The developers have launched a new hotfix for Dead Cells and it reworks the Bladed Tonfas and other weapons from the latest DLC. Aside from that, it brings balancing changes and quality of life improvements.

The Bladed Tonfas are one of the main weapons introduced in the Queen and the Sea DLC. Originally, its damage scales with your current movement speed. However, the devs have reworked it so it no longer scales on speed.

Despite the adjustment, it is still quite a deadly weapon. That is because if the first attack hits, the subsequent strikes will always be critical.

Keep in mind that although this change has already been implemented in the latest hotfix, the developers said that the weapon’s description is not yet updated. This will be corrected in the next patch.

Aside from the Bladed Tonfas, some weapons in the DLC have also been improved. Maw of the Deep, for example, not only crits on rooted enemies but gets a damage boost as well.
