Trivia[]

  • The Tipedo is the first Staff-type weapon to deal DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash as its primary damage type instead of DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact.
  • This is the second weapon that requires two different pre-made weapons in order to craft, the first being the TnoGunblade.png Redeemer.
  • The weapon's design is based on the Monk's Spade (otherwise known as the Crescent Moon Spade due to the inverted, crescent-shaped blade on the opposite end), which was used by traveling Buddhist Monks as a defensive weapon as well as a tool to give proper burial to people who died on the roads during their journeys and denied their last rites by their untimely demise.
    • Contrary to the real world model, the Tenno version does not feature the inverted crescent-shaped blade, which was used to catch ambushers' swords or keep wild animals at bay. The Tipedo does feature a slotted double crescent blade instead which appears to serve a similar purpose.
  • The Tipedo appears to be used much like a Glaive (not to be confused with the in-game weapon of the same name), though with the distinction that Glaives are historically single-edged pole weapons while the Tipedo is double-edged due to the overall design being based on the Monk's Spade.
  • The Tipedo was first shown in a concept along with other polearms during Devstream 15.
  • Tipedo is the second staff to have Primed variant, first being BoStaff.png Bo.

Bugs[]

  • Although the Foundry will claim that you can craft the weapon if you have a PrimeBo.png Bo Prime in your inventory, this is most likely a UI bug as it won't allow you to consume the Bo Prime to build the weapon.
  • Despite its name, Zaws cannot be named "Tipedo", due to profanity.
