Weapon LoadoutsEdit


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


  • The Dark Sword and its shorter counterpart the DarkDagger Dark Dagger were previously physical damage weapons. Update 13.0 changed them to deal purely Radiation b 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 Radiation damage, it might be an homage to Kanajana, which is a sword of Erokose and also another aspect of Stormbringer.
