Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • Zero Slash b Slash damage and short reach makes this weapon ill-advised for use against the Infested, even when modded with elemental damage.
  • Ceramic Dagger seems to confer a much higher speed boost with slide attacks than most melee weapons.
  • When equipped, the Ceramic Dagger adds a 4th lunging stab to its normal attack combo, which propels the Warframe a good distance forward, which is useful in catching up to moving enemies. It also has a 100% chance of inflicting Slash b Slash bleed proc. This effect is lost if one uses the Mod TT 20pxPointed Wind stance, which replaces the lunge with a sweeping slash.
    • If the lunge lands behind an unalerted enemy, a stealth attack will be performed instead.


  • Prior to Update 22.20, the Ceramic Dagger shared its model with the Cronus Cronus, only scaled down and with a much lower-resolution texture. It was eventually given a similar-but-unique model that resembles a scaled-down Scimitar in shape. Despite this however, the weapon still shares its Arsenal icon with the Cronus.
  • The blueprint used to drop from Jupiter's boss J3-Golem, however this method of obtaining the blueprint is no longer available.
  • Ironically, despite having a weapon with an overly-curved blade that would be ideal for slashing but highly impractical for stabbing, the Ceramic Dagger deals mainly Puncture b Puncture and no Slash b Slash damage.
