Maiming Strike

Last Updated on November 11, 2022

Maiming Strike is an ultra rare mod with the V polarity that grants flat +90% crit chance on slide attacks for melee weapons.

Combine this mod with Cat’s Eye (+60% CC) to obtain 60% + 90% increase in Crit Chance for your melee weapon and destroy all the grineer and corpus enemies around you. This is the reason why this mod costs around 400P since it’s overpowered.

Combine Maiming Strike with a Blood Rush + Berserker Combo on any Crit Melee such as Atterax and you can clear room full of enemies within a few swings no matter what level they are.

The mod has received a lot of hate from a small number of players saying that this is a spin to win mod that should be removed from the game.
