So it's all legacy weapons from 8. Xiahou Yuan's transforming rod/bow and Yinping's flagellum. Though the latter looks to just be a giant double sided mace now instead of being on chains.

Mace's gimmick is all Flow attacks besides Downed Flow can have their finishers charged by holding down Square.

Rod bow's gimmick looks to be homing projectiles when using charged trigger attacks.

Flute has a weight attached to it for extra range . Apparently it leaves out sound waves that produce different attacks based on what trigger you use.

Not keen on straight up legacy weapons at the current price point so I'll just wait and see.

The queen Zhenji is getting her weapon back, good. The effects on that screenshot are looking pretty.

I noticed too that Yinping's weapon is a bit different now, the chains aren't here anymore. Her weapon is now closer to Masanoris's, without the spikes part.

Oh, also Zhenji now having a flail part for her flute is interesting. I guess it'll work kinda like the whip for some of her attacks (reminds me of Cia from Hyrule Warriors with her Staff and the detachable whip part). In a way it's a mix of the flute and the chain whip, both weapons were always good fit for Zhenji given her femme fatale and b****y persona. That's neat.

They could do the same for Cheng Pu if they want. A long spear with a detachable part, it could go well with the snake motif. There's a magical girl in an anime who's using that weapon, but I don't remember who. There's a boss in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice who's using that kind of weapon as well.

Screenshots of the default weapon models.

Rolling Weight: https://www.gamecity.ne.jp/smusou8/images/dlc/weapon/addweapon4-2-1.jpg (New weapon model too).

Ah so rolling weight is for Yinping albeit with no chains. Also, Interesting that they incorporate whip (maybe Crop whip?) to Zhenji's flute.

I heard rumor this will be the last DLC batch? Can someone confirmed it?

There are the DLC scenarios of Lu Su, Zhong Hui, Cao Pi and Fa Zheng coming this month as well. SP3 is the last one yes, unless they announce more SP once SP3 is over lol.

The chain part of Zhenji's flute can be seen in her weapon model.

We need atleast 3 more Season Passes to make up for the lack of Xtreme Legends.

I wouldn't mind more, if they added something new. I don't want to see a repeat of SP2 and 3. If it's just new costumes, scenarios and weapons, I'd rather wait DW10.

I don't get hyped for costumes or legacy weapons so this season pass has been a bust. Especially not hyped at MORE Guan Yinping DLC adoration. She was barely a clone anyways as her move set was very different from Pang De. My fault for thinking someone like Huang Gai or Hua Xiong getting a big hammer instead of Yinping getting a tweaked version of her old weapon.

Well hypos next and for once I'm interested in some of those character choices. Saying all that id be ok with more season passes - too many flails, ballista spears etc.
