Player Note

The lacerate trait is already amazing on the Preacher’s dagger to compliment his passives and weapon selection, so I am looking forward to this fix which hopefully wont remove the trait from the game.

I’ve got a dagger with the same “issue” on my psyker. The problem seems to be that the effect to trigger the lacerate will procc off the bleed damage itself - since the bleed is a non-weak spot hit, it stacks the bleed another time. It will VERY rapidly stack, and it lasts until the target dies or the weapon is sheathed for long enough for the stacks to wear off. If the weapon is pulled out again, the stacks will build up again.

Two gifs I recorded in the meat grinder.

Note how the force push for the psyker will trigger the effect on every target hit as long as I have the dagger out.
