Equipping Weighted Strikes is Not Recommended

Prioritizing Weighted Strikes will waste precious Cell or Gear slots. Instead, focus on building your Cunning or Overpower perks to maximize damage output.

Top 3 Recommended Chain Bladess

1. Inferno's Fangs


The Inferno's Fangs bonus perk of extra damage after the 10th successful hit is very useful for the fast-hitting Chain Blades. It also has Overpower & 2 power slots, making it one of the best Chain Blades for aggressive Slayers.

Chain Blades - Play Tips & Techniques

Focus on Behemoth Tails & Limbs

Focus on Behemoth Tails & Limbs

As someone with high DPS, your main objective is to cut and sever Behemoth parts. Coordinate with your team on which parts to cut first, but it's recommended to take out tails first to disable some Behemoth attacks.

Build For Critical Damage

Build For Critical Damage

One of the biggest advantages of Chain Blades is the ability to deal high DPS thanks to its high attack speed. This makes it synergize really well with the Cunning perk!

Dish Out Full Combos On Staggered Monsters

Dish Out Full Combos On Staggered Monsters

Feel free to dish out full combo strings on staggered or knocked down Behemoths. The amount of time they're knocked down will allow you to perform a full combo.

Utilize Your Mobility

Utilize Your Mobility

As a Chain Blades Wielder, you are able to dodge almost any attack, both by using the standard dodge or using your special, even mid combo.

Maintain High Stamina At All Times

Maintain High Stamina At All Times

One of the inherent weaknesses of the Chain Blades is its high dependency on stamina, both in movement, and in sustaining the Blade Spin, so always keep an eye on your stamina bar.

Carry Concussive Grenades For Booping

Carry Concussive Grenades Instead

To make up for the lack of ability to boop, it's recommended to carry Concussive Grenades in your quick item slots, especially when hunting interruptible Behemoths.

Blue 1

Booping can be made very easy with +3 evasion. Dodge then immediately light attack into a vulnerable beast and they will go down. Works about 95% for me with no damage taken. When the booping hitbox is off the ground, use reaper's dance to jump up and follow up with light attack. Works just as well.
