First, here’s the tweet going over the Fire Emblem Engage weakness chart, with the classic weapon triangle appearing on the left-side. As usual, swords best axes, axes are strong against lances, and lances will beat swords. On the right side is a second chart. It notes that special artes a character might know will be strong against an opponent who is using a bow, throwing knife, or tome to attack.

As for breaking, that’s a side effect of taking advantage of weaknesses. In addition to dealing damage, a “break” can be triggered. When this happens, an enemy can’t counter attack even if their speed would normally have allowed them to follow-up your attack. Likewise, if one of your allies is hit by an attack strong against them, they’ll lose the ability to counter.

Fire Emblem Engage will come to the Nintendo Switch on January 20, 2023.
