Type-3 Lance is a Spear in NieR: Automata. Type-3 Lance is an outdated YoRHa spear built to imitate ancient human weaponry. It is an old model but still a reliable spear. This weapon increases your defense and with Finish Blast, it adds an additional attack after finishing a combo. Spears are Weapons with long reach with a unique moveset. They perform powerful attacks, though they are relatively slower than Small Swords, their sweeping attacks do provide excellent maneuverability of crowds, although their attack patterns are usually catered for fighting a single enemy rather than facing a crowd.

An old YoRHa spear, built to imitate ancient human weaponry. Old-fashioned, but reliable.


Where to Find Type-3 Lance in NieR Automata

  • In the Flooded City. Go to the sloped building that is in the water that is near a waterfall. There should be a red platform with a rocket to the left of the building and a school bus in the distance to the right. Go towards the high slope of the building and look towards another waterfall in the distance. The building between you and the waterfall contains a chest. It is possible to jump and make your way over to that building. The weapon is in the big chest on the roof of the building.
  • One method to make the jump is to have a short sword equipped. Take a running jump, double jump, and at the apex of your double jump do a dash forward. Immediately slash 4 times with the sword. Then hold jump to slowly descend with your pod, when near the building hit light attack while descending to do a spin kick upwards to try and grab the ledge of the building and clamber up.
  • Another method of doing this is to remote control one of the flying machines to easily fly over the sea on it.
  • Yet another method consists of using the Missile pod program to boost forward after a double jump and a dash.


Type-3 Lance NieR Automata Weapon Story

Type-3 Lance Level 1 Weapon Story

"The unadorned lance pierced her foes with machine-like accuracy. The grind of metal on bone in tandem with the pained screams of her victims created sweet music in the mercenary girl's ears."

Type-3 Lance Level 2 Weapon Story

"Day after day, she returned to the battlefield to compose more music. Here, a giant of a man, fat rippling from his sides. There, a slimmer gentleman whose bones would surely produce a sweeter sound. Ah, who to stab first?!"

Type-3 Lance Level 3 Weapon Story

"The girl fought for an age, stabbing uncountable foes in an effort to find the ideal scream—that sonorous, bone-grinding sound. Yet perfection eluded her no matter how hard she tried. Would she ever find what she sought?"

Type-3 Lance Level 4 Weapon Story

"Suddenly, she turned to find a fine-looking hunk of meat at her side. Stabbing it produced a scream so pure, she couldn't help but smile. She continued to smile as she stabbed, no longer able to recall that the hunk was her own child."

      And I thought that the Cypress Stick was hard to obtain. I eventually figured out how to do that and now there's this. The old double jump/pod throw combo that eventually got me to the Cypress Stick doesn't get you far enough to bridge the gap you need to cross to get to this thing, although it's effing tantalisingly close.

        Okay I really shouldn't complain about a free website offering game advice, but please is there a way to embed some youtube videos onto this page or something. I frequently find the advice on this website for getting items to be incorrect or a much more difficult way of doing things. Ps you need to use 2B and do a double jump then R1+X to get to it. It's very easy if you do it that way, and impossible or excruciatingly time consuming if you try doing it the way this page suggests.

          For me using the missile pod attachment to make the jump was way easier than using a short sword attack combo. I just fully charged the missile ability then did a jump-dash-jump and then released the missile at the apex of the second jump. Doing it this way I didn't even need to glide down the rest of the way with the pod becasue by the time the missile ability ended I was already above the roof of the building.

            Very easy to get. Just hack one of the flying saucer robots with 9S and glide your way onto the building. Don't hold the jump all the time, just 2 seconds at a time, release for a second, repeat.

              I used the A160: Missile pod ability. Pre-charge it, double jump, use the A160, at the end of it dash and slow fall with the pod.

              • To add on top of the things to do to reach the building, pressing the R1 and X button at the same time will allow you to do a sort of flying kick with the help of the Pod. This allows you to gain distance much like the evades but there are certain frames that don't allow you to do it.

                  What also helps to reach the building is getting a few running-speed and dash-distance-increase plug-ins so you have some room for mistakes and makes the jump fairly easy.
