Nioh and Nioh 2 (including all DLCs) are also bundled in the Nioh Collection on PS5.
A lot of the Skills in Nioh are categorized under a specific weapon type, in addition to Ninjutsu and Onmyo Magic Skills. Though it might seem that you are only limited to benefiting from Passive Skills of the weapons you mainly use, their effects will still trigger even if you’re not using the required weapon. This means that you can benefit from the Passive Skills of any Weapon Skill Tree despite not using it as your main weapon.
