Want to know what that Curse effect is on your weapon? This guide will tell you What Does Cursed Do In Assassins Creed Origins so you can go into battle prepared and better equipped. Knowing is half the battle, as they say.
Assassin’s Creed Origins features a multitude of different perks and bonuses. Some of them are obvious, such as Critical Hit Damage, while others are more difficult to figure out. We have a detailed guide explaining every single weapon effect and bonus in the game so be sure to check that out if you want additional information on other perks.
However, there is one perk that stands out. Cursed. Unlike the other rare perks Cursed is red, not gold. Hinting at a possibly more sinister effect than the other rare perks, that are all totally positive.
Cursed Weapons do two big things. Firstly, they increase all of your damage by 200%. On some of the bigger weapons, this can be hugely devastating and enough to swipe down most enemies in a single blow. A bit like some of the weapons in our Legendary weapons guide.
The second effect however, is not as useful. Whenever a Cursed weapon is equipped your health is capped at 33% of your total HP. So while you’ll be cutting down foes in a single blow, there’s a good chance the right enemy will do the same to you.
200% increase in damage for 67% of your health lost. Is it a worthy sacrifice? That choice, is up to you.
