Built for close combat, the Sheev's plasma blade slices through flesh and armor with equal ease.

Tenno, You have gone above and beyond. The Grineer are on the defense. Their supply of void keys is dwindling. To recognize your sacrifice I am giving you this weapon. Use it to defend the balance.

—The Lotus

The Sheev is a razor-like dagger of Grineer design that serves as a backup in the event that a Grineer is disarmed by any means. It offers high Slash b Slash damage and status, and the tip of the blade glows with charged plasma that allows Heat b Heat procs on Slam Attacks, but has the slowest attack speed of any dagger.

This weapon was awarded from the Operation: Gate Crash event for completing the event node 15 times, complete with a free weapon slot and a pre-installed Orokin Catalyst.

The blueprint and parts were formerly a reward from the Fifth Season of Sorties; they can now be found as an Invasion reward. All components can be traded.


This weapon deals primarily Slash b Slash damage



Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • The Sheev will inflict Heat b Heat proc on surrounding enemies on its slam attack. This proc does not change even if additional elemental mods are equipped on the weapon.
  • When equipped without a Stance mod, the Sheev adds a 4th lunging stab on its normal attack combo that propels the Warframe a good distance forward, which is useful for catching up to moving enemies. It also has a 100% chance of inflicting Slash b Slash bleed proc. This effect is lost if one uses the Mod TT 20pxPointed Wind stance, which replaces the lunge with a sweeping slash.
    • If the lunge lands behind an unalerted enemy, a stealth attack will be performed instead.



  • The Sheev is a unique dagger originally featured as a reward in the Operation Gate Crash event and later as a buildable sortie reward. Players had to finish the Gate Crash node five times on each planet, for a total of 15 times or collect all parts from the sortie reward pool to obtain it.
    • Like all event reward weapons, the Sheev came with its own weapon slot and pre-installed with an Orokin Catalyst.
  • The weapon's name is likely derived from shiv, a slang term referring to improvised blade weapons, most commonly used as knives or daggers.
    • Interestingly, the Sheev's blade shape is based on some combat knife designs, justifying its Codex entry's description.
  • While the Sheev shares the same slam attack properties as the HeatDagger Heat Dagger, the former does not have the latter's circle of flame visual effect.
  • The glowing "plasma" at the end of the weapon pulses. This 'plasma' appears similar to the 'plasma' at the edges of Grineer cleavers and machetes.
  • Concept art for this weapon was first featured in Livestream 15.
  • Although the description claims it is effective against flesh and armor, it has little Puncture b Puncture damage, making the dagger a poor choice to use against armored enemies.
  • Despite being acquired from Invasions, the Sheev is the only weapon that does not share a Vandal or Wraith variation, unlike the rest of the weapons that are obtained in the same way.
