Notes

Although the name "Blackhawk" refers to many things, the most probable allusion here is to the Ruger Blackhawk revolver. The item description employs the Retirony trope, that appears in countless films, television shows, etc.

Blackhawk has been in the game since launch (see release 2011-04-04). Like Sentenza, it was significantly changed in the mission update release 2012-02-22. Its damage type was changed from a mixture of piercing and shadow, to pure shadow. Also, it gained its gremlin bonus. Blackhawk's recipe was changed in release 2013-07-30. In release 2014-12-03, the gremlin damage bonus was increased from Low to High.
