Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Ripkas' Codex description used to be "Motorized saw fists" despite being classified as Claws. This was changed in an unknown update, although several years after the release of the weapon.
    • The Four RidersMod TT 20px.png Four Riders stance (which features the Ripkas on its stance card, as it was released alongside the weapon) initially had a second variant that was equippable on Fists; this was promptly removed as a bug. It's possible the Ripkas were originally conceived as Fist weapons before being turned into Claws instead.
  • Strangely, the Ripkas require the Tenno-made AnkyrosAnkyros.png Ankyros to craft, rather than the Grineer-made FuraxFurax.png Furax.
  • While and shortly after attacking, the upper part of the Ripkas' blades will give off a flaming halo effect. The color of which is affected by the weapon's energy color.
