Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Galatine can be used to stun-lock enemies (a characteristic of heavy melee weapons), as well as land easy headshots with its overhead chops.
    • As with other heavies, the overhead chops cause small AoE damage.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Due to its Slash b.svg Slash damage, the Galatine is well suited for use with a Desecrate NekrosIcon272.png Nekros.
  • The Galatine's reach is impressive, making it very useful when paired with Mod TT 20px.pngPrimed Reach.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In Arthurian Legends, 'Galatine' is the name of the sword given to Sir Gawain by the lady of the lake. It is referred to as the 'Shadow to Excalibur's light'.
  • The Galatine resembles the Power Sword from He-Man. This was acknowledged by DE in the redtext before the update.
  • Upon deploying the hotfix, the redtext feed from DE described the Galatine as "a sword so big your friends might think you're overcompensating for something, while secretly they know you are not".
  • The weapon's icon shows the Galatine with red energy, but the default energy color is the standard Tenno energy blue.
  • The weapon itself is also shown to be mostly black, although the Galatine's default colour is mostly white.
