In the video, four weapon types in Nier: Automata are shown: small swords, large swords, spears and combat bracers. Weapons in these categories can be unlocked along with upgrades to the player’s “Pod” support system.

Players can also switch main character 2B’s weapons mid-combo to maximize both the range of abilities and effectiveness.
