  • The Stradavar's design bears a strong resemblance to several machine guns utilizing a drum-pan magazine, such as the British-built Vickers K and Lewis Gun, the US-built American-180, and the Russian-built DP-28.
    • The Stradavar further resembles the Lewis gun without its barrel shroud, or the Type 92 machine gun.
  • The Stradavar's name seems to be based on Stradivarius, which is a name given to highly regarded string instruments that were created by the Italian Stradivari family. It's also a reference to pre-WW2 American Mafia culture when it was romanticized that gangsters would carry submachine guns in violin cases.
  • The Stradavar's last fourteen shots sound slightly different to indicate low ammunition in the magazine.
    • Shots from the single fire mode are also a bit louder.
  • Prior to the Specters of the Rail update, Stradavar had identical damage on both firing modes and a lower status chance.
  • With the addition of Update 21 the Stradavar became the first weapon with increased accuracy when fired at the hip and reduced accuracy when firing while zooming (in full auto).
