One of the exciting new additions to Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle is the Thunder Spear weapon that is basically like a set of powerful rockets used to take down Titans. Koei Tecmo shared a new video showing it in action.
The Thunder Spear is a new shooting gear that lets you target nearby objects and lock-on for some heavy damage. Since the aim is based on proximity, that means if you want to hit its foot you’ll need to be closer to both of its feet, if you want to reach its nape that means you’ll have to launch from above closer to its head.
You can shoot by pressing R2 and you’ll be rewarded with critical hits by pressing the launch button at the right timing. You can also use it in combination with a Hook Drive maneuver. The Thunder Spear will be available in Showdown Mode (excluding online mode).
Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle releases in North America and Europe on July 5, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. It releases a day earlier on July 4 in Japan. Those who own the original Attack on Titan 2 game will get to purchase the Final Battle as part of an Upgrade Pack DLC.
