Exagryph, the Adamant Rail, is an Infernal Arm that can be unlocked for 8 Skeleton Keys after all other weapons have been unlocked. It is a ranged weapon modeled after a repeating rifle.

Codex entry[edit | edit source]

Codex.png '...Least known among the gods who stood together to depose the Titans is the Lady Hestia, reclusive goddess of the hearth, and one-time wielder of Exagryph, the Rail of Adamant; an artifact of metal and of flame so dreadful that the gods themselves abandoned it once their fell work was done. The Rail has a form and function to befit one's nightmares -- while other weapons of the gods inspired mortal counterparts, I am relieved to say the Rail's cruel design has not yet been discovered in a stroke of mortal inspiration, to conduct their wars. Let us pray for their sake that it never shall. For now, its secrets remain trapped within the darkest regions of the Underworld, along with the remains of the Titans defeated by it. Someday, however, I imagine it shall break free from this place; for any weapon once possessed by Eris, Lady Strife herself, becomes possessed of an eternal hunger to destroy. But I am not the sort to moralize or speculate. Indeed, I wish to have no part of it, at all.'

Statistics[edit | edit source]

The Adamant Rail's primary attack fires bullets rapidly out of an ammo cache in the direction Zagreus is looking. These bullets do not stagger enemies or cause them to flinch, and they deal low damage. Zagreus is immobile while firing.

When the Rail is out of ammo, it must be reloaded. It will reload automatically when out of ammo, or a manual reload can be triggered with the "Reload" action.

The Rail's special attack is "Bombard". Using it targets an area around the cursor and launches a large grenade at it. After a brief delay, the grenade will hit the targeted area, dealing massive damage to enemies within the blast zone.

Attack Description Damage Effects
Fire Hold Attack button to Fire (or press rapidly). 10 Damage None
Reload Press Right Stick/R to Reload. None None
Bombard Hold Special to Bombard. 60 Damage Area of Effect

Aspects[edit | edit source]

The Adamant Rail has 3 Aspects: Zagreus, Eris, and Hestia. Like all other weapons, each Aspect has 5 levels that can be unlocked by spending Chthonic Keys. An Aspect will not only change the appearance of the Adamant Rail, but will also improve its attacks. The higher the level of the Aspect, the more effective its improvement is.
