Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Dex Dakra's slam attack does not knockdown enemies, it instead deals Impact b.svg Impact proc on affected enemies, stunning them briefly. There also seems to be a chance of a Blast b.png Blast proc instead of an Impact b.svg Impact proc.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Dex Dakra is the second Dex weapon released, after the DexFuris.png Dex Furis.
    • Dex Dakra is also the first Dex melee.
  • While related to the SwordPrime.png Dakra Prime due to its similar name and design as a saber, the Dex Dakra is a Dual Sword instead of being a single Sword weapon.
  • When performing a ground slam, the Dex Dakra features a unique animation where energy ribbons emanate from the Warframe, along with a visible shock-wave being emitted from the weapon.
  • For a short period of time following its release, the Dex Dakra had no Stance polarity before it was fixed in an undocumented hotfix.
