Lies of P – Most Powerful Weapons List

Lies of P is a retelling of the classic Pinocchio story of a puppet who wants to become a real boy. But make it a Soulsbourne game. I’m not sure this is the mashup people were looking for but we’re definitely here for this one. If you’re unfamiliar with the genre term Soulsbourne, it comes from game developer FromSoftware’s masterpieces Dark Souls and Bloodborne. They are characterised by their dark elaborate worlds and unforgiving gameplay.

Lies of P follows this genre to a T but is unique in its own storytelling. As a puppet caught in a web of lies, you must figure out what has poisoned the land around you. Utilise a myriad of blades and hilts, to defeat the crushing monsters around you. Construct the most powerful swords by finding the blades and hilts that best suit your purpose and playstyle.

In this guide we’ll go through all the most powerful weapons of Lies of P to keep you alive in Krat and how to get them. Most of these weapons will depend on your specific style of gameplay, whether you go for speed over strength or are more focused on technique and motivity. And there’s an added choice of customising the blade and hilt which we’ll discuss later on as well.

   

Greatsword of Fate

Blade: Greatsword of Fate Blade | Hilt: Greatsword of Fate Handle

One of the starting weapons that you can get in Lies of P it is nonetheless one of the best weapons in the game. Actually, all of the starting weapons in the game are great and it’ll depend on your playstyle for which one you choose. The good thing is that you won’t be locked into this one starting weapon and you’ll be able to buy them all as you progress throughout the game.

Basically, it’s hard to go wrong with making any weapon out of this blade. Take advantage of the Greatsword of Fate’s high-attack blade with mix it up with other weapons to give it more speed or an elemental attack.

Acidic Crystal Spear

Blade: Acidic Crystal Spear Blade | Hilt: Acidic Crystal Spear Handle

The Acidic Crystal Spear falls under the Dagger blade type, which may not be the popular choice for everyone. It definitely prioritises attack movement over strength, but if you’re finding yourself getting overwhelmed by a lot of enemies then you may want to switch over to a smaller weapon like this. As an additional point, the Acidic Crystal Spear’s ability can also land hits from further away, making it a great short and long-range weapon.

As the name suggests the Acidic Crystal Spear deals Acid damage and it’s Blade Art Radiate increases it. You’ll find Decay useful later on in the game as it will increase destruction damage to enemies.

Recommended Combo:

Big Pipe Wrench

Lies of P, Soulsbourne, Best Weapons, Big Pipe Wrench

Blade: Big Pipe Wrench Head | Hilt: Big Pipe Wrench Handle

Sometimes the best weapon is just a big ole pipe that can give you that big ole bonk. This is not one for the uninitiated who have trouble blocking and timing their hits. Instead, this big slow boi is ready to smack down any enemy. It’s a great one to mix with an elemental hilt or blade such as acid or electric to give it that additional zap. You can also mix it up with a lighter handle that will reduce its slow-hitting style.

Recommended Combo:

BladeHiltWeapon Combo
Big Pipe Wrench HeadKrat Police Baton HandleQuicker than normal strikes for such a heavy weapon. Good all-rounder when you don’t know what else to pick.
Acidic Crystal Spear BladeBig Pipe Wrench HandleHeavy Acid attacks on targets in front of you. Good for acid-vulnerable bosses.

Keep moving along the path past some Enemies, barrels, and minecarts until you get to a large cavern. Cross the narrow makeshift bridge and then climb the ladder to the right to find the chest.

 

Salamander Dagger

Blade: Salamander Dagger Blade | Hilt: Salamander Dagger Handle

We’ve gone through the benefits of acid and electric attacks, but if you’re looking to head things up with some fire damage, then the Salamander Dagger is the only way to go. Fire damage works amazingly against infected non-puppet enemies and this weapon will unleash a considerable amount of fire damage.

The dagger itself is fast and short ranged but with the right handle can extend its reach and subsequent fire damage. You can even go the other way around and just improve on its already fast speed.

Recommended Combo:

BladeHiltWeapon Combo
Salamander Dagger BladeBooster Glaive HandleWield fire damage in wide swings and sudden leaps forward. Good for fire-vulnerable crowds.

Two Dragons Sword

The Two Dragon Sword is a Special Weapon that you can obtain in Lies of P, and unlike the other weapons on this list cannot be dissassembled. And can be obtained after killing a certain boss. In the case of this Katana, you’ll need to defeat the Puppet-Devouring Green Monster in the Barren Swamp (Area 8) and trade its Ergo with Aldoro for this sword.

The Two Dragons Sword offers both decent attack speed and fluid motions when striking. But perhaps its best feature is its charge attack. You’ll need to time the swishing animation correctly so that the weapon flashes just as an enemy’s attack is about to land. Doing so will cause a riposte slash.

Blade Fable Art: Emergency Dodge – Dodge quickly forward. Uses an extra Fable slot to perform up to 2 attacks.
Handle Fable Art: Wind of Swords – Blow a wind of swords forward. Deals AoE damage to enemies in front of you.
Hidden Mechanic: When charging the Heavy Attack of the Two Dragons Sword, the sword will flash. This indicator is the timing for a perfect parry, which if properly executed will trigger a counterattack.

Acquire: Exchange it with the merchant Aldoro for 1x Puppet-Devouring Green Hunter’s Ergo.

 

Proof of Humanity

Proof of Humanity is akin to the Two Dragon Sword and is another of the Special Weapons that you can get in Lies of P. This time you’ll need to defeat the Nameless Weapon in Under the Abyss and exchange its Ergo with Explorer Hugo.

Proof of Humanity is a fast dance of slashes and cyclonic hits. You’ll spin around while striking foes and with that Grind skill the addition of critical hit chances will make you a whirling blade tornado.

Blade Fable Art: Link Slash – Slash an enemy in front of you. Uses an extra Fable slot to slash up to 3 more times.
Handle Fable Art: Grind – Increases Critical Hit Chance temporarily.

How To Assemble Weapons In Lies of P

The most powerful weapons in Lies of P are going to be made by you rather than being found in the game. You’ll only get access to this feature after you save Geppetto in the main story quest. Save him and when you return to Hotel Krat, you’ll be able to gain access to the Enigma Assembly Tool.

Weapon assembly in this game isn’t that complicated as your sword only consists of two parts – the Blade and the Hilt. One sword will utilise one blade and one hilt, which you’re able to mix and match. Meaning that if you find a weapon with a strong blade but don’t like its attack style then you’ll be able to change the hilt to amend it.

Basically what this means is that your Hilt choice will determine how your weapon actually swings and stabs, the attack patterns and motions, as well as what kind of build it’s best with. Meanwhile, most of the raw damage and bonuses come from the blade – meaning that if you find a weapon you like the feel of, you should change the blade to better deal with opponents, but keep the hilt.

 

Lies of P

Lies of P is a thrilling soulslike that takes the story of Pinocchio, turns it on its head, and sets it against the darkly elegant backdrop of the Belle Epoque era. It’s out now on the PlayStation 5|4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC – Steam.
