Weapons Guide

Breaching Cross is gives you a fast and safe option to delete armor. Incredibly useful

Rolling Knuckle makes your combo infinite (really useful). Paired with Hermes attack speed becomes broken. If it stacks with Artemis you can cosplay Gene from Godhand.

Long Knuckle is really good. It makes attacks much safer. For example, it allows stationary mashing against exploding chariots.

Draining Cutter is useful.

Concentrated Knuckle is xtremely useful. It paired with Hermes attack speed and a decent damage boon it becomes extremely good

Quake Cutter is really bad and actually downgrade. Uppercut has a long recovery and no invulnerability frames. Landing animation makes recovery longer and still no invulnerability – all for a subpar damage bonus.

Flying Cutter is decent. While the damage increase is nice changeup time is really slow. And I have a feeling that it slows the animation speed of the uppercut, making you vulnerable for a longer period.

Rush Kick is really good. It has a high range and good mobility combined. With Draining Cuter Zagreus turns into a vampiric monk of destruction. Have no idea how it interacts with magnetic pull

Explosive Upper is useful, especially early. But paired with Demeter Aspect its becomes double broken.

The game treats dash-special valid for the aspect buff, so you get 5 blasts per uppercut. I didn’t know this so I used a dash-special against Hades to dodge his lounge and blast that annoying archer he summoned and I obliterated the archer and cut 25% of big man’s hitpoints.
