Is there any significance to a weapon's weight?
I am currently in the first part of NieR: Replicant for the PS4, and I have obtained a number of one-handed swords. Each sword has its own unique stats, story, length, and weight.
As far as weight goes, there are various stats ranging from very light to heavy. I have seen slight differences in attack range while wielding longer weapons, yet I have not seen any differences when using weapons of different weights. I would have expected this to affect combo speed in battle, or movement speed while traveling the overworld, but this does not seem to the case as far as I can tell.
What is the significance to a weapon's weight, if any at all?
