- When equipped without a Stance mod, the Heat Dagger adds a 4th lunging stab on its normal attack combo, which propels the Warframe a good distance forward, which is useful for catching up to moving enemies. It also has a 100% chance of inflicting a proc on contact. This effect is lost if one uses the stance, which replaces the lunge with a sweeping slash.
- If the lunge lands behind an unalerted enemy, a stealth attack will be performed instead.
- Slam attacks always apply a proc, even if the weapon is modded to not deal damage.

There is also a clear difference between the Heat Dagger Forest-Camo Skin icon and actual model. The and also suffer from this problem.
- Out of the family of Heat weapons ( , , Heat Dagger) the Heat Dagger is the only one out of these that deals innate damage, not only on radial slams.
