NotesEdit

  • Without any stance equipped, the Dark Split-Sword is used as a Heavy Blade weapon by default.

TipsEdit

  • Heavy Blade and Dual Sword stances do not share any polarities, meaning players are forced to commit to either one of the two weapon types.
    • Alternatively, players can remove the stance slot's polarity with a Forma at the cost of capacity points.

TriviaEdit

  • The Dark Split-Sword is the first melee weapon capable of using two different types of Stance mods, in this case Heavy Blade and Dual Sword stances, giving it the ability to use a total of 6 individual Stance mods.
  • The Dark Split-Sword is made up of a Dark Sword and a Dark Dagger. This can be seen when equipping a dual swords stance.
  • The Dark Split-Sword is the first weapon from the Tenno Lab to require Mutagen Masses to craft.
  • On the Release of Update: Lunaro on PC, PC Gamer offered a limited time promo code for the Dulus weapon skin, which is essentially a stretched out PC Gamer logo on the sword.

BugsEdit

  • For unknown reasons, as long as equipped with a dual sword stance, the Dark Split-Sword is guaranteed to inflict a Slash b Slash proc when performing Ground Finishers. This gives a chance that the Riven Mod of the Dark Split-Sword could have an attribute of Slash b Slash damage modifier (either positive or negative). However, due to the Slash b Slash proc damage being irrelevant to the physical damage modifying mods, and in fact the weapon itself has no Slash b Slash damage at all, that attribute actually doesn't make any difference.
