Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Dark Sword and its shorter counterpart the DarkDagger.png Dark Dagger were previously physical damage weapons. Update 13.0 changed them to deal purely Radiation b.png Radiation damage on their normal attacks, making them the first melee weapons to do so.
  • Prior to Update 19.0, the Dark Dagger and the Dark Sword used exactly the same image for the Arsenal and Codex.
  • Due to its black color and Radiation b.png Radiation damage, it might be an homage to Kanajana, which is a sword of Erokose and also another aspect of Stormbringer.
