Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Dark Dagger and its longer version the DarkSword.png Dark Sword were previously physical damage weapons. Update 13.0 changed them to deal purely Radiation b.png Radiation damage on their normal attacks, making them the first melee weapons to do so.
  • Prior to Update 19.0, the Dark Dagger and the DarkSword.png Dark Sword used exactly the same image for the Arsenal and Codex.
