Atlas Fallen Weapons – Weapons in Atlas Fallen are pieces of offensive equipment that are used by the player’s character to inflict damage to Enemies and Bosses. Atlas Fallen features three weapons: the Dunecleaver, Sandwhip, and Knuckledust. Each of these weapons has its own set of moves and combos. You can only equip two of these weapons at a time, allowing you to choose the best melee weapon that fits your playstyle depending on the situation.
Atlas Fallen Weapon Types
Your main equipment piece in Atlas Fallen will rely on the Gauntlet. The Gauntlet has the ability to shift into the available weapon pieces in the game, which consist of three diverse weapon types: Whip, Cleaver, and Fist. In the game, these are known as the Dunecleaver, Sandwhip, and Knuckledust.
However, these weapons are not readily available at the start of the game. Players will need to collect Shards and Catalyzer Pieces to reforge the Gauntlet and gain access to the different weapon equipment.
Players can equip up to two of the three weapons at a time. The dynamic of combat in Atlas Fallen heavily depends on the available upgrades that strengthen or grant additional abilities to each weapon type. During combat, players can also gain momentum, which increases each
Atlas Fallen Sandwhip
The Sandwhip is a weapon specialized for quick attacks that work decently in both close and mid-range combat. It works as a dagger when the whip is not extended. This weapon is good for building up the momentum bar.
You can also use this weapon for crowd control and grapple onto enemies as well as crystallize them to stop them in their place. Once the enemies are crystallized, you can switch to the Hammer to shatter the crystallized enemies.
Atlas Fallen Dunecleaver
The Dunecleaver is a heavy weapon capable of dealing massive damage, as well as shattering crystallized enemies when performing a shattering attack. It is a heavy equipment piece that deals AoE attacks to clear a number of enemies as long as they are within range.
Because of its weight, it is a bit on the slow side, but the weapon has a high damage output perfect for AoE attacks and crowd control. This weapon works in tandem with the Whip. As you use the sword whip to build up the momentum bar and crystallize enemies, you can switch to this weapon to deal the shattering blow and deal massive damage to crystallized enemies.
Atlas Fallen Knuckledust
The Knuckledust is a quick-hitting weapon that deals decent enough damage to enemies. This weapon isn’t really effective when facing a group of enemies as it is designed specifically for one-on-one encounters. It is ideally used when facing special types or stronger enemies or when fighting a boss.
