Drakengard 3 has multiple weapons for Zero to use and you can switch weapons while you are in battle. The weapon story system returns in Drakengard 3 and each weapon can grow to level four if you can collect materials for it.
The sword a balanced weapon with effect forward slashes and horizontal range. The Sword can also launch enemies and it’s easy to connect attacks into combos which makes blood splash, the key to activating Zero’s Intoner powers.
Zero’s spear has more range than the sword and it deals stronger blows. The downside is the spear’s attack speed is slower.
Fists have limited attack range, but make it easy to chain attacks into combos. It’s a weapon designed for close range, one on one fights.
The chakram is the opposite of the fists. It’s attack power is low, but it can hit an entire group of enemy when Zero is surrounded. Looks like this is a good crowd control weapon.
