Appears to be capable of higher ranges than the Kunai.
[ citation needed] Can penetrate straight through enemies, allowing it to hit multiple enemies if lined up (Bugged, only seems to work when you are host. Lag makes it work incorrectly).
Has two polarity slots.
Higher base damage than the Kunai.
Very fast reload speed.
The arc of each throw, although random, still allows you to accomplish headshots on enemies behind cover.
Infested Runners do not explode on death when killed by this weapon.
Non-hitscan weapon. Projectiles have travel time, unsuitable against moving targets at long distances.
Although listed as 100% accurate, the Despair has a slight random spread with every throw, making long range targets more difficult to hit.
Requires an even larger amount of materials to craft compared to the Kunai.
While you are holding this weapon, your Slide Melee attack does not get a speed boost (bug).
Does not stagger like the Kunai.

Prior to Update 9, there were no knives visible in the quivers. Unknown if intended or not.
The trails from thrown blades are affected by your energy color. (Seems to only work if you are the host.)
Currently, while holding a Datamass, there is no proper "animation" or "alignment" of the Despair, for running with the Datamass. The Despair will float above/outside of your warframe's hands, as if you had a pistol in your hand instead. This problem also occurs when performing a Jump Kick.
Trails from the blades are much brighter and last longer than they should since Update 11.
