- 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.
- Despite being a (hypothetical) variant of the Dakra Prime, the two weapons do not share Riven Mods; they both have their dedicated Rivens.
- 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.
- Dex Dakra is also the first Dex melee.
- While related to the Dakra Prime due to its similar name and design as a saber, the Dex Dakra is a Dual Sword instead of being a single Sword weapon.
- When performing a ground slam, the Dex Dakra features a unique animation where energy ribbons emanate from the Warframe, along with a visible shock-wave being emitted from the weapon.
- For a short period of time following its release, the Dex Dakra had no Stance polarity before it was fixed in an undocumented hotfix.
- The Dex Dakra was first given to all players who logged in from March 25 to April 1, 2015. They were re-released from March 22 to March 29, 2016 alongside the Dex Furis and Dex Sybaris, March 24 to March 27, 2017.
