- Sliding and slam attacks can ragdoll enemies.
- The Jat Kittag can reach ranges of as much as 4-5m with a fully ranked Reach mod.
- Enormous slam attack radius.
- When channeled, the jump attack is likely to fling all unfortunate targets several meters high, sufficient to fling them off platforms. In some cases, it can even send them outside of the map.
- With maxed rank dual-stat event mods Vicious Frost, Virulent Scourge, Voltaic Strike, and Volcanic Edge, the Jat Kittag can achieve a status chance of 85%. Adding Melee Prowess increases this to 88.75%.
- Combining the above with Enduring Strike will result in a 100% status chance during channeling.
- It is the first melee weapon ever released as a Chem Lab melee weapon.
- Up until update 12.3.0, the Jat Kittag used polearm animations as a placeholder.
- The Jat Kittag's slam and charge attacks result in a copious spray of PhysX particles (if enabled). These sparks are colored by the Jat Kittag's energy.
- Prior to Update 12.3.0, the sparks were affected by the wielding Warframe's energy color, not the Jat Kittag's.
- The exhaust of the Jat Kittag flares up during attacks, and cools down shortly afterwards. This is particularly noticeable during Jump attacks.
- When performing the Shattered Village combo using the Crushing Ruin stance, the Jat Kittag's spins results in bright trails of light streaming behind the weapon along with its engines flaring up. The Jat Kittag is thus the only weapon that has a unique attack animation when using a stance combo.
- This animation was once used as the Jat Kittag's charged attack animation, before the removal of charged attacks in Update 13.
