Special Weapon Effects

In order to rise from its own ashes, a phoenix must first burn. – Deals incendiary damage to nearby enemies and releases a nova when depleted. Grants a high amount of incendiary resistance.

Usage & Description

The Ember's Blaze turns the user into a walking area-of-effect source, and is useful for close-range builds or for countering enemy incendiary weapons. While it may not be effective in the DLC it is obtained from due to The Handsome Jackpot's abundance of armored targets, it can be put to good use in the main story.


  • The Ember's Blaze uses the same area-of-effect ability of the Red Suit, albeit using incendiary instead of Radiation.


  • The flavor text is a reference to the 1998 science fiction novel Parable of the Talents by American writer Octavia E. Butler.
