Poisoned is a status effect that may be inflicted when an organic unit is struck by Venom Rounds, Gas Grenades, Poison Spit, or Chyrssalid claws. There are some aliens, specifically the Andromedon, Viper, and Chryssalid that are immune to poison. The Faceless is not technically immune, however it's regeneration ability will neutralize the poison in the following turn.

A soldier who is carrying a Medikit or wearing a Hazmat Vest is immune to the effects of poison, with the exception of a Chryssalid's transformative venom. Psi Operatives who possess Fortress are similarly protected.
