Your favorite weapon hand/feet combo?

#1 Posted by xyzygy (10077 posts) -

I don't mean combo as in the moves, but which combination of weapons do you like to equip Bayonetta with? 
 
I find myself really liking my current Shuraba and Durga (Lightning) mix, but I also love my Shuraba/Onyx Rose too. When I'm using Durga on my hands I put Scarborough Fair on the feet, but I just got Kilgore so I'll have to experiment with that.

I have only finished the game once, but the combination of weapons I have stuck to is the shuraba and the standard guns.

Shuraba and Lt. Col. Kilgore on the feet, Kilgore just does too much damage to not have, seemed way too slow in the hands to be of any real use though.

Kulshedra-Odette is my favorite combination by far.

I like the Katana best. I've gotten Odette now so im experimenting with it now. 
Claws are okay. But i dont like Kulshedra - maybe i just have to practice more with it.  
And i really want to try to find kilgore on this playthrough.

@TsuHai: Kilgore is insane. I think you will have to find three LP peices to get it, and make sure to buy the Alt. version in the shop so you can put them on your feet.

The Katana is sweet imo

My normal setup is claws on hands and feet (usually lightning) with the katana and lightning claws as my secondary.  Both of these setups allow for both powerful attacks designed to kill enemies quickly but more importantly both of these setups allow for quick, low damage per hit combos as well to boost the meter.  I switch to sword for multiple enemies where the PKP wicked weave will hit multiple targets (often for floating heads) and claws for the more dangerous angels I need to get rid of fast. 
 
The other notable setup I use is the whip with kilgore.  I use this any time I'm going against kinships (the badly punned boat guys) because the analog stick spin + whip attack is amazing for destroying groups of missiles once you're in witch time as it swirls around you taking out anything in close proximity. 
 
I suppose I should confess that I on occasion use the kilgor (possibly) bug, usually against main bosses at which point I use H: guns F: lightning claws - H: guns F: kilgore

Shuraba and the scarborough fair are all that is needed to own that game even on hardest modes.
 
but Now i'm using Pillow talk and the scarborough fair... I dont care for the claws, whip  or  kilgore. 
 
(i totally edited this because i got the name of the sword wrong)

@marioncobretti: I don't think the weapons are intended to be upgrades.  Really if you just use scarborough fair on hands and feet you can own at the game.  Most of the weapons aren't really upgrades so much as they are alternatives.  I like certain weapons because they compliment the way I play the game, other folks have different opinions.

@marioncobretti: I really like Pillow Talk, but only when you charge it up. It will slice and dice! But it's regular form is weak and doesn't even do Wicked Weaves...

@xyzygy:
after you have charged the sword and then attack with it when it looks all fuzzy... every single attack is counted as a wicked weave..because I beat one of the WW alfheims only using the pillowtalk  by just charging it and then slashing blindly.

@marioncobretti: Oh seriously... well that's good to know!

Pillow Talk and Lt. Col Killgore do it for me.

I've not really delved into the specifics, but shuraba and odette seem to work well. Especially useful when you can freeze some enemies on hard to get a few hits on them.

Snake whip and fire/electric claws.

#17 Posted by Jadeskye (4368 posts) -

i stick with scarborough fair.

Pillow Talk or Sharuba coupled with Durga is usually my #1 choice. I hated Durga when I first got them but once the penny dropped and I learned how to charge them effectively they became essential. For the second set it's usually Sai Fong (not really powerful but stupidly good fun) and  Scarborough Fair.

I just started back on this game again and am loving sword/claws on hands/feet (I'm playing as Jeanne and as the names of her weapons are different, I don't know the ones that Bayonetta calls the weapons by).

I played through the entire game without even realising I could equip weapons, pretty dumb eh.

I like Shubara as my weapon and Durga as my feet weapon, but I'm only on chapter 6 right now, so that could change, but right now it's tearing everything apart.
