See the user build section for builds using this weapon.


  • Although typically useless against Infested due to dealing 50% less damage to Impact, Adding Heat or Blast damage can add extra elemental damage which can compensate for the lower damage. 
  • Due to a high charge damage of 120, a charge build will yield a high damage output, so aim toward maximum charge speed and damage.
  • Stealth attacks while invisible with Ash or Loki will deal even more charge damage, and can help to quickly level up the weapon.
  • Jump attack animation is slightly slower then normal, after hitting the ground it takes a moment for you to swing it down. However when it does, it can knock down a group of enemies in an average radius. 
  • Second highest proc chance of all melee weapons, and the Impact damage will proc most often, causing bonus staggering to enemies.
  • Has a good critical chance and good critical damage, can be worked toward crit-builds.


  • The plasma sword uses the smaller model of the pre-update 11 Gram.


  • New Default Colour
