The R040: Blade is both a defensive and offensive program, it triggers the Pod to spin around with a blade that damages and staggers enemies that are hit. Pod Programs are active abilities that are slotted to your A.I. Companion, the Pod, they function similarly to NieR Replicant's Sealed Verses, allowing the player to instruct the Pod/s to execute a special attack. But unlike a Sealed Verse in NieR Replicant, a cooldown occurs after using a skill instead of a magic meter.
Spins a Pod around the player at high speed, wreaking havoc on any enemies it touches.
