- The Venka has an above average critical chance, making Berserker useful in increasing the weapon's rather slow speed. Therefore, increasing the critical chance is recommended.
- The Venka has an above average status chance, which goes well with the higher critical chance.
- Because of the low damage and attack speed of the Venka, it's recommended to use a Warframe more suited for melee combat.
- Fits Valkyr well due to her high resistance to damage, as well as her Warcry ability which will speed up the attack speed of the weapon. Volt can also use his Speed ability to speed up the weapon and allow his high shields to soak up extra damage that will occur when focusing on melee combat against ranged enemies.
- Use a maxed Fury for good effect, if paired with Malicious Raptor, combos can be extremely quick and deadly with extra mod slots for matching polarities.
- Venka translates roughly to "victorious" or "to win" in Esperanto.
- The claws retract up to the hands until used or equipped.
- The Venka was first seen as an accidentally leaked Codex entry in Update 13.0, along with the Serro and the Bo Prime, before any of the weapons were released.
- It is the first claw-type weapon introduced in the game.
- The damage of Venka is rather "not fixed" as it has 37.1 damage, causing damage to increase to 37.2+ reaching 38 at a very rare chance if tested on average damage per second on a target with no damage resistances and no armor.
- The Venka are similar to the traditional Japanese weapon known as "tekkō-kagi," which were a claw-shaped blade bearing variation of the loaded-fist (brass knuckle-style) weapons known as "tekkō."
- The Tenno Tekko, as they exist in the game, are more similar to a variation of short-bladed tekkō-kagi than tekkō. Given the cultural nuances and crossover between the Venka and Tekko, the variations in naming conventions are obviously apparent as to avoid player confusion and represent the in-universe evolution of the Tenno arsenal.
- The blades resemble the "P" in Tenno Script.
- After using Warframe abilities, Claws won't show anymore, equipping them again will fix this. Tapping "Block" will also remedy this.
- Occasionally, when equipping the weapon in your hands, it will state that you have the Malicious Raptor stance equipped, even when you do not.
- Using Ash's Blade Storm with the Venka equipped will sometimes trigger a stealth attack on the target.
