A different take on a familiar combat knife, the Machete Wraith features a unique styling.
The Machete Wraith is a unique Wraith variant of the Machete, featuring an increased base damage. Originally obtained from completing at least 25 missions during The Gradivus Dilemma, the Machete Wraith is the second Wraith weapon to be released, after the Strun Wraith.
The Machete Wraith was awarded to those who fought 25 battles in The Gradivus Dilemma. The counterpart to this weapon is the Prova Vandal, which would have been awarded if the Corpus had won the event.
The Machete Wraith can be purchased from Baro Ki'Teer in the Concourse section of the TennoRelay for 250,000 250,000 and 410410. Note that Baro Ki'Teer's stock changes with each appearance, and this weapon may not be available on a succeeding appearance.
The Machete Wraith has one of the highest damage reduction on blocking of all melee weapons, capable of reducing 85% of incoming damage from the front.
The Gradivus Dilemma was introduced as a chance to bring back the original Machete as it was decommissioned prior to event and cannot be expected to return. However, from July 10, 2014 to July 16, 2014 the original Machete's blueprint was given to players upon logging in as an apology for the delay of Update 14.0.
This is the second Wraith(after Strun Wraith) and also the first event-exclusive melee weapon.
Even though it is not a heavy melee weapon, the Machete Wraith seems to be treated like one. It features a relatively slow swing speed and will slow the player to a walking pace when the weapon is swung. In addition, it can hit two enemies with each swing, instead of only one like most long swords.
As with all Wraith weapons, only the energy color can be changed. Other colors may be selected, but will not show on the weapon, unless said weapons possesses a skin.
The Machete Wraith is the second Wraith weapon to be re-released, after the Strun Wraith.
