NieR Automata Weapons Details

There are many different melee weapons to find in NieR: Automata. You can obtain new weapons by purchasing them from shops, opening up chests you find in the world, or through completing certain quests. Each weapon you obtain can be used by all characters in any playthrough, so long as you have obtained the weapon already.

Each weapon can be upgraded up to three times in most locations. Upgrading wepaons increases the damage they deliver, as well as opens up other abilities that make them more powerful in combat. Later when you find a specific vendor named Masamune that upgrad your weapons further once you find the required materials and money needed to do so. Masamune is located in the Castle of the Forest Area, near the far end of the castle.
