Demonia Blaster, a 14 TMGs.
The Hero Class handles three special weapons: Sword Swords, Twin MachinegunsTwin Machine Guns, and TalisTalis; as well as GunbladeGunblades, common to all classes.

All are existing weapons, but when equipped as a Hero, their movesets have a completely different behavior in terms of Normal Attacks, Weapon Actions, Dodge Actions, and Photon Arts.
Heroes cannot use any of the existing PAs for these weapon types (even for weapons that have a built-in PA cannot be used). Therefore, the behavior and PAs relating to these weapon types are discussed in separate pages.

Weapon Swapping PA

One of the unique features of Heroes is their ability to swap between different weapon types with the held use of some PAs.
Switchfire Gambit and Edgeracer Gambit will switch to Sword, Bulletblitz and Fallback Gambit will switch to TMGs, and Trickflash and Sleightshot Gambit will switch to Talis.
When these PAs are performed, the weapons are prioritized by "palette ascending order", and if more than one weapon type of the same category is set, the weapon with the closet number from the current palette number will be changed.
The starting point of the ascending order is the number of the weapon palette you have set. If the palette number is 3, the order is 3 -> 4 -> 5 -> 6 -> 1 -> 2.
Palettes that are not set are ignored. For example, if you only have 4 weapons set (1, 3, 4, 6), the loop is 1 -> 3 -> 4 -> 6.

  • Example
    Palette 1: Sword
    Palette 2: Talis
    Palette 3: Sword
    Palette 4: Sword
    Palette 5: Talis
    Palette 6: Gunblade
  • On the above palette, change from Talis on palette 2 to Sword on Edgeracer Gambit -> Move to palette 3
  • On the above palette, change from Talis on palette 5 to Sword on Edgeracer Gambit -> Move to palette 3
  • On the above palette, attempting to change to TMGs with Bulletblitz or Fallback Gambit -> Due to no TMGs equipped, the PA will behave as a single press and equipment will not change over.
  • On the above palette, Swords are lined up on palettes 3 and 4, so the Sword on palette 3 takes priority in the weapon change PA over palette 4. You can equip them as you normally would.
