  • Hextech Gunblade's healing is a Ravenous Hunter rune.png drain effect and is considered Omnivamp colored icon.png omnivamp.
  • Lightning Bolt is not considered a Projectile.png projectile.
  • Hextech Gunblade's passive heal is the same effect as Death's Dance's Death's Dance's, and Additive stacking icon.png stacks additively with it, granting 30% healing on all damage.

Old Item VFX

  • The Gunblade is a recurring weapon in the Final Fantasy franchise. the Hextech Gunblade most closely resembles the Lion Heart, Squall Leonhart's ultimate weapon in Final Fantasy VIII and Dissidia Final Fantasy, though the Hextech Gunblade has a larger and more greenish blade as opposed to the Lion Heart's blue. In an added FFVIII reference, the Hextech Revolver Hextech Revolver, which is needed to fuse the Hextech Gunblade, takes its name from Squall's initial weapon.
