Notes[edit | edit source]

  • In earlier stages of the development of The Baguette Update, this weapon was named "Scavenger", which was a direct translation of the original French name for this weapon ("Charognarde").
    • The mistranslation is still present on the steam trade card.
  • In the front cover image of physical copies of the game, a Frantic Sword can be seen in the hand of the Beheaded.
  • It is one of the few melee weapons that can scale with Tactics.
