Trivia

  • The name, although directly referring to the Crimson Lance defector, Athena, from whom the weapon is obtained upon the defeat of Knoxx, is a double entendre that is also referencing the Greek goddess Athena [1], the goddess of wisdom and war strategies.
  • The Athena's Wisdom uses a unique Hyperion material, a pink color with a star pattern, similar to the Monster's pink Moxxi Mobile skin.

Mechanics

Athena's Wisdom derives its special effects from the barrel5_AthenasWisdom barrel. Compared to the standard barrel5, this part further improves accuracy and handling of the gun when firing. The unique Athena's Wisdom material AthenasWisdom_Material is equivalent to Hyperion Material_Hyperion_1. Please see stat modifiers for an explanation on how to interpret all of these modifiers.
