Weapons in Code Vein are equipment that players use to deal damage to enemies. There are five main categories of melee weapons, which can be swapped on the fly via the game's systems, and upgraded to enhance their capabilities. Much like Dark Souls, weapons in Code Vein can block damage, have parameters and stat requirements, elemental capaiblities and a "Blood Type"
How to choose the right Code Vein Weapon?
Since you can level up multiple classes simultaneously and swap weapons on the fly, players can chose a specific weapon for each specific level, enemy or boss encounter. Consider the Blood Type vs the weaknesses of enemies:
Code Vein Weapons
One-Handed SwordsEasy to use, versatile, shorter range but fast attacks and balanced damage
Two-Handed SwordsPowerful and long reach, but slower to wind attacks
Halberds / Pole / SpearsLong reach, area damage, 360 AOEs
Two-Handed HammersHeavy blunt attacks with decent range but slow speed
Bayonet RiflesCan shoot enemies from range, and also melee.
