Slash damage's unique status effect is Bleed, a DoT (damage-over-time effect) that inflicts 35% of your weapon or power's base damage per tick (7 ticks in 6 seconds) as Finishing damage, which bypasses shields and is not affected by armor or enemy resistances.
Multiple instances of the effect can stack on the same target with each instance having its own timer.
Base damage mods and combo multipliers will increase the damage of bleed ticks while mods increasing Slash damage will not. If the proc occurs together with a headshot and/or critical hit, the bleed ticks are also multiplied by a headshot multiplier and/or critical damage multiplier respectively. In case of melee weapons, another 8x stealth damage multiplier is applied to the bleed ticks if the Warframe is in a stealth state.
While bleeding, the target will have small bursts of blood come out every fraction of a second where they were hit to trigger this proc. Corpus proxies will have a similar effect, only with what seems like oil coming out instead of blood.
Weapons with mostly Slash damage have a tendency to dismember corpses into multiple parts, which is considerably valuable for a Nekros using Desecrate as each part can spawn a Health Orb and some loot. Note that this characteristic may be disabled due to gore settings or regional locks: the Japanese version of WARFRAME, for example, does not allow for as much corpse dismemberment.
|Grineer Health||Slash Modifier||Corpus Health||Slash Modifier||Infested Health||Slash Modifier|
|Ferrite Armor||–15%||Shield||Infested Flesh||+50%|
|Alloy Armor||–50%||Proto Shield||Fossilized||+15%|
These weapons deal the majority of their physical damage as Slash. The damage ratio is important for physical damage status effects, as the game weights the likelihood of which proc occurs according to physical damage ratio. Hence, these weapons proc Bleed more than Knockback or Weakened.
