Dual Swords are Weapons in Nioh 2. This weapon works in conjunction with the Dual Sword Skills skill tree, and usually has good scaling with the Skill stat. It also scales with Heart and Strength as well. This page covers a full list of Dual Swords in Nioh 2 and information about their stats.
This weapon is versatile and easy to use, with an emphasis on getting up close to enemies. It lacks range (especially if you want to hit with both swords for max damage) but you have several tools to close the distance, such as Mortal Flow and Sign of the Cross. Compared to the Tonfa and Fists, this has the most easy access to melee damage out of all of them, the best range, the best off-hand weapon option in Sign of the Cross II and arguably better defensive options than the fists.
It, however, lacks in Ki damage on hit, heavy punishes against blocking enemies, status accumulation and building Anima, though Wooden Dual Swords are an option for more Ki damage at the expense of melee damage if you think it's necessary. Dual Swords can work with any other weapon and don't care much about armor type.
Below is a list of Dual Swords in Nioh 2, and each Dual Sword has an effect that will ALWAYS be present, no matter what other random bonuses there may be. These effects are listed in the "effect" column. Damage values are not listed since these change by rarity and level, making it difficult to compare them easily. Break and Block are listed, since these do not change with rarity or level.
Every Weapon in the game has Familiarity. The better quality of the weapon, the more Familiarity can be obtained with the weapon, and over time the damage and bonuses of the weapon will improve as the Familiarity increases up to a maximum. This way, using the same weapon over time can yield higher damage than another, even if it's lower level.
