What Is The Puppet Ripper In Lies of P

The Pupper Ripper in Lies of P is a scythe-shaped special weapon classified as a sword item obtained after killing the King of Puppets and trading its Burnt-White King’s Ergo.

The Puppet Ripper is by far one of the best weapons you can obtain in Lies of P, on par with weapons like Holy Sword of the Ark and the Golden Lie. A particularly unique characteristic that I experienced with the Ripper is even though it is a dexterity-based weapon, it is one of the slowest ones in its class. However, it makes up for that with its impeccable range and damage.

Some additional features of the Puppet Ripper at level 1 are listed as follows:

  • The Puppet Ripper has a weight value of 16.4.
  • It has an average Physical Attack value of 132.
  • The Fable Arts charge value is 528, with a 51.7% chance to reduce damage when blocking.
  • The Puppet Ripper can not be disassembled for parts.
  • It is classified as a Boss Weapon and cannot be obtained any other way.
  • To upgrade the Puppet Ripper, you need to farm Ergo and the Dark Moon Moonstone of the Covenant.

How To Get The Puppet Ripper

To obtain the Puppet Ripper, you need to defeat the King of Puppets and obtain the Burnt-White King’s Ergo, which you will have to trade with Alidoro.

The King of Puppets is one of the most challenging bosses in Lies of P, so you must tackle him carefully. He can be found at the end of Chapter 6 near the Estella Opera House Stage Stargazer. It is important to note that he has two phases, with the second phase being one of the most challenging fights you can engage in your entire playthrough.

After you defeat the King of Puppets, he will drop a Burnt-White King’s Ergo. You will have to hold on to this item until you can find an NPC named Alidoro. Alidoro’s known locations are either at Hotel Krat or near the Barren Swamp Entrance (Chapter 8.)

Best Way To Use Puppet Ripper

The Puppet Ripper is a dexterity-based weapon definitely, but its playstyle varies immensely from some of the other dexterity-based weapons in Lies of P. Everything from its range, Fable Arts, and overall attack style is one of the best regarding Damage Per Second (DPS) and mobility.

The best utility that the Puppet Ripper has is the long-range whip. It is a heavy or charged attack that covers a lot of distance and allows you to deal a lot of damage from a safe distance.

Puppet Ripper Fable Arts

  • The two Fable Arts with the Puppet Ripper are the Quick Upward Slash and the Storm Spinning Slash. The Quick Upward Slash allows you to deal a lot of damage in an upward motion as a close-quarter maneuver.
  • Additionally, it can also potentially stagger the opponent, allowing for a lot of fun combos. The Storm Spinning Slash is a more potent charged attack that deals a bit more damage from afar using the whip.

My Thoughts

In my experience, the Puppet Ripper is the best weapon in Lies of P. It just boosts all the fun features of a Dexterity-based playstyle. It gives a lot of safety and a fair bit of flair with its technique while doing a strength weapon’s damage. Additionally, the long-range whip makes boss fights so easy that I almost speed run to get the Puppet Ripper each time I start a new game.
