In Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce, movesets are no longer restricted by character like in the previous titles. Instead, each one is affiliated with a particular type of weaponry. The game's weapon switch function enables characters to use any available moveset by means of a sub-weapon other than their own. Although the player can only equip two at a time, they can hold a large amount of various armaments in their inventory which can also be shared by any character in the roster. Note that switching weapons from the inventory is only possible before battle. Therefore, assessing the situation and difficulty of any upcoming mission is essential.

Despite the amount of freedom provided by the new switching system, not every character can use the same weapon moveset efficiently due to the differences in preference and proficiency for each one. A character using a weapon outside their field of expertise may not be able to fight well compared to one wielding a weapon of their preferred type. Nonetheless, this may be ignored if the strongest opponent they face is weak against a particular kind of weapon. The second game further divides certain weapons into different sub-types based on their innate movesets.

The sequences of each moveset from Dynasty Warriors 6 have been revamped to accommodate the quick-paced combat feature implemented in Strikeforce. Deadlock moves and grapples are removed entirely in favor of including air attacks and dash charges. Also added are attacks that increase in strength by charging up the power attack button momentarily. Undergoing fury form may enable players to harness a weapon's full moveset regardless of their character's overall proficiency. It also adds special effects such as additional shockwaves, extra range, etc. Unlike in previous titles, every single attack of each moveset (including the regular attack string) is influenced by the element of the user's weapon. Thus, players are capable of not only mixing up weapon combinations but also elemental properties.

Weapons are normally purchased in town by gathering the required materials from battles and handing them over to the local blacksmith. Any kind of weaponry can be bought by the player so long as the character who mainly uses it has already been unlocked in the roster. They can also be enhanced with different bonuses and attributes (via orbs in Strikeforce or attachments in Multi Raid 2).
