Class Weapon Overview

Braver Braver utilizes Katana Katanas, Bullet Bow Bullet Bows, and Gunslash Gunslash weapon types.

Katana

Katana Katanas are short-ranged melee weapons that strike a delicate balance between versatility and elegance. Katana has a PA for every situation and uses them with spectacular coolness that captivates the hearts of both allies and enemies. While the Katana's power is overall average, it can string together easy combos that grant it a damage-per-second ratio rivaling the Hunter's Swords. Katana rewards players for precision and timing with its unique mechanic of Just Charge, which is present in several Katana PA's and increases their power if they are charged and released at the right moment. Despite being versatile, Katanas have practically no long-range capabilities without exposing oneself to danger. Katanas can be powered up with the Skill Katana Gear, which, following a successful Just Guard, will envelop the wielder in an aura that boosts their S-ATK and Critical Hit Rate.

Katana's Weapon Action is Guard. By holding the Weapon Action Button, any frontal attack dealt to you will inflict sharply reduced damage and minimal knockback at the cost of PP. Katanas have an innate Just Guard function included; pressing the Weapon Action Button right before an attack connects will completely negate the incoming attack's damage, and the player will counterattack with a powerful strike that activates Katana Gear.

Bullet Bow

Bullet Bow If the Katana is the heated coolness of the Braver, the Bullet Bow is its cold majesty. Complementing perfectly the Katana's close-range potential, the Bullet Bow offers great long-range coverage. Contrary to the Katana, the Bullet Bow's attacks are generally not as extravagant, shooting cold, unfeeling arrows with a solidified intent to kill. The Bullet Bow's accuracy is also dependant on stability: standing still will allow its arrows to hit more consistently their target while running-&-gunning will result in more than a few missed shots. Some of the Bullet Bow's PA's also require and enable followups and setups by combining different PA's into an excedingly high single-target damage burst. Despite some of its PA's actually being Strike Attacks instead of Ranged, the Bullet Bow does quite poorly in close quarters combat or against multiple targets.

Gunslash

Gunslash Gunslashes are a universal weapon for all classes, which can switch between striking attacks that scale off of S-ATK S-Atk and shooting attacks that scale off of R-ATK R-Atk.
