In Vigil: The Longest Night, there are four weapons that you can choose from and Leila can equip up to three weapons at once. To check your weapons, open the side menu, and select the equipment menu to view or change your weapons. When you are exploring or in the middle of the battle, Leila can swap weapons on the fly by pressing the corresponding button to switch weapons, this allows players to quickly adapt to certain situations to easily dispatch threats.
Each weapon has a fixed special action. By pressing the corresponding button for the special action Leila can:
- Block, Absorb, and Parry attacks with the Sword.
- Axes can be charged up to release a tremendous attack against enemies.
- Launch a critical attack that breaks enemy defenses when Daggers are equipped.
- And switch between unique types of arrows such as flaming or poison arrows if Leila is using the Bow.
Some weapons in the game have special moves, apart from special actions. Special moves for a weapon require the player to follow and press series of buttons to execute the weapon's move. For example, the Owl Claymore has the Leaping Spin move if you press Left, Right + Attack Button. Special moves consume Stamina when it is executed. You'll be able to identify if a weapon has a special move by checking the weapon in the equipment menu and look below the description/weapon stats box.
Weapons can be modified by forging or enchanting. Speak to Zachary at the Smithy in Maye Town for weapon modification. Forging requires Gold and Shimmer Stones to increase the weapon's level. The maximum level for a weapon to be forged is up to +7.

Here are all the weapons I've found after three playthroughs. However, even though I have well more than what's currently listed, I -still- don't have the Weapon Collector achievement. From what I've heard, forging/enchanting may invalidate an item's collected status. This doesn't seem true for -enchanting-, since the only two weapons I have enchanted are Ancient Vigilant Sword and Ceremonial Sword - and I have duplicates which are not enchanted. As for forging, if it's true, it sounds like a pretty big bug given that if you forge your basic Vigilant Sword, your save is screwed and you'll have to do a new playthrough from scratch.
Many items are drops, which are not listed on Demajen's maps - for example, I only found the Axe of Boiling Blood from the loading screen.
Staff of the Holy Six
Axe of the Holy Six
Beast Hunter's Maul
Axe of Boiling Blood
Missing Ceremonial Sword, has +Arcane which scales as you forge it
Missing Northwind, an axe found in the first ship you enter coming from the Wasted Warehouse lantern. After you get in, and manage to lower the wooden cargo dont go up the (broken) stairs, slide under them, and you'll get to an area with some slimes and the axe's chest
spatium axe too
sacrifical sword << This weapon I saw in the loading message. // Does anybody know?
