Samurai Maiden’s combat excels after earning tons of new upgrades and abilities from Tsumugi’s companions. In order to unlock Tsumugi’s combat potential in Samurai Maiden, players must increase their Affection Level with Iyo, Hagane, and Komimi. Certain weapons must be upgraded to obtain even more Affection and Inga from defeated enemies. Fortunately, the required weapons are available from the start, and this guide sheds light on getting the best out of Affection levels and weapons within Samurai Maiden.
Iyo’s Flaming Kunai
In order to obtain more Affection and Inga with Iyo, her Flaming Kunai weapon should be enhanced to level 3. Leveling the weapon up to level 3 unlocks the Bond of Affection and Inga Bringer skills, which increased the amount of Affection and Inga gained. The increase comes in handy for unlocking Album events and upgrading subsequent weapons.
Hagane’s Electric Tekko
Hagane’s Electric Tekko weapon should be enhanced to level 3 to earn more Affection and Inga with the character. Leveling the weapon up to level 3 unlocks the Bond of Affection and Inga Bringer skills.
Komimi’s Snow Hammer
The Snow Hammer weapon should be enhanced to level 3 to gain additional Affection and Inga with Komimi. Once more, enhancement level 3 unlocks the Bond of Affection and Inga Bringer skills as described with Iyo and Hagane.
These upgrades are critical toward reaching Affection Level 100 and enhancing Tsumugi’s weapons to max level 30. At the same time, players will unlock Album events and gain Tsumugi’s best abilities in Samurai Maiden.
With these valuable upgrades, players should amass a ton of Inga and reach max Affection with Iyo, Hagane, and Komimi. Moreover, the harder difficulties should prove less of a challenge with newly-upgraded and powerful weapons obtained near the end of the first playthrough.
Samurai Maiden is available now for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam.
