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, stat requirements and elemental capabilities.

  • Your weapon scales off your character's Level - and is then influenced by your Blood Code. Keep this in mind as you plan your Upgrades.
  • Matching Blood Codes to your playstyle will allow you to create unique and versatile builds.

How to choose the right Code Vein Weapon?

equipment-interface-hint-code-vein-wiki-guide

Since you can level up multiple classes simultaneously and swap weapons on the fly, players can choose a specific weapon for each specific level, enemy or boss encounter. Consider selecting your Blood Code and Blood Veil vs the weaknesses of enemies:

  • Venom
  • Leak
  • Stun
  • Banish
  • Slow
  • Blood
  • Fire
  • Ice
  • Thunder

 

Equipment Restrictions

Each piece of equipment has stats requirements and weight. Exceeding your weight limit restricts your ability to dodge attacks. Not meeting the stat requirements greatly reduces your attack power.

Equipment can be changed from the menu screen. Both main weapon and sub weapon can be equipped. These weapons can be switched without opening the menu. Press ↑ (upward arrow) to switch between main and sub weapon.

      So, elements. Apparently an element of 35 means +0.05x damage; 40 means +0.1x; 50 means +0.2x; 55 means +0.25x; 60 means +0.3x; 70 means +0.4x; 80 means +0.5x... so it's the % increase, plus an added meaningless 30 if there's any elemental damage at all? Weird. They stack additively with each other, multiplicatively with other attack power: 50 of all four elements means +0.8x damage. 50 is the norm for Chrome'd weapons and Gift buffs, but some innate elemental weapons have other numbers. The wiki says the Gift buffs add less to weapons that already have the element on them, but I'm not seeing that--in all cases, it's adding 20 (aka +0.2x aka 20%, not 15% like the wiki says), except if the element isn't already present, then it reads as 50, but the effect is the same either way. No idea what that extra 30 is for.

        they have the blazing claw which is the closest thing to a katana. its really cool and once you upgrade it, it is very powerful. its not like a traditional katana like you see hung up on the walls at the shop but it is just as nice looking and it gets the job done.

          I really wish they had some kinda katana variant in the game. I mean they have a bunch hung up by the weapons shop. I hate when games do that ( ._.)

            Please stop spreading misinformation about Blood Veils... They do NOT increase weapon damage, only the Drain Attack damage as well as Dark and Light Gift damage (excluding weapon buffs)

                I saw a guy wielding what i presume to be a rare twohanded sword, it was curved, had a flat tip with one serrated edge. Where can i find this sword?

                  I'm starting to get some The Surge flashbacks, with it only having 5 weapon types as well. The movesets in The Surge were very diverse among types, though, which really helped it. Maybe this will be the case?

                    My advice always, add more unique weapons, whips, scythes, boomerangs, but keep the ratio 3:1 so that unique weapons are still, you know “unique”!
