Nier Automata: Weapons List NieR Automata guide, tips

This guide page for NieR Automata offers a list of all available white weapons. Using the list will help you collect 100 roni for your collection.

On this page of Nier Automata game guide you can find a list of all available varieties of melee weapons. You will find out where you can get, search for or buy particular weapons, as well as whether there are additional requirements for unlocking any type of weapon (eg. weapons available only within a specified Route).

Basic information

The first column lists the name of the Small Weapon - Nier Automata: Weapons List - Summaries - NieR Automata Guide
  1. Only melee weapons can be collected and obtained in the game. Ranged attacks are carried out by using weapons installed on the pods and each of the 3 available pods has a different firearm - a machine gun, a laser or a rocket launcher.
  2. You can upgrade acquired weapons by visiting one of the blacksmiths in the game world. For each such operation you have to pay. Also, you need some crafting materials. Weapons can be upgraded to a maximum 4th level. If you collect all weapon upgrades for every melee weapon type available in the game then you will earn the Inorganic Blade trophy as a reward.
  3. Acquired weapons are automatically transferred to the next campaign Route, that is, from Route A to Route B, and then from Route B to Route C and D etc. You don't have to look for them again. You will find each type of melee weapon only once.
  4. It's worth to search for weapons in form of a loot after you reach Route B, because some of them will be hidden in locked chests. Even if you find these chests during Route A (while playing as 2B), you won't be able to open them yet. They require you to use hacking, that is, the unique ability of 9S.
  5. Chapter Select feature allows you to return to omitted story weapons, e.g. those available only within a specific Route or decision.
  6. Weapons in the game are divided into several categories - Small Weapons, Large Weapons, Spears and Combat Bracers. We've divided the weapons in our list into the same categories, which should make it easier for you to locate yet unobtained gear.
