- Despite the weapon's animation showing projectiles when firing, the Corvas is a hitscan weapon. Additionally, Corvas fires multiple pellets in a scattershot pattern like most shotguns, despite its animation showing it firing only a single shot.
- As a shotgun-like weapon, the Corvas is best used when engaging enemies at close range, where its scattershot spread can be used to deliver massive damage against enemy units.
- Corvas is derived from corvus, the Latin term for crow, a bird commonly viewed as a harbinger of death and destruction on battlefields in many northern European cultures.
- Prior to Hotfix 15.3.3, the charged mode was not working. Firing at objects at various ranges yielded no difference in the shot spread pattern and damage regardless of whether one charged the weapon or not.
- The Ceramica Collection seems to be fashioned after the Corvas; the Pandero Ceramica Skin in particular bearing a striking resemblance.
