Devil's Hatred (Adds an additional attack after defeating an enemy)

Demon's Cry is a Combat Bracer in NieR: Automata. Demon's Cry is widely considered as the best weapon in the game. Its design resembles a demon's fangs. The damage may not be the best but their special abilities make up for what it's lacking. It increases your attack speed and with Devil's Hatred, it creates a shockwave after killing an enemy, useful for fighting multiple enemies at once. Combat Bracers are Weapons that are equipped on both hands and are different from the other bladed weapons in the game. Combat Bracers are also the fastest weapons in the game with also the lowest damage output out of all the weapon types.

Demon's Cry NieR Automata Weapon Story

Demon's Cry Level 1 Weapon Story

"Once, there was a gentle angel who came to earth to provide salvation for those in need. Whether it was curing illnesses, offering blessings, or cheering the sad, he was always there when needed."

Demon's Cry Level 2 Weapon Story

"The angel, however, provided aid to sinners and non-believers as well—an act which was strictly forbidden. Each time he did so, a single white feather would fall away from his glorious wings."

Demon's Cry Level 3 Weapon Story

"One day, the angel came across a young girl with an illness that pained her deeply. But he could do nothing to help the child, for all his feathers had long since fallen off."

Demon's Cry Level 4 Weapon Story

"The angel cursed both himself and the cruelty of the world. The
resulting hatred stained his body and his wings, turning them
both black as night. Then, crying tears of blood, he brought his
hands to the girl's neck."

      Seems like there's an error on enhancement materials requirements, you need 3 pyrites and 3 cut wires instead of 3 small gears and 2 black pearls. (or is it just me ?)

        Got one on B and then again on C. Did not reset to lvl. 1, did not dupe. I guess the pair is complete now?

          I like the imagery of the angel's hatred staining him black, it reminds me of Eve during his fight against 9S and 2B.

            So many of these stories are about altruistic individuals who suffer terrible fates. While these characters are ostensibly, "good," the reality is that they are just weak or blind.

              The Demon's Cry description explains the truth behind a demon's cry.

              The Angel's Folly description reveals the foolishness of an angel.

              It's not that hard people.

                Seems as if Devil's Hatred can activate off of itself, so the resulting chain explosions can clear crowds nicely. Also seems to apply a massive knockback to survivors, generally.
