Lies Of P: 10 BEST Weapon Combinations [Hands-On Guide]

The weapon combination mechanic is interesting in Lies of P as it allows you to create a strong and bizarre combo of weapons.

The best weapon combination in Lies of P allows you to create the perfect combo of weapons that can trivialize a boss’s weakness. This mechanic of fusing blades with a different weapon handle is something refreshing in the Soulslike genre and allows for great weapon variety.

Key Takeaways
  • There are 25+ possible weapon combinations that you can make in the game by combining different weapon blades with weapon handles.
  • The advantage of weapon combinations is that you can bring variety into movesets, scaling, and special attacks, allowing them to create an almost perfect weapon.
  • The disadvantage is that you cannot use special weapons if they depend on combinations, and special or boss weapons tend to be better than the normal weapon combos.
  • In my experience, the strength weapon combos and the acid weapons combinations tend to perform the best.
Important: A weapon combo consists of a different weapon blade and a handle, which creates variation in moveset in fable arts.

An exceptional combination of speed and damage is the Bone Cutting Sawblade combined with the Bramble Curved Sword Handle. Even though this combination might not be as powerful as the one with the Greatsword of Fate Blade, it still packs a punch. The fable art of the Bramble Curved Sword Handle is also exceptionally good.

The fable art is known as the Furious Slash, which basically allows you to kill an enemy with many slashes. If you continue to use the fable art, a finisher attack can also be initiated. While getting the faster and quicker moveset for a greatsword is the key to the combo, the amazing fable art is the cherry on top.

  • The Bone Cutting Sawblade can be found inside a chest on one of the rooftops in the Malum District.
  • You can purchase the Bramble Curved Sword from the Black Market Trader in the Malum District.
  • Significantly increases the speed of the weapon.
  • Lets you deliver heavy blows at a steady speed.
  • The handles have lower scalings than the original.
  • Reduces the base dmg of the weapon.

2. Big Pipe Wrench Head + Booster Glaive Handle

  • Why I Chose This: This combination would let you utilize the Wrench’s destructive power to its finest as it increases the overall dmg and range of the weapon.

Losing health by blocking attacks can be recovered in Lies of P, and that mechanic can be capitalized upon by using the Big Pipe Wrench Head Blade with the Booster Glaive Handle. Not only does the Booster Glaive handle increase the swiftness of the Big Pipe Wrench Head, but it also gives it an exceptional boost to damage.

The Big Pipe Wrench Head was already a deadly blunt weapon on its own, but with this new handle, you’ll be dealing massive damage and recovering much of your health. The playstyle that I suggest to use with the Wrench Head and Glaive Handle is to block incoming attacks and recover your health by dealing damage.

  • The Big Pipe Wrench Head can be found inside a chest near the Vengini Works area.
  • After stopping the flow of corruption, the Booster Glaive can be looted from a chest near the Workshop Union Entrance Stargazer.
  • Increases the range and dmg of the weapon.
  • Increases the guard potency and the handle has a great Fable Art.
  • The scaling for Motivity is greatly reduced.
  • The handles are obtained after defeating a boss.

3. Live Puppet’s Axe Blade + Coil Mjolnir Handle

The Best Combo For Increased Range.

  • Why I Chose This: This combo boosts the dmg of Puppet’s Axe significantly with more range, higher scalings and a better defensive Fable Art.
Show Full Text

In my opinion, if you’re looking for a pure strength weapon, then there is nothing better than this combo in the game. The Coil Mjolnir Handle not only increases the range of the Live Puppet’s Axe Blade but also scales well with the blade, increasing the damage overall. The overall Motivity scaling is also really good for a strength weapon.

You need to make your hits count since you’ll need to charge your attacks for maximum damage. However, the fable arts in the following combination will help you land a few deadly hits on the bosses and enemies.

  • The Live Puppet’s Axe can be looted from a chest on top of a tower in the Barren Swamp area.
  • As for the Coil Mjolnir, you can find it in the chest located in the Krat Central Station Plaza.
  • Significantly improves the weapons dmg and range.
  • Has the same scalings but with lower weight.
  • Both the equipement are located in two different areas.
  • The handles’ Fable Art is only for defense.

