Affixes are modifiers that can be found on Weapons and Relics.

Normal (non-Cursed) Weapons can be affected by up to three Affixes depending on their Level and Rarity. Some Affixes are restricted to the Main Weapon and Off-hand Weapon categories: Cursed Weapons use their own set of Affixes and always have one positive and one negative, for a total of two.

Relics (including Cursed Relics) can only have one Affix, which increases one of the three Player Stats. The number of Stat points granted depends on the Level and Rarity of the Relic.

While they are mechanically similar, Affixes are distinct from Abilities. An Ability is the main effect associated with one specific Weapon or Relic, while Affixes are random and can appear on different items.

Weapon Affixes[ | ]

Gameplay[ | ]

With the exception of Cursed Weapons (which always have two Affixes), the number of Affixes that can affect a given weapon is determined by the weapon's Level and Rarity.

Lvl.1 weapons have one fewer Affix than higher-level weapons of the same Rarity tier, therefore some weapons (Lvl.1 Common weapons) have no Affix at all. Raising the Level of a Lvl.1 weapon will give it a new Affix.

Most Affixes can appear on any weapon, but some are restricted to Main and Off-hand weapons. The majority of Affixes only affect the weapon that carry them (by increasing its damage, by healing the Player if they kill using said weapon…) but some of them provide more general effects. Note that these effects are only active as long as the weapon that carries them is equipped and drawn.

Rarity Tier Common Rare Very Rare Cursed
Number of Affixes at Lvl.1 0 Affix 1 Affix 2 Affixes 2 Affixes
Number of Affixes at Lvl.2+ 1 Affix 2 Affixes 3 Affixes 2 Affixes

Relic Affixes[ | ]

Relics from Level 2 and above can only have one Affix, which adds a few points of one single Stat: either Constitution, Dexterity, or Perception. Relics whose Ability already adds Stat points (see : Stats Relics) cannot get an Affix.

The number of Stat points granted is semi-random but falls into a range determined by the Relic's Level. Rarer Relics tend to have stronger Affixes than more common ones.

Relic Level Added Stat points
1 No Affix
2 +2 to +4
3 +4 to +7
4 +7 to +9
5 +10 to +13
