Like Ifrit before it, Beowulf focuses on close range but powerful hits. It boosts the wielder's attack and speed for close combat, and is able to use chargeable light-base attacks using techniques "blessed with the sacred light". Each of its attacks can be charge for greater damage, but at the cost of speed. Because of this, charging Beowulf is not recommended for fast moving opponents. Beowulf also does not have terrific area attacks, making it a poor choice for dealing with large groups of enemies. However, the pure strength of this weapon makes it one of the best to use against single opponents.
Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two WorldsEdit
Dante uses the Beowulf in Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds. The skills packed with it are Killer Bee, The Hammer, and Volcano, along with a new ability called Beehive (which is actually a named version of his Beowulf Combo II from the original DMC3), where Dante kicks rapidly with his greaves then heel smashes the ground and thus acts as a followup to Volcano.
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3Edit
The updated re-released game to Marvel vs. Capcom 3 features the inclusion of Vergil to the roster of playable characters. He comes equipped with Beowulf, and can use several of its attacks: Starfall, Lunar Phase, and Rising Sun.
- Beowulf is one of the few weapons which had more than one wielder. Others are Sparda, Yamato, Kalina Ann, Rebellion and Ebony.
- Most of the Beowulf's moves are allusions to those found in Street Fighter and some of SNK's fighters.
