    Weapons that are easy to fight against

    Post by bloodpixel on Mon Mar 26, 2012 2:17 am

    For me it's the Great Scythe/Lifehunt. Most people don't dead-angle (actually I have never met a dead-angler) so I can parry them very easily.

    A weapon I'd like to see? Something that isn't in game. Such as a Lucha mask that has no one handed animations, in fact you have to press triangle to take it from your hand and put it on. It instantly makes your character larger, so a bigger target. But instead of normal attacks you do wrestling moves with different buttons, you can also head butt as your charge attack. All of your taunts are replaced with placing your hands on your hips, clapping once, then laughing. R1, Dropkick, R2, flurry of punches, L1, bear hug, L2, Suplex. Rolling attack, upercut. That, is a weapon weapon I'd love to see in game.

    i find great swords easy to go against, easy to parry, also rapiers and straight swrods are easy to parry too but it depends whos usign them too.

    I've fought people that are really good at compensating for their weapons weaknesses. No-lock swinging ultra-great swords, well-timed pokes with rapiers, unpredictable murakumos, etc.

    My point is some weapons are easier to use than others, but skilled players will find uses and strengths of all weapons. Not fists though.

    Slow weapons, such as greatswords or very big axes.

    You first check if your opponent has some stamina-regeneration thing going on - very obvious from the green aura, and then you just count his R1 attacks.
    When you're sure he's left with very little or no stamina (3-4 blows) go for the attack. If he rolls or shields he consumes the stamina he's got left and he's very open for your next swings. cheers
    If he uses an R2 attack instead you can usually place one good katana blow and roll away before he recovers from the animation.

    For this I've got to be fast so I'm always very light in my armor and I have low poise... when I fail in dodging they usually kill me in one combo. I'm also very susceptible to lag, but that's the way I like to fight silly

    U shoud met me! Maybe in FC.

    People using greatsword i guess. But everything depends on who s wielding it. There are some skilled players in FC. All of them have there special weapons that others think that there easy to defeat

    What if I added the off hand katana that I use? Most opponents message me saying they find it unpredictable. Other than that I agree since I use Kats and try to vary my timing and alternate attacks in seemingly random patterns I find them easy to beat.

    FC has taught me well.

    Well, like someone else said, it may also depend on who is using them. Most fights I get with katana users just spam R1 because they want to get bleed up fast. Im sure i should have a hard time beating you hehe

    I would say that the weapons I find easiest to fight are knives and katanas(Easy to parry seeing as many people just spam out hits. Block the first one, parry the second). I always seem to miss that parry with Ultra-greats and great swords, and halberds have too much reach for a rapier to really do well against. When fighting Ultra-greats or halberds, I find my self just going for a poke strategy, or just backstabing them outright.

    Big weapons. I love just dodging and getting the odd hit on them, just frustrating the hell outta them.

    I also love facing off against weapons that are similar to mine, not because I think im more skilled, but it's great having to go tooth to tooth with the same weapon but a different style.

    Sorry, I forgot them. Haven't actually fought against anyone using them. The other fist weapons have a ridiculous range, while the claws are indeed viable weapons with their longer range and bleeding effect. I sometimes use them myself too.

    I like seeing katana invades against me. I use a greatsword so it's as simple as taunting them into attempting parries and then using the running attack or the jump attack spontaneously to break their guard nad smash them into the ground.

    I love crappy greatsword users... they make it easy for the good ones to predict how an opponent will react.

    Claws can be parried easily if you can bait them into using the rolling attack.

    I'm trying to use axes as my main weapon but I find people easily counter my Butchers Knife you have to be completely sure what your doing before you swing it, which is bad for me cause I haven't the slightest clue, but I love using it anyway.

    Butcher knife was my first weapon love. I used that and my +10 sack for a LONG time on my first run through. Good times. I love the move set and that one handed r2 makes me giggle every time.
