Trivia[]

  • Volnus is derived from the Latin word vulnus, which means "wound" and is the origin of the word vulnerable.
    • This may be a reference to the weapon's high proportion of DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage.
  • Upon performing a slam attack, glass shards will fly out from the point of impact. This is purely a visual effect.
