Honkai Impact Weapons Guide

Basic Guide To Weapons & Battlesuits in Honkai Impact 3

Honkai Impact 3 is one of the best and most popular games that you can play right now. It’s a 3D action role-playing game, where you form a team consisting of 3 Valkyries and freely move them during battle. What’s more, you can switch between team members so you can control a different character. Remember, switching members are handy during battles since certain Valkyries would do well against certain enemies.

Each Valkyrie has a special attack, evasion, the weapon used, and ultimate skill. Besides that, each character is also classified under certain types, which allows them to have an advantage and disadvantage against enemies. It’s like a rock-paper-scissors arrangement, where one Valkyrie beats the other due to their specific types. Nevertheless, knowing each type’s advantages and disadvantages will play a significant role in team compositions and battles.

Aside from attacks and weapons, each Valkyrie also has different Battlesuits available. Similar to the weapons, they are upgradeable to make them stronger. In addition, each weapon is categorized depending on their tier. The weakest weapons belong to the 1 to 2-star category while the strongest to the 5 to 6-star category. If you want to learn more about the weapons and Battlesuits that each Valkyrie uses, read on.