4. Salamander Dagger Blade + Acidic Crystal Spear Handle

  • Why I Chose This: This combination greatly increases the range and burn capability of Salamder Dagger and further boosts the Advance scaling of the weapon.
Show Full Text

The Salamander Dagger is already an exceptional elemental weapon in the game, but it falls short due to its low range and moveset. That problem can be easily overcome by combining it with the Acidic Crystal Spear Handle, which not only increases the range but also improves the damage on the dagger. Basically, this combo will make for a perfect elemental weapon in Lies of P.

With a longer reach and poking attacks, you can deal with enemies weak to fire from range. Additionally, you can even combine the fable attacks of the blade and the handle to initiate a powerful fire attack.

  • Workshop Union Entrance is where you’ll need to get the Salamander Dagger Blade.
  • The Acidic Crystal Spear is present in a chest located near the Stargazer of the Path of the Pilgrim area.
  • Singnificantly increases the range of Salamander Dagger.
  • The moveset of the handle allows the dagger to burn enemies frequently.
  • The Technique scaling is reduced in this combo.
  • Increases the overall weight of the weapon.

5. Big Pipe Wrench Head + Exploding Pickaxe Handle

The Best Combo For Str Builds.

  • Why I Chose This: This combo provides great utility in pure Str builds as it boosts the range and overall dmg of the Wrench along with high scalings.

Next I have another great combination for strength enjoyers, as it capitalizes on the Motivity stat and improves scaling for it. Keep in mind that the Big Pipe Wrench Head paired with the Exploding Pickaxe Handle will increase the blade’s overall range and damage.

However, the build will center around blocking attacks and dealing counterattacks after a block. You’ll have to play like a tank, and the build is really helpful for those who have trouble doing perfect dodges.

  • The Big Pipe Wrench Head is inside a chest near the Vengini Works area.
  • As for the Exploding Pickaxe, that weapon can be found in the Estella Opera House.
  • The handles have a Fable Art to reduce stamina consumption.
  • Boosts Motivity scalings, further increasing the dmg output.
  • The scalings are the same on the original handles.
  • The handles are acquired later than the weapon.

6. Acidic Crystal Spear Blade + Big Pipe Wrench Handle

  • Why I Chose This: This combination provides a great dmg increase for Acidic Crystal Spear by giving it a longer reach and enhanced scalings.
Show Full Text

Most of the endgame bosses are extremely weak to the acid damage, making the Acidic Crystal Spear Blade a good choice for late game. Pair this blade with the Big Pipe Wrench Handle, which, in my experience, increased the range and made the weapon more versatile.

You’d become a menace for these end-game bosses with the acid damage at your disposal, even from a longer range. The fable arts you get in the combination are also really good, further empowering these acid-damage attacks.

  • The Acidic Crystal Spear can be found in a chest near the Stargazer of the Path of the Pilgrim area.
  • The Big Pipe Wrench Head is inside a chest near the Vengini Works area.
  • The handles increase the dmg of Crystal Spear.
  • Increases the range and scalings of the weapon.
  • Using these handles ends the Advance scaling.
  • The moveset becomes slower and increases the weight of the weapon.

7. Acidic Great Curved Sword Blade + Dancer Curved Sword Handle

The Best Combo For Decay Builds.

  • Why I Chose This: This combo lets you use acidic attacks more swiftly and also increases the overall dmg output of the Acidic Curved Sword.

Another great acid weapon that can basically trivialize endgame is the Acidic Great Curved Sword. Aside from the acid damage, there is not much that the weapon itself offers on its own. The same can be said for the Dancer Curved Sword, and it doesn’t even offer acidic attacks. But combining the two weapons results in one of the best weapon combos, which makes endgame easier in Lies of P.

The fable arts of each are also not that good on their own, but in combination, these become pretty useful to inflict acid damage and increase your overall attack power.

  • You can find the Acidic Great Curved Sword in a chest located near the Arche Abbey Outer Wall Stargazer.
  • The Dancer Curved Sword is also present inside a chest near the Rosa Isabelle Street Entrance Stargazer.
  • Makes the moveset of the greatsword more swift.
  • Provides high Technique scaling to the weapon.
  • Reduces the range of the weapon.
  • The greatsword is acquired in the last area.

