This article has been updated for Kenshi version 1.0.37 (Experimental).

The Falling Sun, like the other Heavy Weapons, has an extremely high damage potential, sometimes doing enough damage to outright kill an opponent in one hit. Unlike the other Heavy Weapons, the Falling Sun is much faster and lighter, allowing it to be swung faster and block more effectively. An experienced user is someone to be feared.

The damage boost against Gorillos applies to only standard Gorillo and the Great White Gorillo, not Black Gorillos or the King Gorillo (nor the character Gorrillo and his Gorrillo Bandits for that matter).

The Falling Sun stands out among heavy weapons for its greater cutting damage compared to its blunt damage, making a lower grade weapon a viable Dexterity training weapon.

This weapon has inventory dimensions of 2x10, meaning it can only be used as a primary weapon. Like other heavy weapons, this item will not fit into standard inventories. It must either be equipped or carried inside a backpack.

High-quality versions of this weapon are commonly found in the Scraphouse. Low to Medium quality versions of this weapon are sometimes found in shops in the Shek Kingdom. Cross-manufactured Falling-Sun is found on one ancient leader.

The blueprint for this weapon is rare and can only be found in Scraphouse and Cat-Lon's Exile.

As with all weapons, it is crafted on a Weapon Smith. It costs 14 Iron Plates (or 14 Steel Bars if crafting on Weapon Smithing Bench III) to produce a single Falling Sun.
