Weapon Story

 

 Level 1

 

The more old records I read, the more fascinated I become by the species known as humans. We machines must do all we can to preserve these precious artifacts and continue to record their contents."

 

 Level 2

 

I see from the records how important predation and reproduction were to human survival.  And yet, they viewed such acts as sinful.  I wonder why?

 

 Level 3

 

I found a famous human book today, but after reading it ten times, it still makes no sense to me.  What possible attraction could there be to such a thing?

 

 Level 4

 

Eureka!  It seems the answer was in front of me all along!  I am simply incapable of comprehending anything - about humanity OR the world in general!  Ah, how wonderful it is to live in a world swaddled in mystery!

      Idk if the Machine Brand stat is that good, but apparently it's max +500 dmg. Not max 500 enemies. I still need to test if it's 500 cumulative damage(light attack and heavy attack combined) or if it's both +500 for light attacks and + 500 for heavy attacks. If it's the later, Machine Brand weapons are probably the best weapons stat wise since damage chips are multiplicative. Need more testing. Will try to update.

        Kills with the Shockwave don't count as weapon kills.
        In other words don't use it if you're trying to rack up the number of defeated enemies with your Machine Brand weapons.

        Also kills made by your partner don't count as well.

          Weapon story updated. Upgrades table needs to be rechecked as much of the info was incorrect. Atk values, combo values,, and abilities for Lv 4 were updated, but the rest of the table needs to be updated with the correct data.
