Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Dakra Prime resembles a Sabre, however there is no obvious crossguard. Alternatively, the Dakra Prime's design may also be based on the Khandaoror.
  • This weapon was formerly named "Dakka Prime" before Update 10.0.4. The original name is derived from Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. The weapon was renamed because players felt confused about the name, "dakka" being a term for firepower derived from the distinct firing sound of a machine gun.
  • Oddly, in-game files refer to the Dakra Prime as "Cronus Prime".
  • There was a bug where crafting the Dakra Prime would result in the user receiving an PrimePolearm.pngOrthos Prime until it was fixed (albeit undocumented) in Hotfix 10.0.4.
