I understand this is a relatively pointless and unimportant topic, but I always wondered how people decided the Murasama and Long Sword do the most damage out of all the swords, and the Armor Breaker, Stun Blade, and Machete all do the least amount of damage. How was this info found? There's not necessarily a "damage counter" in this game, and the upgrade menu simply says "5", or whatever your upgrade level on damage is. Anyone got any ideas? Like I said, I know this is a stupid question, but I'm a stupid guy. What're you gonna do? :P

Two ways, it was noted in the guide book which had all the underlying percentages and statistics of the game. Also things like Agression% increases from enemies per difficulty mode were noted in there.

The other is very simple, we went to a boss with a 100% hitpoint bar and hit him once with each weapon and saw what did how much damage. Murasama and Long Sword came out on top. Armor Breaker and Stun aren't the worst, the Machette does the least damage. In raw 'stats' the Murasama does 3.5 damage when fully leveled, while the Machette does 0.5 when un-upgraded. Regular HF blade does 3.0 when fully leveled, etc.

EDIT: found the original file from the guide, you can view it here:

EDIT: should be noted the Pincer stats are for uncharged attacks.
EDIT 2: Fox Blade is ommited as it was a DLC weapon back then; it has the same stats as the HF-Blade with an added special feature.

Huh, to be honest with you, I had no idea I'd get a response, much less this fast! In any case, I'm grateful for the info. I had no clue a guide book existed, and with the weapon stats to boot! So in other words, thank you! This is all I wanted to know. :D
