The best way to inflict Toxic Damage is surely the Brain Rot ammo mod. However, locating the Brain Rot ammo mod might be a difficult task, as there is no specific space to find them.

Here are some places where you might find the Brain Rot ammo mod:

  1. Reward Rift
  2. Aether Cache
  3. Brain Rot ammo schematics
  4. Destroying Aether Nest

Remember that Brain Rot ammo mods can also be crafted via the specific Schematics found on the map. However, you must exfil safely and craft the item in the lobby before joining the next match. Also, make sure you've added the ammo mod in your backpack before starting matchmaking.
