Weapon types (攻撃属性) is a gameplay mechanic introduced in Trails of Cold Steel. It assigns a distinctive attribute to physical attacks and works together with combat links.


The varied weapons wielded in battle by playable characters have affinities for dealing certain types of damage—slash, pierce, thrust, and strike. Enemies may have a weakness to particular types of damage, and having the right character deliver a physical attack raises the chance of that enemy becoming "unbalanced," which opens them up to a free follow-up attack from their combat link partner.
