Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • Zero Slash b Slash damage and only hitting one enemy at a time makes this weapon ill-advised for use against the Infested.
  • The blueprint used to drop from Jupiter's boss J3-Golem, however this method of obtaining the blueprint is no longer available.
  • This weapon is the dagger version of the Cronus although with different advantages and disadvantages.
  • Ceramic Dagger seems to confer a much higher speed boost with slide attacks than most melee weapons.
  • When equipped, the Ceramic Dagger adds a 4th lunging stab to its normal attack combo, which propels the Warframe a good distance forward, which is useful in 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 Pointed 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.
