New weapon impressions:
Leghugger is cute, but I think Owl was better. Unlike the flying sword, it’s permanent companion so in exchange they made him weaker. He is a bit slow and have a small attack range, so lots of times you end with the enemies half a second before he would attack them. You need to take care of him a bit to evolve it (and that’s when he is worth it), and that needs time, and in that time you may find another item that is higher power.
The shark is gimmicky. Slightly on the slow side. Few times you reach the third hit which is the special one, so for lots of fighs it’s a normal weapon with the shape of a shark. Although there are sometimes where you kill an enemy with the first two hits, and then upon reaching the third attack of the combo you can throw it to a second enemy, that move imo is the most useful one. Thanks god you can throw him in a different direction than the first two attacks, and you don’t really ‘throw’ it, you don’t have to recover it as the lance, but it somehow creates a duplicate shark, otherwise it would be straight bad.
The bombard is nice addition. Very tanky, very damaging, but very short range of activation. Like the pirate chef cannonballs, it can bounce from a wall and explode later.
I have unlocked the Hook but I still haven’t played with it. It seems a fast weapon which can throw enemies behind you.
Killing Deck is a ok ranged weapon. Cool theme. It does little damage on the first two attacks, and higher damage on the third and fourth attack. I can roleplay as Hisoka with it.
I found the trident tricky. It can make high damage with the push move crit + third hit, but gasp you aren’t invulnerable doing the move, nor is able to catch enemies doing their own special moves, so yeah, be careful with it. Also you can yeet yourself of a platform with it.
The tonfas are fun. I love the special attack dowwards that he does with a little jump when he switches direction, and he can do a bigger one if you actually jump. And it’s a good excuse to take the speed mutation.
Yumi and Wrecking Ball are the ones I still have to unlock. The wrecking ball seems to be the new slowest weapon of the game.
The Queen’s rapier is simple (auto second hit that crits), but good. In a way it has the high damage of ‘slow’ weapon with the fast attack animation of a ‘fast’ weapon, it’s just that 60% of the damage comes later in time, so you have to roll after attacking for some enemies.
