The Secret World: Auxiliary Weapon – The Whip
The Secret World: Auxiliary Weapon – The Whip

The Whip, you too can live out your wildest fantasies…

(Be it Jones, Belmont, Bedroom or otherwise!)

Coming to The Secret World in patch 1.6 is the coolest and possibly kinkiest weapon in the Auxiliary arsenal, the Whip!

Where To Get It?

The Whip is acquired during mission “The City Beneath Us” / “The City Before Us”  exact details will be provided in those mission guides.

Auxiliary weapons have their own skill wheel, which will require ‘AP‘, and function the same as the normal skill wheel, to unlock new abilities.    It will require 350 AP total to acquire all Whip abilities, as each individual ability will cost 50 AP a piece (So start saving!)

Skill Points

Just like any other weapon, the Whip will require skill points.    A total of  35 SP is required to bring Whip skill to level 10.   (You’ll also have to have a desire to hunt and kill vampires..  more on this later..)

  • Delma

    can’t help but think the corrupted and hell ones look bland and boring, not exactly a fan of the glowy orochi either. Skillwise i love the whip however.

  • orochi skin – is that a jedi whip ? o.O
    corrupted & demonic skin – boring (corrupted have a “+”)
    soviet skin – disappointed (was better just a simple metal chain whit a star not that piece of metal – look bad)

    Hi, there is no hat when you win the whip like for the other aux weapon?

  • vice

    sucks you have to buy a mission pack to get it.
