Tips[]

  • Mod TT 20px.png Condition Overload is highly recommended to take advantage of this weapon's high status chance and ability to proc DmgHeatSmall64.png Heat against enemies, greatly increasing its damage into the several hundreds if properly modded.
  • As with all broadswords, using the Heat Sword with ExcaliburIcon272.png 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 20px.png Virulent Scourge or (Mod TT 20px.png Primed) Mod TT 20px.png Fever Strike together with Mod TT 20px.png Molten Impact or Mod TT 20px.png Volcanic Edge to create DmgGasSmall64.png Gas damage and further increase this effectiveness.
  • The last swing of Mod TT 20px.png Iron Phoenix's "Taking Flight" combo will trigger the weapon's slam attack and, thus, proc DmgHeatSmall64.png 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.

Trivia[]

  • Before Update 26.0 (2019-10-31), the Heat Sword used to emit a visible ring of fire from slam attacks. This visual effect was also shared with the HeatDagger.png Heat Dagger and DualHeat.png Dual Heat Swords. Since then, all melee weapons make the same effect when doing slam attacks.
  • The Heat Sword received a visual change in Update 16.5 (2015-05-12), 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.

Patch History[]

Update 30.9 (2021-11-11)

Heat Sword Crafting Requirements

We are changing the crafting requirement for the Heat Sword to require a Neurode rather than a Neural Sensor. Originally, this was meant to incentivize players to explore new nodes, but we want to get better gear in players hands earlier! This change is smaller than most, but meaningful to new players looking to upgrade their melee early on.
