Iron Pipe Notes and Tips
- Other Notes, Tips, and Trivia for Iron Pipe in NieR: Automata goes here.
At Level 4, it gives +10% Critical Hit Chance. Excellent weapon, especially when combined with a high level Critical Up chip.
The first few minutes of Nier:Replicant suddenly just made the Weapon's Story make sense to me. :(
I'm going to be sick.
Is this a nod to Silent Hill series or am I overthinking it?
I wonder if the weapon story implies that Father Nier is the canon Nier rather than Brother Nier.
I think it is only available for fishing in the A or the A and B routes. I fished in C/D for half an hour and caught nothing, loaded the mad songstress chapter as 2B and caught the iron pipe in about 5 seconds.
Fayt Leingod gonna be pissed someone stole his ultimate weapon.
I found this weapon early on, almost immediately, but died shortly after, and reloaded a save from before I had it. Since then I've spent HOURS fishing in sewers, and it WON'T SPAWN. Is this because I already had it, or because I'm using 9S or something?
Lvl. 4 great for light attack mashing due to lowered max combo compared to other small swords.
You can also find it in the sewer waters between the city ruins and the flooded city.
Can someone help me ? I m lvl 99 , i got all weapons except iron pipe. I got it in the firt run but accidently sold it . Now i need it to unlock the Y ending. is there a way to get it back? already tried to fish it again
Right in the feels...
Only on route A/B?
Agh, why is the whole wiki so incorrect & incomplete? Iron Pipe's first upgrade increases the stun/stagger chance. O well. Despite it's history & looks, this weapon is actually not that useless. Can deal brutal damage if it crit's with a maximum damage-roll.
Why Taro? Why do you do this to us?
That Level 4. Right in the feels.
