NotesEdit

  • Prior to Update 9, there were no knives visible in the quivers.
  • The trails from thrown blades are affected by your energy color.

TriviaEdit

  • A "monofilament" is a type of wire or edge, consisting of a single strand or side of strongly bound together molecules. This creates an edge that is micron or even nanometer thin, the sharpest possible.
    • Typically, they are applied as a cutting tool or a weapon that can sever nearly any object or other molecules.
    • Organic molecular wires have been proposed for usage in optoelectronics.
  • Similarly to the Hikou Hikou and Kunai2 Kunai, the Despair is a secondary thrown weapon that deals mostly Puncture b Puncture damage.
