R040: Blade is a Pod Program in Nier: Automata.
Spins a Pod around the player at high speed, wreaking havoc on any enemies it touches.
Effects & Uses
- Spawns a blow-torch-like blade that spins around the player; damaging every enemy they hit.
- Charging with more pods increases the number of blades.
- Provides a semi-reliable barrier against all projectiles because it counts as a melee attack.
- R040: Blade is quite damaging but pod fire is disabled while active.
