Every time I see this status effect on weapons in games

Imagine that in FPS’
*This has a 45% Chance of bleeding damage*
#This is a fucking Barrett 50 cal

Might cause bleeding, dunno, depends on their armour and how resistant their cells are to an elf passing through their entire body.
That’s why I just slap people with the flat of the blade till they give up. Wouldn’t want to see any blood. Ew.
Would a really really dull sword cause bleeding?
Haha I never thought about it before. Now this’ll be stuck in my head whenever I see that stat
What game is this?
*Laughs in Black Knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail*
So it has a 65% chance of only cutting through the first few layers of skin?
I always assume it’s coated with an anticoagulant.
My head cannon: it’s critical bleeding, enough to lead to your imminent death.
If I would like to make them bleed than I would use a single piece of normal paper
dnd rule set ftw!
I’m imagining THAT scene in monty python the holy grail.
What gear is that? Put an absurd amount of time into this game game and never seen it.
It’s supposed to be an anticoagulant effect.
+35% chance to cause bleeds, yes. That is accurate. Hitting someone through armor does not guarantee severing limb from limb, or causing deep gauges. Further, the way I’ve always read this kind of stat was like hitting an artery or something that could cause the opponent to actively bleed out if they had to walk/crawl a few miles alone without assistance.
Only the bleeding causes you to question it? Not the fact that a sword can have a “critical chance” to magically hurt for more despite you swinging it exactly the same? Or that the “critical chance” to magically hurt them for more can also be magically increased?
Must be nice. The scout has trouble using the Boston basher.
Imagine cutting a tree, and blood starts squirting out.

Fuck you using, Griffin set? Ursine?
You misunderstand. It’s actually a 65% chance to NOT cause bleeding, because your attack is so badass, that it cauterizes the wound instantly. You’re greatly underestimating the power of that sword.
Its has a special edge that causes wounds that don’t close normally.
Causes lacerations instead of cuts, maybe?
65% chance that the blade just *bonks* them.
Some swords and knives are designed to not only cut and stab, but also to tear and rend causing extra bleeding. Right?
I’ve always thought of bleed DoT as ‘hit an artery’; like a crit but Dot rather than flat % dmg up. saying ‘it’s a sword; of course it causes bleeding’ is like worrying that a scraped knee is going to make you bleed out.
It’s not bleeding it’s ***EXTREME*** ***HAEMORRHAGE***
But there is a difference between cutting just some skin and cutting an artery. I think the latter is what those stats refer to.
Lmao exactly! I’ve never understood why it was even there
I’d like to imagine ones is a flesh wound and the bleeding effect is hitting an artery or something significant to bleed out.
What’s the problem. It’s a sword with a sharp edge. If you cut someone they’ll bleed.
Yeah it’s only been sharpened 36%. You got screwed by the blacksmith
35% chance you won’t hit the flat side of the sword, ya dingus.
When I see this, I always imagine that the bleeding caused nicks a major artery or something, you can get quite a few cuts and they not be life threatening, but maybe you just have a sharper blade that has a chance to cut deeper? I unno I just roleplay it I guess
To be fair, the sharp part is much less than 35% of a sword’s surface area. You just have a 35% chance to be holding it by the right end, and facing it the right direction.
Geralt focuses on footwork and rolling. He just looks up every 2-3 swings to see how the fight is going and orients the sword correctly. Lore accurate.
In my head canon it just means it makes wounds that don’t clot or close properly so it keeps bleeding.
*+35% chance of bleeding*
Sword: “am I joke to you?”
You’re more likely to hit an artery with that sword
Cries in *Path of Exile*
Big difference between a clean wound and a bleeder.
But also, this is a video game. They’re just letting you know that you have a chance to apply a DoT.
