Weapons are pieces of equipment in Absolver, that you can equip at a cost of shards. They allow you to access new combat decks, which in the case of swords has different moves unique to it. Three weapons can be found from Bosses, and all others can be found through random drops in the Combat Trials and bought in the essence shop. You can check out for an overview of weapons and armor.

Weapons also provide access to cut damage, which is reduced by a different defensive stat than the blunt damage that bare handed moves deal. Cut damage deals chip damage through the enemy's guard, this can be reduced by the opposing player by equipping a weapon themselves.

Golden weapon variants can be bought from the essence shop, they are however functionally the same as their non-gold counterparts.





Weapons have a durability, once broken it folds back in your inventory and cannot be used for a set amount of time.


Tension Shards allow you to use powers and equip weapon. Tension Shards fill up when you perform successful defensive actions or taking damage.


Damage bonus

Weapons give different damage bonus to each move depending on to the Combat Style the attack belongs to. 

Damage Type

The total damage given by a move with a weapon is split between blunt and cut damage.


Cut reduction

Weapons have the property of reducing the chip damage received when blocking attacks from other weapons by a ratio. Having a cut reduction of 1 means a 100% of the incoming chip damage is negated, and having a cut reduction of 0 means the incoming chip damage is unmodified. 


Taking too much consecutive damage causes the player's weapon to drop to the ground, where it can be picked up either by anyone.


Folding Back

Players can fold back their own weapon to regain a portion of the shard they spent to summon the weapon, depending on the remaining durability. This can also be useful when being close to be disarmed, as it will deny the enemy from picking up the weapon. Notice that players cannot block while performing the folding animation.  



 Wargloves are a type of weapon in Absolver. They don't grant you access to any new moves, but they do allow you to use a new combat deck, and deal more damage.
