Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Mod TT 20px.pngCondition Overload is highly recommended to take advantage of this weapon's high status chance and ability to proc DmgFireSmall64.pngHeat against enemies, greatly increasing its damage into the several hundreds if properly modded.
  • As with all broadswords, using the Heat Sword with ExcaliburIcon272.pngExcalibur is advised in order to increase the weapon's damage and swing speed.
  • While the weapon's base damage composition and slam attack effect already make it effective against Infested enemies, one can add Mod TT 20px.pngVirulent Scourge or (Mod TT 20px.pngPrimed) Mod TT 20px.pngFever Strike together with Mod TT 20px.pngMolten Impact or Mod TT 20px.pngVolcanic Edge to create DmgGasSmall64.pngGas damage and further increase this effectiveness.
  • The last swing of Mod TT 20px.pngIron Phoenix's "Taking Flight" combo will trigger the weapon's slam attack and, thus, proc DmgFireSmall64.pngHeat against all enemies in range, allowing you to ignite enemies seamlessly without needing to jump and actually perform a slam if this stance is equipped. The mismatched polarities may discourage this, however, unless one is willing to expend a Forma.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Jump attacks will make the Heat Sword emit a visible ring of fire upon slamming the ground. This visual trait is shared with other Heat weapons like the HeatDagger.pngHeat Dagger, DualHeat.pngDual Heat Swords, and formerly, GrineerCombatKnife.pngSheev.
  • The Heat Sword received a visual change in Update 16.5, giving it a faded color scheme with texture animations similar to those found in Prisma weapons.
  • The Ember statue in the Strata Relay is holding a Heat Sword on its right hand.
