Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • The Naramon Pol polarity slot works well with Molten Impact to give the weapon's melee attacks innate Heat b Heat damage.
  • High Slash b Slash damage and Heat b Heat damage slam attack make it very effective against Infested and Cloned Flesh.
  • You can receive a free Heat Sword with a weapon slot and an Orokin Catalyst by using code FREESWORD in market.


  • Condition 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 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 Virulent Scourge or (Primed) Fever Strike together with Molten Impact or Volcanic Edge to create Gas b Gas damage and further increase this effectiveness.
  • The last swing of Iron 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 Heat Dagger, Dual Heat Swords, and formerly, 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.
