The Umbran Armor is a new type of weapon featured in Bayonetta 2. It is a heavy duty, vehicular type of transport that is apparently modeled by the Umbra Witches for use during the Witch Hunts against the angelic forces.
The Umbran Armor can only be played normally during Chapter XIV of the game where both Bayonetta and Rosa use them to defeat an oncoming attack from angelic forces in Vigrid. Outside of this, equipping the Earrings of Ruin accessory will summon the Armor for use during Umbran Climax. The Umbran Armor by default is what Rosa uses for her Umbran Climax.
The Armor controls similarly to Bayonetta herself, but does not use combos like she does. Instead, the Umbran Armor has a three-hit combo for punches, and a two-hit combo for kicks. Attacks cannot be chained together, and Dodge Offset cannot be utilized.
The charge modifier for the Umbran Armor will make use of the guns that it possesses on each limb. On the arms, two machine guns are used for rapid fire and the two guns on the feet are similar to a shotgun for more powerful, short-range blasts. Some of the attacks these guns posess can bring even extremely powerful foes such as Aesir to their knees.
Jumping middair and pressing the punch button will unleash a slam attack, this move is the most powerful attack of the Armor, has considerable range with more damage if enemies are closer when the attack hits and will knockback enemies if they are close enough.
When powered up into Umbran Climax, the Armor's attacks only grow stronger and can rack up huge amounts of combo points with minimal effort.
The best way to kill enemies is using hold PPP press the punch button and hold it until the armor stops then use this a second time and the last time it deals more damage.
- Based on the way Bayonetta pilots the mech armor and its features, it can be assumed the armor is based off the structure of a motorcycle. It is shown to have wheels on the joints of the arms and feet, exhaust mufflers and forward leaning seat. The red light on the mech's front also looks similar to the light on front of a motorcycle as well Bayonetta's Umbran Watch. She can also humorously use her middle finger as a "key", similair to the motorcycle she rides in the first Bayonetta.
- The Umbran Armor gives homage to the Ride Armors from the Mega Man X series, and the Magitech Armors from Final Fantasy VI. In turn they're a larger homage to the various mechs and piloted robots from earlier series such as Gundam.
