- The Tearblaster is one of only two weapons of "Very Rare" value to not have Adept version in New Game+, the other is Sylens' Lance. As of Frozen Wilds, it also becomes the only weapon that is both unmodifiable and has no alternate/superior variant.
- The weapon that Dervahl uses to fight Aloy during the quest The Sun Shall Fall seems to be a Tearblaster, if not a weapon of similar build.
