Nioh 2 Blessed and Yokai Weapons Guide

Nioh 2 adds new special types of weapons for players to craft that can deal some crazy damage and have special properties. This Nioh 2 Blessed and Yokai Weapons guide will go over these new weapons and give an insight into how to craft and use them.

Nioh 2 Blessed and Yokai Weapons

Yokai weapons as the name suggests are corrupted weapons while Blessed ones are ‘clean’ weapons. Both types of weapons have their own unique properties and depending on the situation, one of them can be handier than the other.

Yokai Weapons

When you eliminate Yokai enemies in Nioh 2, you will obtain a special type of weapon called a ‘Yokai Weapon’. These weapons are much more powerful than regular weapons and they possess some interesting abilities.

What makes the Yokai weapons different than your usual weapons is that they are ‘corrupted’. This gives them the ability to inflict extra Ki damage and the Corruption Status Effect on the target.

This Corruption Status effect will further increase your damage by making the target weaker against Yokai Force and Ki damage.

Sentience Gauge
A very useful mechanic of the Yokai Weapons is the ‘Sentience Gauge’. You build up this gauge by dealing damage to enemies.

When it’s filled up to the brim, you go into an Awakened State, which makes your Yokai weapon even more powerful.

Just like Yokai weapons, blessed weapons also have special properties and are especially useful against Yokai enemies.
