  • Reaper Prime was the first primed melee weapon obtainable from the Void, as well as being the first primed melee weapon created without an unprimed counterpart.
  • Along with LatronPrime Latron Prime, this was the first craftable prime weapon.
  • Originally, the Reaper Prime's codex description described the blade as "forged from tempered Rubidium", an alkali metal that's too soft and too light to be used for melee weapons. It has since been changed to mention Rubedo Rubedo.
