What Does the Yellow Exclamation Point Mean in Fire Emblem Engage

Fire Emblem Engage has arrived, reminding us why this series is one of the best in its genre. Tactical JRPG combat in Fire Emblem seems easy to get into, but very difficult to master. Knowing the basic rock-paper-scissor mechanics related to the weapon types in the game is just the beginning (Sword beats Axe, Axe beats Lance, and Lance beats Sword.), as there are a lot of additional systems you need to explore to become more effective in these strategic battles. Although not always explained in detail in the game, a couple of icons can appear above opponents, such as the Yellow Exclamation Point. So, what does it mean? Let’s find out.

What Does the Yellow Exclamation Point Mean in Fire Emblem Engage?

When you see a Yellow Exclamation Mark above an enemy unit, it means that it has a Killer Weapon equipped, and you should pay attention. Why, you ask? Well, because a Killer Weapon-wielding enemy unit can Crit your units very hard, since it adds 30% Crit damage usually. This means if you attack the enemy with a Yellow Exclamation point, its counterattack could easily one-shot your unit – that’s why there is a warning.

So, how do you deal with the opponents with these Killer Weapon signs? The safest thing to do is to attack them with a strong damage-dealing character that you are sure can eliminate them in one turn, or at least cause a Break to prevent a counterattack.

That would be all about Yellow Exclamation Marks in Fire Emblem Engage, now you know – and knowing is half the battle!
