Weeping Wounds is a unique Warframe mod for your melee weapon that offers an effect like no other: it boosts the item's status proc chance as the melee combo counter grows. This means a focus on melee, in return for which you'll build some of the most powerful weapons in the game.
The main draw of Weeping Wounds is twofold: its buff grows practically infinitely, and it increases your status chance without adding an additional damage type to the mix. In practice, this means you don't have to stack dual-stat mods and mix damage types to get a high status proc chance.
How to get Weeping Wounds?
Getting Weeping Wounds is tricky, to say the least. This is an untransmutable mod, which means you can't receive it as a random Transmutation reward, and that's the case due to its unique drop source: the Acolytes. These seasonal enemies only ever appear during the Acolyte event, which means farming this mod will not be easy.
When the Acolyte event is up, the Mania Acolyte has 22.22% to drop the Weeping Wounds mod, which means it's not that big of a grind if the enemy is available. The catch is, of course, that this only happens very rarely, making it a real bother to get if you weren't around during the last Acolyte hunt.
As it stands, you can purchase the Weeping Wounds from another player, though keep in mind that prices vary greatly. While the mod isn't a must, it definitely is a great thing to have for those moments when you just have to melt enemies left and right.
