This mod is part of a set, whose set bonus increases with each additional mod equipped from that set.

  • This mod is given at the penultimate mission of The Sacrifice, automatically ranked to level 5. Additional unranked mods can be bought from Cephalon Simaris for ReputationBlackx64.png 100,000.
  • Sacrificial Pressure is essentially the Mod TT 20px.png Pressure Point mod with Legendary rarity and 5 more ranks. It is considered the same mod as its Common counterpart, and thus both mods cannot be equipped together. The same is true for Mod TT 20px.png Primed Pressure Point.
  • The set bonus for Sacrificial Pressure increases all stats given by the mod by 25% of mod's value per set pieces. At max rank with full set bonus, Sacrificial Pressure grants a melee damage bonus of +137.5% and a damage bonus of +41.3% against Sentients.
  • This mod only surpasses Pressure Point at rank 9 with both set mods but fails to surpass Primed Pressure Point even at rank 10. However, the significant boost to the Critical Chance strength from Mod TT 20px.png Sacrificial Steel putting it over double the strength of Mod TT 20px.png True Steel can make up for this.
  • Umbra mods have a unique Umbra Pol.png Umbra polarity, whose matching polarity can currently only be found on Excalibur UmbraIcon272.png Excalibur Umbra, Exalted Umbra Blade, and the Skiajati.png Skiajati. It is possible to (re-)add an Umbra Pol.png Umbra polarity to a mod slot but only through the use of Umbral Forma, which are unique rare rewards from Nightwave, so it is advised not to re-Forma any mod slot with an Umbra Pol.png Umbra polarity.
  • Similar to other faction damage mods (i.e. Mod TT 20px.png Smite Grineer), the bonus damage against Sentients gets applied on top of the base damage and any added elemental damage of the equipped melee weapon (see Damage for complete mechanics).
  • When equipped alongside Mod TT 20px.png Sacrificial Steel on Exalted Weapons, both mods will not show any set bonus, but set bonus effects will still be applied to the final stats.
