But don't worry, the admin and editor team are aware of them and they will be resolved over the next few days as our Weapons Module goes through a much needed overhaul.
Sorry for any inconvenience!

Drifting Contact is a rare Melee mod that extends the duration of the Melee Combo Counter and increases status chance.


Rank Combo Duration Status chance Cost
0 +2.5 sec +10% 2
1 +5 sec +20% 3
2 +7.5 sec +30% 4
3 +10 sec +40% 5


  • Drifting Contact is additive with similar mods. For example, a Galatine.png Galatine with a max rank Drifting Contact and Mod TT 20px.png Melee Prowess will have a 20% × (1 + 40% + 90%) = 46% status chance.
  • Obtained from medium Nightmare Missions, which can be found on Phobos, Jupiter, Saturn, Void, Lua, Europa, Ceres and Kuva Fortress.
  • At max rank, Drifting Contact increases the total melee combo counter time to 15 seconds.
    • Combined with Mod TT 20px.png Body Count and Mod TT 20px.png Gladiator Rush, the counter time is increased to 33 seconds.
    • With "Power Spike" (Naramon Focus node) the Melee Combo Counter decreases by a certain amount (at Rank 1, 20) each time that the Counter would run out. So, with a maxed Drifting Contact, it decreases the Counter every 13 seconds. Without mods, the Counter gets decreased every 3 seconds.
  • Can be stacked with Mod TT 20px.png Melee Prowess, Mod TT 20px.png Volcanic Edge, Mod TT 20px.png Vicious Frost, Mod TT 20px.png Voltaic Strike and Mod TT 20px.png Virulent Scourge for a total of 295% increase in Status Chance. On weapons with at least 26% base Status Chance, this allows them to achieve a total Status Chance value of 100%, allowing every strike to deal Status Effect proc. On weapons with 27% base Status Chance Mod TT 20px.png Melee Prowess is no longer needed to achieve the 100% Status Chance value.
    • Mod TT 20px.png Weeping Wounds can further increase the Status Chance depending on the Melee Combo Counter.
  • Works well with other mods affecting Melee Combos like Mod TT 20px.png Weeping Wounds, Mod TT 20px.png Body Count, Mod TT 20px.png Gladiator Rush, Mod TT 20px.png Blood Rush, Mod TT 20px.png Rising Storm and Mod TT 20px.png Surging Dash.
