Mimetic Edge Information

“Sculpted from an unknown alloy of high-stress metals by the ever-evolving cognition at the heart of the Nucleus. Functioning nanites are embedded throughout the blade, constantly honing its cutting edge and adjusting its weight distribution to fit the movements of its wielder. The Mimetic Edge is a killing tool with singular purpose, sometimes even anticipating the next strike before it is performed…”


Mimetic Edge Details



Mimetic Edge Location/ Where to find

  • Mimetic Edge can be obtained after defeating the boss Rogue Process.
  • Mimetic Edge can be obtained by various enemies in NG+.
  • If you get Mimetic Edge from a Patchwork Zombie in NG+, it will be Mk 0.
  • To obtain the Mimetic Edge, you must either sever the head or destroy the torso during phase 2 of the Rogue Process boss battle.
  • Considering that the Mimetic Edge is available as a non-boss drop in NG+, you might want to go for the Claws of the Gestalt, and use Ops to reset the equipment on a Patchwork Zombie until it spawns with the Mimetic Edge instead.

Mimetic Edge Notes & Tips

  • Sever right arm to obtain the updated Mimetic Edge, called Claws of the Gestalt, which has a bit lower damage than this edge and has some of the twin-rigged movesets.
  • Unlike its icon, the actual weapon is a dark black blade with veins of red energy.

      I got this game off PlayStation Store for PS4 and I'm on NG+now, I'm a t Central Production B and I just encountered a Patchwork Zombie on the first bridge I cross after Ops. He has an Equalizer and I can figure out how to reset his weapon, please help.

        It can also be dropped on the first mob in the elevator after defeating Black Cerberus on NG+ (I just got mine just now while playing)

          Added some info to the page :p
          The 'sword' dropped from the Rogue Process boss on my first playthrough. It was "Purple" (or Nano-upgraded, MK. V) level right away.
          Already upgraded it further during my NG+, otherwise I'd throw in the base stats. :(
