Wispon

From Sonic Retro

A bird Avatar wielding a Drill Wispon.

Wispons (ウィスポン Wisupon) are weapons that are wielded by the Resistance's soldiers in Sonic Forces. These weapons are designed to harness the Wisps' Hyper-Go-On energy to channel the properties of their Color Powers without inducing transformations on the user.

In gameplay, Wispons are used by the Avatar as a means of attacking and movement. Each Wispon has two functions:

  • Basic Attack: A basic long-ranged attack that can take out multiple foes at once. The nature of the attack depends of the variety of the chosen Wispon.
  • Special Action: A special limited-use ability reminiscent of a Color Power that gives the player special movement capabilities such as multiple mid-air jumps. To be able to use a special action, the player must obtain a Wisp that matches their Wispon (like a Red Wisp for the Burst Wispon); obtaining any other Wisp will have no effect. The player can use the special action as much as they like until the Wisp Gauge fully depletes.

Besides its primary functions, Wispons can also come with different sets of skills that are automatically activated when the Wispon is wielded by the Avatar. The Wispon the Avatar possesses is displayed on the HUD in the lower left corner of the screen along with any active skills attached to it.

The player starts out with a skill-less Burst Wispon at the beginning of the game, but by clearing Challenge Missions and unlocking gold Medals, one can unlock new Wispons. Each of the seven varieties of Wispon comes in nine different models, each one with its own unique set of skills, adding up to a total of 63 Wispons in the game.
