A fragment of Stalker's War Sword, a symbol of his defeat

Broken War is a sword formed from a portion of the StalkerTwoGreatSword War greatsword, the weapon given to Stalker by the Sentient Hunhow. This broken version of War deals mostly Slash b Slash damage instead of War's Impact b Impact, making it better suited against flesh.

This weapon is a requisite for StalkerTwoGreatSword War.

NotesEdit

  • The listed Mastery Rank requirement only applies to the construction of additional copies of the Broken War. The copy of Broken War awarded at the end of The Second Dream is usable at any rank.
  • The hilt and blade required to craft Broken War are tradeable; its blueprint is not.
  • The weapon's default quick attack uses Mod TT 20pxVengeful Revenant's Lone Vengeance combo instead of the normal sword attack.
    • Even without having Vengeful Revenant equipped, it will be depicted as the current stance.
  • The Broken War is used to construct StalkerTwoGreatSword War, which will remove it from the inventory.
    • Because the Broken War received from completing The Second Dream quest comes with a free catalyst, it is recommended not to use it to craft War, as the pre-installed catalyst will not carry over into the crafted War. This is especially advisable if you plan to buy Hunhow's Gift in the future, as this will allow you to obtain both a Broken War and War with pre-installed catalysts and avoid having duplicates.

TriviaEdit

  • The Broken War is a piece of the larger StalkerTwoGreatSword War greatsword, which was split in two following the climax of The Second Dream quest, with the smaller piece torn being re-purposed as a one-handed sword.
  • If the energy color is left uncustomized, the lights along the blade correspond to the elemental damage present on the weapon.
    • The greater War's lights turn red with no elemental damage, similar to when the Shadow Stalker attacks the Tenno, while the Broken War stays blue as in its icon.
  • Prior to Hotfix 18.6.3, Broken War required War to craft and vice versa, making them the only two weapons to have recursive build requirements. This also meant that the only way players could own both weapons at the same time was to buy the Hunhow's Gift bundle, which includes War.
