Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Drifting Contact is additive with similar mods. For example, a Galatine o.png Galatine with a max rank Drifting Contact and Mod TT 20px.pngMelee 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.pngBody Count and Mod TT 20px.pngGladiator 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.pngMelee Prowess, Mod TT 20px.pngVolcanic Edge, Mod TT 20px.pngVicious Frost, Mod TT 20px.pngVoltaic Strike and Mod TT 20px.pngVirulent 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.pngMelee Prowess is no longer needed to achieve the 100% Status Chance value.
    • Mod TT 20px.pngWeeping 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.pngWeeping Wounds, Mod TT 20px.pngBody Count, Mod TT 20px.pngGladiator Rush, Mod TT 20px.pngBlood Rush, Mod TT 20px.pngRising Storm and Mod TT 20px.pngSurging Dash.
