How to permanently unlock the Weapon Catch skill in Sifu is something that many players are wondering about at the moment now that the Kung Fu action game has finally been released.

Aside from using basic attacks, dodges, blocks and parrying, Sifu invites players to unlock and add new skills to their repertoires to give them some situational advantages.

For those looking to have one of the most crucial skills in their back pocket at all times, especially early on, here's a breakdown of how to permanently unlock the Weapon Catch skill in Sifu.

How to Unlock the Weapon Catch Permanent Skill in Sifu

In Sifu, players earn XP by taking out enemies and advancing through levels, which can ultimately be used to unlock skills in the skill tree.

An interesting twist with Sifu is that the game does feature a roguelike-style persistent progression system in that although all skills are reset once a player's playthrough hits "game over," there is also a way to eventually make all skills a permanent fixture on a loadout.

The way to do this is by buying a skill a total of five times after temporarily unlocking it, plus any time you have to temporarily unlock it in a new run. Although it doesn't have to be done all on a single run, you do have to unlock a skill again before you can start working on its permanent unlock purchases again.

In the case of the Weapon Catch skill, players will need to spend a minimum of 500 XP to temporarily unlock it at least once, and 5x 500 XP (2,500 XP total) to permanently unlock it.

Ultimately, the Weapon Catch skill is one that players should unlock early if possible as it allows you to catch bottles being thrown at you, throw it back at enemies and follow it up with a combo.
