Tips using Papin
- Use when it has fully-recharged to deal maximum damage.
- Equip Papin and wait for it recharges.
- Primary attack also does quite high damage.
Papin can undergo Premium Enhancement where its damage and knockback power can be enhanced up two three stages each. After all the six enhancements have been applied, Papin will have a texture change and it can knock away heavy-type zombies far away.
- The Papin name is taken from Denis Papin, a French physicist, mathematician and inventor, best known for his pioneering invention of the steam digester, the forerunner of the steam engine, and of the pressure cooker.
- This is the fifth dual-wielded melee after Dragon Tail, Dual Nata Knives, Dual Wakizashi and BALROG-IX.
- This is the second pair of gauntlets after BALROG-IX, making it also the second melee weapon that does involve the user's fists instead of just the blade-made weapon itself.
- This is the fourth weapon that is equipped with an air meter after Gae Bolg, Aeolis and Petrol Boomer.
- The words "STEAM PUNCH" can be seen printed on each gauntlet.
- This is first melee weapon has accuracy enhancement rather than rate of fire.
