Tough call for me.

I havent played this game in years, but i have very fond memories and I'm not so patiently waiting for a remaster or BC.

That said, Tonfa or Lunar for me. But they're all fun for different reasons.

Dragon Sword all the way. Especially in NG2, I absolutely love the moveset and animations.

Same, but I never really experimented too much with the others besides the Lunar, which I also love.

It's hard because every weapon in this game was really badass, but I guess second for me is between the Claws and Flail. Had a lot of fun weapon running with both of those. So much speed and delimb potential!

Least favorite is the DCTF/BotA. Aside from the strong spammy moves (360Y, YYYY) I could just never get into a good flow with the swords, it felt stiff. Which was a bummer because obviously dual swords is badass. Just never got into 'em.

DCTF had some of my fav moves but I've forgotten the inputs by now. I think XXX>Y was the one for my fav which was three slashes then a quick double downwards slash at the end. Its longer fancier moves are hard to get off in combat though. Notably its running Y is amazing for mages cause its fast, delimbs and you can instantly go into an OT. The multi-dash-slash spam move was real cool too and actually useful. that one being XX>XXXX I think.

Tonfa were a bit too technical for me to get into, I couldn't really be bothered IIRC. Always good to abuse Alexei's power up with 360Y though. Claws were really cool but something always put me off using them. Might've been them being a bit weak in raw power?
Lunar really annoyed me cause I did a Mentor weapon run with it which didn't count for some reason so I had to redo it. Which I did immediately so bit of an unfair hate on for it but I also never found it that fun to play with anyway. The move where you swing the morning stars out for multi-hits was always badass though.
Scythe is so strong but again, kinda hard or impractical to make use of its cooler moves. Especially with YYY and Jump XXY being so strong. The >X starter was cool but IIRC was a bit vulnerable, especially going into the drop move at the end.

I'll just say Dargon Sword I guess

I've had more easy success with the Talon's or Lunar butt goddamn, that gets boring really fast, although it's not as if there's a reason not to abuse the abusable things on those weapons.
That some nice sweet juicy gigatosis!

Dragon Sword for sure. Playing with that felt godly. I loved playing Ch 1, 2 and 11 and ToV 1 with it.

Kusari-gama second, but hard to master. And the combo cancelling on the Tonfa was very cool stuff too!
