EquipmentShinjiro's weapon of choice is an axe. A heavy axe, to be exact. Axes fall under the bludgeon class of weapons, which inflict strike damage. They are powerful in regards to attack power, but lack accuracy. Therefore, although Shinjiro is capable of hitting hard, he has a higher chance of missing opponents compared to others with different weapon choices. In addition to his default axe, he is able to use a series of other heavy weapons that are obtainable through Elizabeth/Theo requests, chests in Tartarus or simply by purchasing them. The weapons listed below are those the player can obtain while Shinjiro is in the party in Persona 3 Portable. They are listed from lowest to highest attack power.
