Overview

Unlockable Weapons are customizable weapons that you have to unlock in order to wield. After they are unlocked, you may choose them in your costume options at either Icon or a Facemaker. Currently, there are several ways to unlock the weapons, including but not limited to defeating a certain number of a specific enemy type, earning a badge, completing certain story arcs, purchase with Vanguard Merits, obtaining certain Recipe drops, or purchasing them from Empyrean Michael after completing certain Incarnate Trials.
