Swift Hawk is one of the Sword Weapons in Nioh 2. Swift Hawk, like all swords, has a good balance between offense and defense, and is a good choice if you aren't sure what sort of Enemies you will be facing. Swords also scale very well with the Heart stat, so if your Build has high Heart, consider using this Weapon type.
Swift Hawk Description
Known as Hayataka in Japanese, this katana was favoured by the ninja master, Kato Danzo. The unsigned blade possesses great sharpness, but as it is a ninja weapon, it is not designed for locking blades, or engaging enemies in frontal attacks. The bird on pommel are not merely decorative, as they serve as an important tool for illusionists. Enemies distracted by the flapping of the wings will soon find themselves the victims of the shadow arts.
