If explained in Genshin Impact or Honkai Star Rail terms, W-Engines are equivalent to weapons or light cones in ZZZ. Every W-Engine increases the wearer’s Base Attack and comes with a unique advanced stat and a unique W-Engine effect. Also, every Agent only has one W-Engine equipment slot.

The W-Engines are of 4 types, one for each category of Agents. Here are all the W-Engine types in the game:

  • Impact W-Engines
  • Attack W-Engines
  • Anomaly W-Engines
  • Support W-Engines

Every W-Engine category can only be used by characters in the same category. For example, an impact Agent like Von Lycaon can only equip Impact W-Engines.
