Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Slam Radial Damage has a 40% chance to inflict the DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin status effect, which is unaffected by status chance mods.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Dark Sword and its shorter counterpart the DarkDagger.png Dark Dagger were previously physical damage weapons. Update 13.0 (2014-04-09) changed them to deal purely DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation damage on their normal attacks, making them the first melee weapons to do so.
  • Prior to Update 19.0 (2016-11-11), the Dark Dagger and the Dark Sword used exactly the same image for the Arsenal and Codex.
  • Due to its black color and DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation damage, it might be an homage to Kanajana, which is a sword of Erokose and also another aspect of Stormbringer.
