Iron Will NieR Automata Weapon Story

Iron Will Level 1 Weapon Story

"The sword's blade, dulled by years of idleness, was—as its name implied—a mere iron hunk. Its blood-drenched youth was little more than a series of rusted memories which grated against its pockmarked steel."

Iron Will Level 2 Weapon Story

"Who could wield this hunk of iron now that its edge was gone? Who might love it when all it could do was bash dully against a foe instead of cutting through flesh and bone? Who would devote themselves to such insanity?"

Iron Will Level 3 Weapon Story

"The sword sighed softly, pleased to finally be at rest. But before it could peacefully crumble into dust, a group of power-hungry fools took it up and denied its reverie anew."

Iron Will Level 4 Weapon Story

"Red rust was the weapon's tears. The blood, fat, and muscle it tore through was proof of its curse. Now let it hew bone once more! Let it ravage flesh! Let it do all this and more as atonement for its sins!"
