Has a Built in elemental that adds 12.5% toxic damage
A relic from the Great Plague, the MIRE infested sword is a brutal weapon. It not only cuts into the enemy but it infects the wounds of it's victim with a toxic nerve poison. Deals poison damage on ground slam and charge attack.
This weapon can be sold for 5,000.
Decent attack speed.
Decent attack damage.
The highest damage type dealt is Slash damage which is effective against Flesh (non-heavy Grineer and Corpus Crewmen) and infested.
The additional Toxin damage is not listed in the Codex, but can be seen in the Arsenal UI.
The in-game description of the Mire states that it applies Toxin damage on charge attack and ground slams but this is misleading. Only charge and ground slam attacks deal pure Toxin damage, as the description states. All other melee attacks are mostly Slash damage with additional elemental Toxin damage. This extra damage is 10% of your damage.
The Toxin Damage is first elemental applied unlike other weapons that deal innate elemental damage. (needs confirmation)
Prior to Update 11.1.0, there was a bug that caused the Mire not to deal Toxin Damage on its own. Update 11.1.0 corrected this bug.
Best against Infested and Grineer, and weak against Corpus MOA due to Slash damage's multipliers.
Players often refer to the Mire as the "Bacon Sword" due to its flesh-like appearance.
