While the Dark Dagger is the active weapon, Blight causes affinity gained by Dark Dagger to fill a special meter. Once the required amount of affinity is acquired, the weapon discharges a radial explosion dealing 1,000 Viral damage with a guaranteed status proc to enemies around the player, restores 25% of base Energy, and temporarily increases the movement speed by 10% of the Warframe's base movement speed.
Once the gauge has been filled and the effect has been triggered, the gauge must discharge before it can start filling again, a process which takes a few seconds to complete. This is likely to prevent the mods from being able to trigger continuously without delay in prolonged mission-modes, once affinity-gains have become high enough to fill the gauge with every kill.
- This mod is acquired by attaining the rank of Revered with the Red Veil, and spending 25,000 to purchase.
- Gleaming Blight can be equipped on the Rakta Dark Dagger.
- Lasting Sting and Enduring Affliction do not increase the Viral proc duration dealt by the Blight effect.
- The energy restore effect can replenish energy while using channeled abilities such as World On Fire.
