Nioh 2 Armor Set Bonuses Guide

Nioh 2 Armor Set Bonuses Guide
There’s a good selection of armor sets in Nioh 2 that provide set bonuses. This Nioh 2 Armor Set Bonuses Guide lists all of the different set bonuses we’ve encounter in the game so far including details on what stats the bonus benefits most.

As we continue through the game we’ll update the guide with more sets and more bonuses, and hopefully additional details on where each set can be found. To begin with, this guide is mostly just about listing the different armor set bonuses available so you can find one that most suits your personal play style and hunt it down. Usually checking mission rewards and Blacksmith options is where you find most of the sets in the game.

Armor Sets are special collections of armor that provide additional bonuses when worn as a complete set or in groups of pairs, different sets offer bonuses with different parts equipped. When you highlight a piece of armor, if it belongs to a set, it will have the sets name in the description along with the armors other beneficial effects. You press L2 while inspecting a piece of set armor to further check the armor stats, providing additional information on the perks and benefits of equipping the full set of armor.
