Arm Legion

The third Legion, formerly Jin's, is earned most of the way through File 04. This sucker doesn't need weapons when it's got those massive punchy fists. Well, okay it does have gun mountings that it will use every once in a while, either to shoot finger bullets or fiery blasts. While it's the third-fastest Legion, it's only slightly slower than the Sword Legion. It also has some neat extra combo options with its Special Action, and using it to throw stuff can be quite damaging to the bad guys.

  • Grab - The Arm Legion is unique in that when it it sent out with ZL, it will grab the enemy and pull it back to the player rather than just attack it right there.
  • Lifting and Throwing - The Arm Legion can pick up and throw various objects. Hold ZL and press A while the Legion is near a liftable object. Sometimes these will open the way forward like metal shutters, and sometimes they are weapons that can be thrown, either by releasing ZL or pressing A again. Hilariously, the signs that the Arm Legion can throw carry the brand name "Throwme".
  • Legion Special Action: Wear Armor - Press L and the Arm Legion will encase itself around you, allowing you to wear it like armor. You'll float off the ground, allowing you to coast over any hazards on the floor

  • Skill: Round Bullet - Activate this skill and the Arm Legion will spin, shooting bullets in all directions. It's a quick and far reaching attack, but doesn't have a lot of punch to it. Still, it can be useful in a crowd.

    • Ground Combo with Baton - After the Sync, Sync again.
    • Ground Combo with Blaster - After the Sync, attack again and Sync again.
