Sword and shield are the weapons that allow you to strike and block some attacks of the monsters. Swords are weapons from which you can strike quickly and swiftly. You can come up close to enemies and hit them with the Twin Blade Combo and Destroyer Oil. Destroyer Oil attack lets you use a wirebug to cover the blade with a special ointment and its effects are triggered when ignited with friction with the shield.