8. Greatsword Of Fate Blade + Salamander Dagger Handle

  • Why I Chose This: This combo would let you utilize the dmg of a greatsword at high speed as it changes the greatsword moveset into a dagger one, increasing the dmg output.
Show Full Text

This is probably another great combination of fast but heavy-hitting attacks, giving a greatsword a fast and efficient moveset. Light attacks will turn into thrusting pokes, which I consider extremely useful when paired with the range you get using the greatsword blade. Additionally, your heavy attacks will turn into quick slashes instead of time taking great sword attacks.

When given the moveset of a dagger, a greatsword can become really deadly. And when one of the best great swords is paired with a compatible and powerful handle like the Salamander Dagger Handle, you’ll have a much easier time throughout the game.

  • Greatsword of Fate can be chosen as a starting strength weapon, or you can also purchase it later from the Wandering Merchant.
  • The Salamander Dagger is located in the Workshop Union Entrance area.
  • Greatly increases the speed of the greatsword.
  • The Fable Art lets you strike while also evading incoming attacks.
  • Significantly reduces the Motivity scaling.
  • The handles reduce the overall range due to their small size.

9. Electric Coil Stick Head + Krat Police Baton Handle

The Best Combo For Electric Blitz Builds.

  • Why I Chose This: This combination helps to clear puppets easily due to the lightning dmg as it increases the dmg potential of the weapon as well as lightning application.
Show Full Text

Most Puppet enemies are weak to electrical damage, and there is no better weapon than the Electrical Coil Stick for just that purpose. It is also obtained quite early; the same can be said for the Krat Police Baton. Now combine the Electric Coil Stick Head with the Police Baton Handle, and you’ll have a Puppet destroying machine at your disposal.

The fable art that you get with the Police Baton Handle in Lies of P will also empower your electric attacks, which is a welcome bonus. Aside from the fable arts, the new moveset you get with this handle is much more useful than the default attacks of the Electric Coil Stick.

  • You can purchase the Electric Coil Stick from the Wandering Merchant when you arrive at the Stargazer inside a house on Elysion Boulevard.
  • The Krat Police Baton can be obtained by killing a Krat Police Puppet enemy near the location mentioned above.
  • Greatly Increases the scalings of the weapon.
  • The Fable Arts  greatly enhance the shock application.
  • This handle does not provide any Advance scaling like the original.
  • The range of the weapon is reduced by these handles.

10. Puppet’s Saber Blade + Fire Axe Handle

The Best Combo For Early-Game.

  • Why I Chose This: This combo boosts the viability of the starting Saber blade by greatly increasing its dmg and rage and also provides a versatile moveset.
Show Full Text

In my opinion, this combination is probably one of the best ones during the early game of Lies of P, as the combo gives an overall balanced weapon. The Fire Axe Handle will increase the sword’s range and make its moveset more versatile than its boring default attacks. The fable arts are also really good in combination, as they allow you to tank boss attacks and initiate a quick counterattack.

  • You can actually get the Saber Balde as your starting weapon, but it can also be purchased from the Wandering Merchant later.
  • The Fire Axe can be found inside a chest located in the tunnels of the Workshop Union Culvert.
  • Increases the range and scalings of the weapon.
  • Also alters the moveset of the sword, boosting combat capabilities.
  • The handles’ Fable Art only provides defensive options.
  • Increases the weight of the weapon.

My Thoughts

In my experience, the weapons combinations which are optimized for strength builds can be used to defeat bosses easily. You can tank hits by blocking attacks and deal a massive chunk of damage by counterattacking, all the while getting your health back. Aside from these strength weapons, the acidic weapon combinations also helped me defeat some endgame bosses that were weak to acid. The Electric Coil Stick combo made the early game a breeze, mostly of Puppets.

  • I would like to add that the boss or special weapons are superior to these weapon combinations.
  • These special cannot be combined with other weapons, but the stats, scaling, and fable arts on these weapons are much superior to the normal weapon combos.
  • So, I would suggest switching to special weapons when you get the chance.
