  • Obtained from medium Nightmare Missions, which can be found on Phobos, Jupiter, Ceres, Saturn, Void, Lua, Europa and Kuva Fortress.
  • At max rank, Drifting Contact increases the total melee combo counter time to 13 seconds (15 seconds for Wukong).
    • With Body Count, the counter time is further increased to 25 seconds (27 seconds for Wukong).
  • Can be stacked with Melee Prowess, Volcanic Edge, Vicious Frost, Voltaic Strike, Virulent Scourge, and Enduring Strike for a 355% increase in Status Chance while Channeling. On weapons with at least 22% base Status Chance, this allows them to achieve a total Status Chance value of 100%, allowing every strike to deal Status Effect procs.
    • Weeping Wounds can further increase the Status Chance depending on the Melee Combo Counter.
  • Works well with other mods affecting Melee Combos like Weeping Wounds, Body Count, Blood Rush, Rising Storm and Surging Dash.
