  • All Chak weapons have a default damage type of Choking. This is inherent to the weapon itself, and not its skin.
  • An insect chittering noise is heard when drawing a Chak weapon.
  • You will need 9,500 Ley Line Crystal and 60 Chak Egg.png to buy all weapons and finish the Hivemaster collection. However, you will probably have unlocked at least one with your story.
