Range:6 / 8 / 10 / 12 m

  • Excalibur dashes between enemies within a cone 6 / 8 / 10 / 12 meters long and cuts them down with his Exalted Blade. Each strike inflicts 100 / 125 / 200 / 250 base damage.
  • Damage is affected by Ability Strength, the Melee Combo Counter and some mods.
  • Excalibur's health and shields are immune to damage while dashing.
  • Airborne enemies, such as Hellions and Ospreys, can also be targeted.
  • If there are no enemies within its targeting area, Slash Dash will make Excalibur dash forward in the direction of aim, allowing it to be used as a mobility aid when reaching high places.
  • When ExaltedBlade130xDark Exalted Blade is active, Slash Dash will receive the following benefits:
    • Slash Dash will receive a 10% bonus to its base damage from Excalibur's passive.
      • This additional damage bonus stacks with the aforementioned bonus received when using specific melee weapons.
    • Slash Dash hits will add to Exalted Blade's Melee Combo Counter.
    • Energy waves will be released when an enemy is hit by Slash Dash.
      • The energy waves and Exalted Blade are considered separate entities and will deal damage separately.
      • The waves behave identically to those of ExaltedBlade130xDark Exalted Blade.
      • Waves will hit both the targeted enemy and all enemies behind it.
      • Waves are affected by mods on both the equipped melee weapon and on EWExaltedBlade Exalted Blade.
      • The energy waves are able to deal critical hits and status effects.
        • Critical and status performances are affected by equipped critical chance and damage mods, status chance mods, and Mod TT 20pxChromatic Blade.
      • Channeling will only affect the wave's damage and not Slash Dash's damage.
  • Can be used to pass through Laser Barriers unharmed in most cases.
  • Can be used while jumping, sliding, forward flipping, wall running or clinging to a wall.
  • Slash Dash can damage enemies across the Rift Plane.
  • Slash Dash is affected by and can trigger Warframe Arcanes.
