Widowmaker was the moniker of a powerful great scimitar wielded by a tasked slayer genie called the Head Taker.[1]

Widowmaker was one of two dangerous swords wielded by the Head Taker, with the other being Firefiend.[1]


Widowmaker was a vorpal weapon, making it much easier for its wielder to decapitate or dismember their opponents.[1]
