- The Dex Dakra's slam attack does not knockdown enemies, it instead deals Impact proc on affected enemies, stunning them briefly. There also seems to be a chance of a Blast proc instead of an Impact proc.
- In multiplayer, when you have the Swirling Tiger stance equipped, continuous melee attacks with the Dex Dakra while holding the forward movement key (Default: W) can sometimes cause you to go backwards. Releasing W while attacking can fix this. - Tested between updates 20.0.2 (24/03/2017) and 20.1.0 (05/04/2017)
- The Dex Dakra is the second Dex weapon released, after the Dex Furis.
