The Bleeding Effect, or simply referred to as Bleeding, is a negative status effect.
As a player take various sorts of physical damage, there is a chance that they may receive the Bleeding Effect. Players with the Bleeding Effect will see a icon on the bottom-right corner of the their Heads Up Display. In third-person view, they will also see blood spurting from their characters, which also leaves a pool/trail of blood on the floor.
The Bleeding Effect may be stacked up to three times, with each increment adding an additional icon. Bleeding reduces the player's health over time, with the rate of health loss being greater as the effect is stacked.
