Summon a sword of pure light and immense power.

Exalted Blade is ExcaliburIcon272.png Excalibur, Excalibur PrimeIcon272.png Excalibur Prime, and Excalibur UmbraIcon272.png Excalibur Umbra's signature Exalted Weapon, which can only be used upon activating the ability of the same name. The weapon exclusively uses the Exalted Blade stance.

Refer to the weapon's ability page for a list of mods that affect the weapon.


This weapon deals primarily DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage.




  • The Exalted Blade weapon appears in the Arsenal after unlocking Excalibur's ExaltedBlade130xDark.png Exalted Blade ability.
  • While the arsenal states that Exalted Blade deals 250 damage and has an attack speed of 0.833, the actual stats are 275 damage and 0.917 attack speed due to Excalibur's Swordsmanship passive.
  • Note that it's only possible to (re-)add an Umbra Pol.png polarity to a mod slot with Umbra Forma, so it's advised not to polarize the pre-existing ones on Exalted Umbra Blade, unless Umbra Forma can be acquired.
  • Mod TT 20px.png Sacrificial Pressure and Mod TT 20px.png Sacrificial Steel don't show any set bonus while being equipped simultaneously on Exalted (Umbra) Blade, but the set bonus effects are actually applied to the final stats.
    • With both mods equipped, Sacrificial Steel at max rank will show that it's granting +220% critical hit chance, implying there is no set bonus. But final critical hit chance of Exalted Umbra Blade will become 56.25%. Since the base critical hit chance is 15%, this means it is increased by 275%, equal to that of Sacrificial Steel with set bonus.
    • This is also true and applies to all Exalted melee and GarudaTalons.png Garuda Talons.
  • As an Exalted Weapon, this weapon comes with an Orokin Catalyst.png Orokin Catalyst pre-installed.


  • Before the introduction of moddable Exalted Weapons, the stats of Exalted Blade depended on the mods equipped on the player's melee weapon.
  • Prior to Update 23.0 (2018-06-15), Exalted Blade lacked a physical hilt and was fully made out of energy. This was later changed to allow for colour customization.
  • On Excalibur PrimeIcon272.png Excalibur Prime and Excalibur UmbraIcon272.png Excalibur Umbra, the sword is named Exalted Prime Blade and Exalted Umbra Blade respectively and they have different forms. Their stats, however, are identical to Exalted Blade.
    • The energy on Exalted Prime Blade is more prominent than on the other two variants.
  • The design of Exalted Blade's hilt bears a general resemblance to Skana.png Skana.
    • Exalted Prime Blade has the form of a SkanaPrime.png Skana Prime, and all other prime Warframes using Radial Blind will be holding an Exalted Prime Blade as well.
    • Exalted Umbra Blade uses an original design reminiscent of a kopesh.
    • While equipped with the Zato skin, the Exalted Blade will take the shape of an unsheathed Oku Nikana.
