Trivia[edit]

  • Like most Veist weapons, this weapon's name and description are a nod to a venomous animal. This weapon's name references Widow Spiders, a group of highly venomous spider species. The description references the lengths these spiders are prepared to go to ensure their and their offspring's survival.[1]
