I love the Dragon sword, Dragon's claw & Tiger's fang, and the eclipse scythe.

I always use them.


The weapons I never use... All of the rest. I never took interest in the claws or the kusari gama.

The lunar staff has always seemed, Confused to me and I never even bought the kusari gama.

There are about 2 or 3 weapons that caught on for me.

The Blade of the Archfiend really caught on, I thought it was a fantastic weapon, powerful and stylish.

Falcon's Talons I loved as well, they're great for style videos while using Ninja Cinema, that and mixing between the Talons and Blade of the Archfiend.

Eclipse Scythe, powerful and a great Ultimate Attack, brilliant crowd control as well.

Weapons that didn't catch on.

Tonfa: Not interesting, not powerful, they're not very special really.

Kusari-Gama: Same as the Tonfa, just didn't interest me.

Vigoorian Flail: This weapon was great in the original, but it just hasn't had a significant enough nuff to be worth using now.

Weapons that caught on for me was :

The dragon sword , I loved it to bits

The scythe, I used this to end the boss battles pretty quick (maxed out that is)

Talons, they were fun to use now and then

and the Lunar staff, Its fun swinging it about

Didn't catch on:

Tonfa, I never used them they don't look in any way threatening

Vigoorian Flails, yeah this item rocked in NGB but now I didn't give em a thought

Dual sword, I never used these either too busy kickin ass with the Dragon Sword

the chainy one (forgot its name Very Happy), Never used them either

I liked everything except the claws and the Sycthe, it came of as a newb spam weapon to me... claws were good, but just didn't interest me, they felt more like a chore. Same with the Dragon Sword, but that's just because it was my main weapon in NG:B

My main weapon is the DC/TF in all levels 4 being my favorite.

and then is the:

Viggorian Flails=I love the air combos an the UT.
Tonfas:I love the sounds and the dismember factor its just awesome and Ryu looks cool using them.


I don't like that much the scythe,lunar,claws,they are cool but not my type of weapons.

I only like the DS, Lunar, Sytche, Blade of the Archfiend and the Tonfas. I don't bother with anything else.

DK.


Thats my favorite, WM run done with them.


Almost done with CH2 for the rest of the seven though, have separate saves for the all for WM.


The only weapon that just doesn't work really for me is the Kusari gama, I just can't get the hang of it.


The rest of the weapons are fun though, in bursts.


Least Favorite right now, Lunar and Kusari. Just not working for me that much.

Maybe we should each post a bit on what we know is unique about each weapon. I.e. some convincing, lol.

All the weapons have caught on to me, except the Kusari-Gama. I haven't had the "touch" with it yet, it just feels very weak to me.

On the good stuff:

Tonfa's are awesome.
- The number of hits a combo can do can guarantee a limb explosion, and
- you can dodge midcombo using LT + Thumbstick or A if you sense danger.
Besides that, haven't had enough time with these.

Claws are powerful.
- The directional Y combos (forward YY and Circle Y) are fast and can be done without being intercepted mid-combo (except by explosions).
- Countering is always gonna remove a limb.
- Forward X spam is a boss killer (in warrior anyways, need to confirm in other difficulty).
- Wall Y.... Y as you hit the floor for instant ultimate. There's no need for timing on this so you can just spam Y after the wall attack starts.
- XX >XYYYY... If any of the Y dashes catches: the floor, then instant Ultimate; a wall, then above, which means instant ultimate.
- FLYING SWALLOW -> IZUNA DROP = most conveniently fast kill ever!

Scythe can be used almost like how Diablo's (Dialabaro's?) were. X combo sweeps room for essence, Y ultimate kills everything in path. And that's really all you need to know about this weapon.

DCTF is the best weapon in the game overall, in my opinion.

For the claws, tonfas and k-gama, they're just weird to use but I'll be doing weapon-runs with them soon to get comfy with them.

Scythe is also fun to use (the River Styx Drop is awesome!), but it gets boring after a while.

The Lunar is also a very good weapon due to it's XXY combo damage (can kill 1 purple bat humanoid in 1 such combo), and it's 360+Y UT is among the most powerful in the game.

For the DS, it's actually fun to use and has awesome combo possibilities, but too bad NG2 is not NGB and the combo possibilities in this game is pretty limited.

I just started mentor, and I'm quite sure you can combo anything provided you are using the combo's in the right situations.

I've been tearing up those ninjas with machineguns using XXYY combos (when close) or XX->XY when they escape just out of range (chapter 1), and I have rocket launchers firing around me while I do those. It appears if you use the right moves, enemy projectiles will miss, and you'll lop off some limbs.

So as the game is now, I'm really wondering what people are complaining about in Mentor mode. It's HARD but fair... except the camera and lag...

I love all weapons except Dragon Sword (it's not bad...but it's boring to me when i can use other 7 cooler weapons) Very Happy

however Tonfas are very powerful if used well.......all its combos are very powerful and cut limbs....expecially XX->Y 90% of time takes a limb from everyone, both humans and demons!

Weapons you love and weapons that never caught on.

I love the DS, DCTF and Scythe (mainly for the UTs against small bugs / farming purposes).

I've tried the K-gama in the chapter 10 staircase. The UT is epic but I think I'm gonna get ***** if I try to do it's combos on the Incendiary ninjas. Same with tonfas and the flails.

Lunar is great but I don't really like it (it's very powerful in NG2, this weapon).

(T)DS is good but DCTF makes it look pale in comparison, though. The latter is like a killing machine.

You pretty much just posted the same thing again.


Not necessary.

You <3 the DK, and the rest are okay or bad, thanks, we now know your opinion.
