Bows are a great long-range weapon capable of hitting enemies from long distances using the Charge Attack. Its normal attack performs 5 consecutive mid-range attacks and the charge attack allows you to charge your normal attacks for a few seconds and infuse your character element’s energy into your arrow. This will also increase your attack range and damage when fully charged.

Claymore is a slow melee weapon capable of dealing much more damage to your enemies for each swing and it also has the capability to deal bonus damage towards Geo objects like shielded monsters.

The normal attack performs 4-5 consecutive slow and wide melee attacks and the charge attack has a small windup before performing a furious chain of attack that continuously already drains their stamina. This attack will end with a more powerful slash once the character runs out of stamina or reaches the max duration.

Polearms are a great melee weapon for hitting enemies faster than all other weapons with a good forward reach and knocking capabilities. The normal attack with this weapon performs 5-6 consecutive fast attacks and a charging attack with Polearms allows you to lunge forward, dealing damage to enemies along the way.

Sword is a melee weapon capable of hitting enemies in close range with decent attack speed and rapid attacks. Its normal attack performs 5 consecutive melee attacks and a sword user’s charged attack has a small windup before performing 2 fast arcing AoE attacks in front of them.
