I want to know the strongest weapon is in Kid Icarus: Uprising. My guess would have to be either the Midnight Palm, the Cutter Palm, the Ninja Palm, the Samurai Blade or the Ogre Club.

There is no one strongest weapon. Different weapons are stronger in certain aspects though.

I've been working on recording statistics for each weapon in the game on Icaruspedia. (The fusion guide is complete too if you're interested in that.)

Here are some of the highlights:

  • The Ogre Club has the highest melee damage
  • The Magnus Club has the second highest melee damage, but also has the shortest range of any weapon.
  • The Flintlock Staff has the highest damage at a long distance, but the weakest melee damage. It also has the fastest projectiles.
  • The Earthmaul Club has the longest range in the game, followed by the Laser Staff.
  • Claws typically have the highest rate of fire, but certain blades and palms also have rapid fire.
  • Cannons' charged shots can often hit multiple foes, making their total damage higher than single-target weapons with higher damage.

Statistically, clubs do the most damage without modifiers. HOWEVER, almost any weapon can be stronger than Clubs if it has the right modifiers.

The "strongest" weapon depends largely on your play style. My favorite is my Palutena Bow, due to speed and range. However, if you prefer to move quickly, Claws are the way to go (I said fists before the edit because the Brawler Claws provide the highest move speed without any modifiers, and they're basically fists), and by fusing to them with weapons with higher damage output modifiers, you increase the damage output of the Claws through the passing of the modifiers.

The Magnus Club is not the strongest at long ranged or melee damage. Fists aren't a weapon type (although I'm guessing you mean Claws). You can't modify the inherent attributes of a weapon through fusion, only modifiers and damage rating. Also you can never fuse a weapon to that same type of weapon in a single fusion. –  Brian Apr 26 '13 at 3:06
    
I never said that you could modify the inherent attributes. The Magnus Club does have the most potential for melee as far as I am aware, AND I never said that it would take a single fusion. I meant to say that it would take a while, but it really isn't necessary as a simple Google search would have given the fusion mechanics. –  WingManEXE Apr 26 '13 at 3:10
    
Oh ok, it sounded like that was what you were saying in the middle paragraph. I recommend editing "Fists" to "Claws" and possibly making what you meant about fusion a little clearer. The site will let me change my vote if it's edited too. –  Brian Apr 26 '13 at 3:52
    
I probably do best with the palms and blades... –  Icarus Nerd Apr 27 '13 at 12:29

The Samurai Blade and the Aurum Palm are the strongest weapons due to the fact that the Samurai Blade has a quick melee combo attack rate.The Aurum Palm has the quickest charge shot which fires a charge shot per sec.

Trust me when I say this: The best weapons in Kid Icarus Uprising is the Samurai Blade and the Lancer Staff. If these weapons are too slow or whatever I suggest the following: Their are six slots for modifiers so I suggest these:

Lancer Staff: Overall Defense+8, Shot Homing+8, Stamina+8, Evasion+8, In-Peril Attack Boost+8, Speed+6

Samurai Blade: Overall Defense+8, Dash Cont Fire+8, Stamina+8, Evasion+8, In-Peril Attack Boost+8, Speed+6

*Note: Although these are hard to get they are the sure key to victory :)

Hello and welcome to Stack Exchange. Thank you for your answer; however, as it currently is the main crux of your answer seems more opinion than actual fact. Please consider editing your answer with a better explanation why those two weapons are superior to everything else in your opinion. Thanks! –  Shadur Oct 12 '13 at 16:19
    
Those are impossible stats. –  Brian Oct 15 '13 at 14:38
