinguish burning allies and nullify a Spy's Cloak and disguise.
Primary Sydney Sleeper
  • If a Sniper is zoomed in, the shot will apply a Jarate effect onto an enemy target, scaled up from 2 to 8 seconds depend on the charge.
  • A fully charged shot or headshot will apply a Jarate effect to multiple enemy targets in a radius, scaled up from 2 to 8 seconds depend on the charge.
  • The Jarate effect can extinguish allies in the same fashion that the Jarate can.
Sydney Sleeper
Melee Neon Annihilator
  • The Neon Annihilator deals guaranteed critical hits on wet targets, including those covered in Jarate, Mad Milk, swimming, or simply standing in water of any depth.
  • It is primarily an effective method for dealing with enemies in water, but players are also considered wet for five seconds after leaving a water source.
