- Gara thrusts her glass longsword with 5 / 6 / 8 / 10 meters range toward the aiming reticle, dealing 500 / 600 / 700 / 800 Puncture damage and knocking back all enemies within 0.75 meters radius from the blade. Holding the ability key instead sweeps the glass longsword from left to right in a 225° arc in front of Gara, dealing 500 / 600 / 700 / 800 Slash damage to all enemies within reach and bashing them away in a ragdoll state in the direction of the sweep.
- Thrust and sweep damage are affected by Ability Strength and certain mods:
- Base Damage × (1 + Damage Mods) × (1 + Elemental Mods) × (1 + Strength Mods)
- As an example, with a maxed Pressure Point, Shocking Touch and Intensify, a rank-3 Shattered Lash will deal
800 × (1 + 1.2) × (1 + 0.9) × (1 + 0.3) = 4,347.2 damage.
- Mods affecting Puncture damage and Slash damage will only affect their corresponding physical damage type for Shattered Lash's thrust or sweep.
- As Shattered Lash damage is not comprised of Impact damage, physical damage mods that affect Impact have no effect on Shattered Lash.
- Shattered Lash is also affected by equipped melee mods including:
- Manticore's damage bonus applies to the ability.
- Shattered Lash is not affected by the equipped melee weapon's stats and innate effects.
- Glass longsword's range is affected by Ability Range, while blade knockback radius and sweep arc are not.
- Sweep is not perfectly aligned in a straight line and is similar to a wave-like pattern, allowing Shattered Lash to hit enemies on a slightly higher terrain elevation than Gara past ~90°.
- Thrust and sweep casting speeds are affected by Natural Talent and Speed Drift.
- Glass longsword has innate punch through, bypassing entities, walls, and obstacles in the environment.
- Thrust direction is determined when quick cast is initiated. Glass longsword will generate from the initial position regardless of Gara's orientation and position during the cast.
- Sweep occurs around Gara's character model once the hold cast is initiated. On cast, Gara is reoriented toward the aiming reticle, but the glass longsword's path is predetermined by the sweep animation and cannot be redirected upward or downward.
- Enemies crystallized by Mass Vitrify are not affected by Shattered Lash's ragdoll and knockback effects.
- Casting Shattered Lash on the player's own Mass Vitrify glass barrier causes it to break and explode outward, dealing damage to enemies outside the barrier. Damage type of the glass barrier explosion is determined by Shattered Lash's thrust or sweep used to shatter the barrier.
- Shattered Lash's quick cast is a one-handed action that allows Gara to fire and reload weapons, as well as move and perform maneuvers during cast.
- Hold cast is a two-handed animation that stops Gara's movement and other actions during cast.
- Can be cast while in midair.
- While ability is silent, it does not activate stealth multiplier.
- The glass longsword is visually summoned from Gara's left palm and does not possess a grip. Glass shards will constantly break away and fall from the blade as a visual effect, while the longsword fades into and out of existence for the duration of the thrust or sweep.
- The longsword and its particle effects are affected by Gara's chosen Warframe energy color.
- Shattered Lash can damage enemies across the Rift Plane.
- Shattered Lash is affected by and can trigger Warframe Arcanes.
- Tap Puncture damage, knockdown and knockback. Thrust allows Gara to keep on the move, use Maneuvers, as well as fire and reload weapons. for quick cast to thrust the glass sword where you aim, puncturing through all enemies in a line to inflict
- Hold the button for hold cast to sweep the sword, slashing all enemies in an arc to inflict Slash damage, body ragdoll and knockback. However, sweep locks Gara in place during cast.
- Sweep is animation-locked and cannot be aimed upward or downward. However, because the sweep is in a wave-like pattern, it can hit enemies on a lower or higher terrain elevation than Gara depending on the troughs and crests of the wave. You can familiarize yourself with this pattern in Captura mode using the advance time function.
- If enemies are standing on a higher elevation, use Aim Glide (default hold while in midair) and time your sweep to hit them with your blade.
- Modify your melee weapon with base damage, elemental damage, and Puncture and Slash damage to maximize potential damage for Shattered Lash. Depending on your preferred attack method (thrust or sweep) and enemies you will face, you can specialize in Puncture or Slash damage mods to take advantage of damage type bonuses against different factions.
- Base damage, elemental damage, and physical damage from melee Riven Mods do affect Shattered Lash, further amplifying its damage potential.
- Use Splinter Storm on an enemy target to amplify Shattered Lash's damage on it.
- Cast Spectrorage on a cluster of enemies or in the enemy's path to cause them to gather inside the carousel, then use Shattered Lash to thrust at specific targets in a line or sweep the entire group away.
- Crystallize enemies using Mass Vitrify then attack them with Shattered Lash for increased damage.
- Damage multipliers from Mass Vitrify and Splinter Storm can stack to produce even higher damage output for Shattered Lash.
- Create a Mass Vitrify barrier and strike it down with Shattered Lash, destroying it in an explosion of glass fragments that damage enemies on the outside of the barrier. Thrust or sweep determines the physical damage type the explosion damage will adopt, allowing you to adjust its damage potential against different factions.
- Since the glass longsword has innate Punch Through, Shattered Lash can hit enemies standing outside the Mass Vitrify barrier, dealing damage from both the sword and the explosion to enemies in your reach.
