      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.

          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.

            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?

                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.
