Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • The Dakra Prime is treated as the third upgrade to the Skana, after Cronus and the Pangolin Sword, as it possess similar characteristics in terms of output damage on Maneuvers.
  • While the Dragon Nikana surpasses the Dakra Prime in terms of base single hit damage, the Dakra Prime can achieve a higher damage per hit if equipped with the Crimson Dervish stance, due to the stance's high damage multiplier on normal attacks. This comes at the cost of Crimson Dervish's slower attack speed however.


  • The Dakra Prime resembles a Sabre, however there is no obvious crossguard. Alternatively, the Dakra Prime's design may also be based on the Khandaoror.
  • This weapon was formerly named "Dakka Prime" before Update 10.0.4. The original name is derived from Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. The weapon was renamed because players felt confused about the name, "dakka" being a term for firepower derived from the distinct firing sound of a machine gun.
  • Oddly, in-game files refer to the Dakra Prime as "Cronus Prime".
  • There was a bug where crafting the Dakra Prime would result in the user receiving an Orthos Prime until it was fixed (albeit undocumented) in Hotfix 10.0.4.
