Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • 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 Slash b Slash proc on contact. This effect is lost if one uses the Mod TT 20pxPointed Wind stance, which replaces the lunge with a sweeping slash.
    • If the lunge lands behind an unalerted enemy, a stealth attack will be performed instead.


  • Jump attacks will make the Heat Dagger emit a visible ring of fire upon slamming the ground. This visual trait is shared with other Heat weapons like the Heat Heat Sword and DualHeat Dual Heat Swords.
  • The Heat Dagger received a visual change in Update 16.5, giving it a faded color scheme with texture animations similar to those found in Prisma weapons. Its visual model was also sharpened and lengthened to further resemble the Heat Sword.
  • In the Red Veil section of any relay, one of the torturers behind the leader is seen wielding this weapon (possibly) to interrogate the Grineer subject.
