- Its generous status chance makes it useful for slowing down enemies with North Wind.
- When equipped with Clashing Forest, this weapon becomes a perfect anti-Infested melee weapon. Its high Slash damage, and its tendency to cause status and staggering is highly effective. Additionally, several combinations of Clashing Forest are especially useful against crowds.
- The Tipedo is the first Staff-type weapon to deal Slash as its primary damage type instead of Impact.
- This is the second weapon that requires two different pre-made weapons in order to craft, the first being the 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.
- Although the Foundry will claim that you can craft the weapon if you have a 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 it's name, Zaws cannot be named "Tipedo", due to profanity.
- Bo, the prerequisite to the Tipedo.
- Kunai, the prerequisite to the Tipedo.
- Amphis, the Grineer electric staff.
- Lesion, the Infested version.
