Flameblades are similar to Butchers in combat style and visually identical to them except for their weapon. They have the ability to teleport short distances, and their GrnDualFireAxe.png Twin Basolk deal Heat b.png Heat damage.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

  • With Flameblades having similar statistics as Butchers, they can be dealt with relative ease.
    • It is best to keep distance as their damage can rip through shields faster than Butchers.
  • The Flameblade's teleportation may appear to be similar to AshIcon272.png Ash's Teleport130xDark.png Teleport. As he appears next to his targets, he leaves a small cloud of electric smoke from his previous location. Flameblades leave particles of purple electricity behind. This can be disorienting when approached.
  • Flameblades pose a decent threat. One swing can deliver searing damage, and your chance to dodge is varied by their ability to teleport from unexpected directions.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Prior to Update 12.0, Flameblades used to be 50% larger than standard Butchers, their large size before was due to their large shields and increased damage prior to Update 11.0.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Flameblades can be found on Keeler, Saturn.

Patch History[edit | edit source]

Update 27.1

  • Fixed animation issues with the Grineer Flameblade causing its second and third attacks in its attack combo to miss its target.

Update 25.5

  • Fixed Flameblade enemy variants often missing their first attack even against a stationary player.

Update 24.6

  • Changed Mortus Pink pigment to drop from Tusk Flameblade instead of Kuakas.

Update 22.0

  • Removed stagger on hit from Grineer Flameblade units.

Update 18.8

  • Tweaked animation of the Flameblade's teleport attack to not be ready to hit players the instant they teleport.

Update 18.5

  • Grineer Flameblade has now been given a flaming blade! To compensate for this lack of firepower we have given the Grineer Flameblade two flame axes. These attacks have a high chance to proc burning, which will hopefully make the Flameblade feel a little better.
