Each kill with this swooping blade adds bonus corrosive damage to the Djinn Sentinel’s next Fatal Attraction cast. In turn, each Fatal Attraction cast by the sentinel bestows the weapon with a period of corrosive damage.
The Gazal Machete is a unique melee weapon that serves as a companion weapon to the Djinn sentinel. Each enemy killed will add potential Corrosive damage to Djinn's radial corrosive blast, and each consecutive cast of Fatal Attraction will buff the Gazal Machete with additional corrosive damage for a short period of time.
The Gazal Machete was added into the game in Update: The Vacuum Within. The blueprint is available through clan research in the Tenno Lab.
When the Gazal Machete kills an enemy, the Djinn sentinel will gain 50 bonus Corrosive damage on its next successful cast of Fatal Attraction's radial blast. This bonus can stack up to a maximum of 10 times, for a maximum of 500 bonus damage after 10 kills. These stacks reset once Fatal Attraction has performed a radial blast.
Upon Fatal Attraction activating, the Gazal Machete will receive 25% additional bonus damage as Corrosive for 30 seconds.
