When it comes to Lies of P, the term “sword” is pretty broad, since Pinocchio can find strong swords of all shapes and sizes.
Lies of P only has 5 types of weapons, even though it has weapons made out of clock hands, mine drills, a bone saw that is way too big, and a big axe made of puppet arms. There are daggers, swords, greatswords, blunt weapons, and big blunt weapons in this group.
It’s also interesting to note that the swords group looks the least dangerous. Most of the weapons that fit this category look like swords, or at least they look enough like normal swords to be mistaken for ones. Any way you look at it, swords are very good mechanically in Lies of P because they deal average damage and hit quickly. So, let’s look at all the swords in the game and pick the best ones.
The Puppet’s Saber is the default weapon, so players who don’t like rapiers or want to avoid carrying around big swords should start with it. This is a list of basic, useful, and effective weapons that were chosen because players can depend on them for a long time before “needing” to switch to something else.
To be honest, all three of the starting weapons in Lies of P are liked by most people and can be used the whole time without any major problems. But the Puppet’s Saber is a good way to see how different sword moves work in this game as a whole.
Following is a sword player can only get by going to the Estella Opera House. Because of how fast the enemies move in the Opera House and how small the halls are, this part of the game has one of the best atmospheres in Lies of P. Also, a faster weapon works a lot better here than a slower one. The Clock Sword is a great tool, though, even when you’re not in this area.
In almost every way, it’s not great, but it’s pretty good in every single one. It has one of the few Taunt Fable Arts in the game, Bell of Provocation, and Storm Slash as an attacking Fable Art. It also looks different and scales well in either Motivity or Technique.
Interestingly, the Puppet’s Saber and the Wintry Rapier are both “swords,” even though the Greatsword of Fate is a different type of weapon (a “greatsword”). But if both are normal weapons, why is the Wintry Rapier ranked higher than the Puppet’s Saber? When it comes down to it, the Wintry Rapier’s handle is one of the best ways to make any heavy blade much more useful.
Most weapons that depend on Motivity are too heavy to hit with their stock handles unless you have a very large window of time. Putting the Pipe Wrench head on the Wintry Rapier handle, on the other hand, lets players use the Pipe Wrench’s high damage output while also speeding up their attack movements.
That’s followed by a stick made from trash that is, for some reason, called a sword. In Lies of P, there isn’t a separate category for “spears,” so most spears are classified as swords. On the other hand, most axes and hammers are classified as big blunt weapons.
The City Longspear is pretty simple, which makes sense since it’s made from old signposts and loose fence. It has good Technique scaling, attacks that happen pretty quickly, a lot of reliable thrusting techniques, and some good Fable Arts.
Blind Man’s Double-Sided Spear
|Blind Man’s Double-Sided Spear||11.4||–||=||D||B||N/A|
Next is the Blind Man’s Double-Sided Spear, which is another spear that can be thought of as a sword. Somehow, this spear is even shorter than some of the other spears in Lies of P. However, that doesn’t change how good it is. The blind Stalker Noah used this weapon to protect others. Because of this, the blade looks and works like a tuning fork, which probably helped him “see” better during battle.
It’s also one of the few guns that doesn’t have any animations that can be changed. Because the back of the spear has this sawblade that looks like a shield, Pinocchio uses it to fight as well during heavy attacks.
Bramble Curved Sword
|Bramble Curved Sword||9.6||=||–||C||C||N/A|
The sword on this list clearly draws its ideas from real curved swords from past, as it has the look of either an Ajanta or a Kukri blade. The Bramble Curved Sword is a great weapon in almost every way, but its charge attack is what makes it stand out. For the charge strike on the Bramble Curved Sword handle, Pinocchio has to wind up before he can jump forward and make this wide, horizontal slice.
Players can charge their attacks from a lot farther back than they normally would have to. Because Pinocchio can cover so much ground with this. This lets them fight from a relatively safe position. The Bramble Curved Sword’s blade is also good, but the handle is what makes it great. Because it makes most of the different combos better.
Proof Of Humanity
|Proof of Humanity||20.5||=||–||B||B||N/A|
It’s a shame that the rest of this list is mostly made up of Rare Ergo guns. Putting the rarest guns at the top of the list makes sense because of the materials needed to make them. But it’s not the most exciting thing. The Proof of Humanity is the first weapon. Since players need the Nameless Puppet’s Rare Ergo to get it, it will probably be the last weapon they get during their game.
You can use this weapon for NG+, though, or just to mess around after finishing the story. It’s one of the few swords that has natural Crit Chance; normally, only daggers have this. Its attacks are fast even though they’re heavy. And its heavy attacks and Link Slash Fable Art where the blade splits in two make for some amazing moments.
A lot of the guns in the top three spots on this list are also ones that Snow Rider 3D players won’t be able to get until the very end of the game “story.” The Uroboros’s Eye is the next one. It is one of the most unique weapons in the game and is made from Laxasia’s Rare Ergo (once players beat her). It’s pretty much a big sawblade Chakram that players can swing around, “turn on” to deal more damage per swing, and even throw at enemies to hurt them before it goes back to Pinocchio on its own.
The Puppet Ripper is a scythe weapon that can be taken off of Alidoro the Treasure Hunter after giving him the Puppet King’s Ergo. It changes from a Chakram to a Scythe. You can hit enemies around corners or through walls, attack quickly, and this thing has an insanely long range. It also has great technique scaling and amazing fable arts. This tool is so good that there are almost too many good things about it to list.
Two Dragons Sword
|Two Dragons Sword||12.9||=||=||D||A||N/A|
Finally, the Two Dragon’s Sword has to be at the top. It looks like this katana-like blade will play a big role in both Alidoro’s and Eugenie’s side quest. And players can get it early enough that they can spend some time with it before they have to go into NG+.
Because it doesn’t follow the rules that all the other weapons in Lies of P seem to follow. The Two Dragon’s Sword is actually the best weapon. Players can move while attacking with this, use its heavy attacks to cover a lot of ground, block while fighting if they time them right. And even use pure energy to send their sword slashes flying forward.
