Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • Mod TT 20pxCondition Overload is highly recommended to take advantage of this weapon's high status chance and ability to proc Heat b Heat against enemies, greatly increasing its damage into the several hundreds if properly modded.
  • As with all broadswords, using the Heat Sword with ExcaliburIcon272 Excalibur 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 20pxVirulent Scourge or (Mod TT 20pxPrimed) Mod TT 20pxFever Strike together with Mod TT 20pxMolten Impact or Mod TT 20pxVolcanic Edge to create Gas b Gas damage and further increase this effectiveness.
  • The last swing of Mod TT 20pxIron Phoenix's "Taking Flight" combo will trigger the weapon's slam attack and, thus, proc Heat b Heat 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.


  • 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 Heat Dagger, DualHeat Dual Heat Swords, and formerly, GrineerCombatKnife Sheev.
  • 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.
