Burst Arts are an additional mechanic that adds a layer of dynamism to the combat in God Eater 3. Below we will discuss how to unlock Burst Arts, utilize them, and then upgrade them for increased efficiency.
God Eater 3 Burst Arts
Burst Arts are special techniques within the combat system of God Eater 3 that allow you to extend or enhance your existing attacks with unique new moves and abilities.
The buffs you receive from these Burst Arts focus on damage and power while some also grant you a situational advantage when attacking, like inflicting damage on a downed Aragami.
Similar to how Blood Arts worked in the previous installments of the series with a little twist, you can equip three different Blood Arts at a time. These pertain to each of the three mediums of combat i.e. Ground, Aerial, and during Dash.
All Burst Arts are passive moves, so they will modify your weapon attacks without requiring you to input a special command.
Therefore, basically, you can press the same button you will do for a particular attack as before, but this time, with Burst Arts being equipped, you will get a sweet damage buff.
Leveling up Burst Arts do not require any additional materials to be collected.
Instead, simply using the attacks that are associated with this Burst Arts frequently, will earn you the XP points that contribute to the overall level of the Arts and subsequently upgrade them to a higher variation.
With that said, due to the scaling of this progression system, especially on higher levels, you will need to take down high–level enemies and complete high–Ranked missions (around Rank 5).
A good farming tactic is to replay Ein’s Request #2 (after you have completed Ein’s Request #1) at Rank 5. During this task, you will face low–level Aragami, Ogretails, Zygotes, and Dreadpikes, all in a time limit of 40 minutes.
The trick here is to use a Rank 1 weapon so you can build up your Burst Arts (without instantly killing the enemies) and have them utilized as soon possible to contribute to your overall Rank.
Multiple repetitions of this mission will allow you to level up your Burst Arts like crazy! One of the three effects stated below, visually, will represent every Burst Art:
- Crescent: Oracle energy is sent out in a crescent–like shape.
- Rage Smash: A shockwave coupled with Oracle energy.
- Pillars of Heaven: Pillars or vertical beams of Oracle energy are created around the player.
