    • As with other heavies, the overhead chops cause small AoE damage.

  • Due to its Slash b Slash damage, the Galatine is well suited for use with a Desecrate Nekros.
  • The Galatine's reach is impressive, making it very useful when paired with Primed Reach.

TriviaEdit

  • In Arthurian Legends, 'Galatine' is the name of the sword given to Sir Gawain by the lady of the lake. It is referred to as the 'Shadow to Excalibur's light'.
  • The Galatine resembles the Power Sword from He-Man. This was acknowledged by DE in the redtext before the update.
  • Upon deploying the hotfix, the redtext feed from DE described the Galatine as "a sword so big your friends might think you're overcompensating for something, while secretly they know you are not".
  • The weapon's icon shows the Galatine with red energy, but the default energy color is the standard Tenno energy blue.
  • The weapon itself is also shown to be mostly black, although the Galatine's default colour is mostly white.

BugsEdit

  • Upon selecting the players preference of color, then highlighting your primary, the weapon will appear to have the default color scheme. (UI bug)
  • If equipped when using Ash' Bladestorm the Galatine will be used instead of his right wrist-blade. It is currently unknown whether or not this applies to Galatine Prime.
