Advantages:

Disadvantages:

  • Below average critical damage multiplier.
  • Low fire rate.
  • Projectiles have travel time and travel in an arc, making it hard to hit at longer ranges and achieve headshots.
  • Although listed as 100% accurate, the Despair has a slight random spread with every throw, making long range targets more difficult to hit.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit

TipsEdit

  • Using the Pistol Ammo Mutation mod can help regain lost ammo when needed.
  • For effective use of non-hitscan weapons, it is strongly recommended to learn how to lead your target. In short, leading means aiming ahead of your target so the projectile still hits him. It can be a challenge to learn it, low level Grineer are recommended for practicing.
  • Despair daggers are affected by the mod Lethal Momentum, making it much easier to hit moving targets and longer range targets.

NotesEdit

  • Prior to Update 9, there were no knives visible in the quivers.
  • The trails from thrown blades are affected by your energy color.

TriviaEdit

  • A "monofilament" is a type of wire or edge, consisting of a single strand or side of strongly bound together molecules. This creates an edge that is micron or even nanometer thin, the sharpest possible.
    • Typically, they are applied as a cutting tool or a weapon that can sever nearly any object or other molecules.
    • Organic molecular wires have been proposed for usage in optoelectronics.
  • Similarly to the Hikou and Kunai, the Despair is a secondary thrown weapon that deals mostly Puncture b Puncture damage.
