Acquisition[edit | edit source]

  • War's blueprint can be acquired as a random drop after defeating the Shadow Stalker.
  • War can be bought as part of the Hunhow's Gift bundle in order to bypass the Mastery Rank Requirement.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon deals primarily Impact b.svg Impact damage.


  • Tied with the DEScindo.png Scindo for the highest base damage of all Heavy Blades.
  • Extremely long melee range.
  • Innate Naramon Pol.svg polarity.


Tips[edit | edit source]

  • War's Impact b.svg Impact damage is unique to its class, as every other Heavy Blade that does physical damage is instead Slash b.svg Slash-focussed. Thus, the weapon can be thought of as somewhat analogous to a Hammer, such as the DEFragor.png Fragor, in terms of uses.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The energy that surrounds War's blades and the glowing light in its hilt will react to different things.
    • When channeling, both will glow extremely brightly, and gradually return to normal brightness after turning channeling off. This specific trait is shared with the (Synoid) CephHammer.png Heliocor.
    • War's lights will also briefly glow after it kills an enemy.
    • When holstered, both the blade and hilt glow will dissipate until brandished again.
    • The hilt light glows a different color than the blades' lights, which is determined by the attachments energy color. Unlike the blade itself, whose default energy color is blue, the default attachments energy color is red.
  • Despite its immense size, this weapon's reach is no larger than that of the Galatine o.png Galatine/PrimeGalatine342.png Galatine Prime.
  • In the The Second Dream quest, War was not only the sword that the Shadow Stalker used, but also housed the consciousness of the Sentient Hunhow. War would be shattered in two during the climax of the quest, creating the StalkerTwoSword.png Broken War sword, which is simply the broken off piece re-purposed as a weapon.
    • War's hilt-light having a separate energy color from the main weapon also references this, as during the quest, it would glow red and pulse whenever Hunhow spoke through the weapon.
  • This weapon, along with the Broken War, is the first Sentient weapon available to players.
  • The pommel of this weapon is similar in shape and design to the Hunhow Sentinel Mask.
  • The name "War" references the biblical Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The horseman of the red horse, War, is charged with bringing battle and slaughter, and is given a great sword. This is reflected in the weapon's main color being red, and its sheer size.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • On very rare occasion, War's lights won't stop glowing after getting a kill or channeling is toggled off. This can often be visually distracting, but can usually be fixed by dying.
