In this Nier Replicant guide, we’ll talk about how Nier Replicant weapons and endings are related, talk a bit about how it works, and then list each available sample and where to find them. Remember that you can improve any weapon by enhancing the purpose of the Word.
Endings and Weapons
The three Nier Replicant endings–namely, endings C, D, and E–require that you collect all 33 weapons.
However, once you complete the first half of the game – let’s call it Part 1 – you cannot return or complete any side quests from the first half. This means you have to make sure you’ve completed everything you need to before you can continue.

More importantly, you will need to collect all of the weapons listed below before moving on to the second half of the Nier Replicant remake.
Weapon Types in Nier Replicant
There are a total of three weapon types in Nier Replicant: one-handed, two-handed, and spears. Let’s break down each of these types.
The one-handed weapon in Nier Replicant is available to you in the first half of the game. It’s the fastest weapon, but does low damage. One-handed weapons focus on direction, limiting themselves to sprawling attacks.

Two-handed weapons in Nier Replicant are very slow, but deal far more damage than one-handed weapons, and are also good at dealing with groups of enemies.
Spears in Nier Replicant are somewhere between one-handed and two-handed weapons. They are faster than two-handed weapons and deal more damage than one-handed weapons. However, spears have directional attacks and are useless against groups of enemies. However, they have a favorable range of attack, which allows you to deal damage much earlier.
