In the final post of our Infinity Blade 2 Weapon Class Series we’re going to cover the “Heavy” class.
The Heavy class in Infinity Blade 2 consists of large and powerful weapons, such as a battle axe or mace. The main advantage of the heavy weapons as they deal a TON of damage to opponents. One swing from a heavy weapon can leave the boss devastated.
There are two limitations to using the heavy class. First, you will swing slower so the heavy class is best used on a slower or lumbering enemy. Secondly, you will be unable to dodge, but you will instead be able to block directionally. If you read the attacks correctly, you can block every attack that may come while wielding a heavy weapon and take advantage of the increased damage with every blow.
If you manage to attack twice from the same direction, you will go into “directional attack mode” and you will be shown where to swing. Do it perfectly to score ultra mega damage!
