The addition of Prisma Crystal allows this otherwise barbaric weapon to elegantly hack through any foe.

The Prisma Machete is the Prisma variant of the Machete.png Machete, featuring overall improved stats.


  • This weapon deals primarily DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage.


  • Third highest base damage of all machetes, behind ProvaVandal.png Prova Vandal and MacheteWraith.png Machete Wraith.
  • Third highest status chance of all machetes, behind Prova Vandal and Machete Wraith.
  • Normal Attack
    • High status chance
    • High disposition


  • Normal Attack
    • Low crit chance
    • Low attack speed



The Prisma Machete can be purchased from Baro Ki'Teer in the Concourse section of the Tenno Relay for Credits64.png 200,000 and PrimeBucks.png 400. Note that Baro Ki'Teer's stock changes with each appearance, and this weapon may not be available on a succeeding appearance.


  • Prisma Machete used to be exclusive to WARFRAME (China).
  • Despite Prisma weapons typically having improved attributes, the Prisma Machete's stats were identical to that of the regular Machete.png Machete. In Update 26.0 (2019-10-31), over two years after WARFRAME China was discontinued on the PS4, the Prisma Machete was included in the patch notes where it was updated with unique stats. However, another 20 months passed after the aforementioned patch before the weapon was first available in the global build.
  • Interestingly when it was released, it appeared in Codex in the 2021-06-10 Hotfix before Baro Ki'Teer showed up with it on 2021-07-02.
