Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • Normal attacks have a little area of effect, and when enemies are close a portion of the damage is spread, much like Scindo. It is very noticeable when using elemental mods, as the visual effect is applied with the damage too.
  • The Taking Flight combo of Iron Phoenix will also trigger the AoE Toxin b Toxin proc.



  • The Dark Sword and its shorter counterpart the Dark Dagger were previously physical damage weapons. Update 13.0 changed them to deal purely Radiation b Radiation damage on their normal attacks, making them the first melee weapons to do so.
  • Prior to Update 19, the Dark Dagger and the Dark Sword used the exact same image for the Arsenal and Codex.
