Engage has the familiar grid-based tactical roleplaying gameplay the series is known for. However, this entry ditches the weapon durability system seen in previous games and instead goes back to the old battle triangle system that works like a sort of rock, paper, scissor system.

In Fire Emblem Engage, the previously mentioned weapon triangle system has a new addition: body arts. The body arts weapon type has an advantage over daggers, bows and tomes.



Smash is a mechanic that allows characters with heavy weapons to knock an enemy back a space.

The attack does even more damage  if there is an enemy or a wall in the space they are knocked into.

Reclassing & Weapon Proficiency

Within the game, there are two level classes, Base and Advanced, both with a level cap of 20. To advance from Base to Advanced, you must get to the level cap.

However, you can upgrade a Base character into Advanced from level 10 with a Master Seal. There is also a weapon proficiency mechanic, which is tied to the level classes.

As mentioned previously, weapon proficiency is tied to the associated ring.
