Criteria For Best Weapon

Heavily Depends On Playstyle

The best weapon depends heavily on your preferred battle style. Because of this, there are no specific weapons that beat all other weapons when it comes to stats and dealing damage.

DPS Stat Scales To V's Level

The damage per second of a weapon is not necessarily fixed - it will scale to V's level at the time you acquire the weapon, making it a minor factor when selecting the best weapon.

Ability & Versatility Are The Main Criteria

Since we're not placing great emphasis on the DPS of a given weapon, instead the versatility and effect that the weapon provides will be prioritized here.

How To Get Better Weapon Stat?

Selective Crafting

What Is Selective Crafting?

The effects and stat you can get by crafting are not static. You can save before crafting and reload the save when you get a weapon with a stat lower than expected. You can continue to reload until you get your desired stats.

Low Level = Low DPS Stat

The DPS of a weapon scales with your level (at the time of acquisition). If you want to craft a weapon with better DPS, increase your level first.

Selective Crafting Procedure

1 Prepare the required materials.
2 Save the game.
3 Load the save game.
4 Craft the weapon.
5 If not satisfied with the result, proceed to Step 3 and repeat.

Selective Shopping

What Is Selective Shopping?

The items that is sold by shops changes their stat by skipping 24 hours. You can keep on skipping until you get the wanted stat of the weapon you want to buy.

You Need A Lot Of In-Game Currency

Buying a legendary weapon will cost you quite a large sum of eddies - around 100,000~200,000 euro dollars, to be specific. Make sure to save up.
