Valheim Weapons Tier List: The Best Weapons in Valheim

Valheim Weapons Tier List: The Best Weapons in Valheim

Valheim is not your standard survival RPG where you only need to gather resources. You need to fight for yourselves, and there is a range of weapons at your disposal.

The new kid on the block, Valheim, drops you smack in the middle of a foreign land as you try to make a living for yourself. As you progress through the game, various materials and weapons unlock but out of the lot, which are the best weapons in the game? I’ve compiled this spoiler-free tier list of weapons in Valheim as a quick reference of what you should definitely get.

Valheim Weapons Tier List

I’ve divided the weapons in Valheim into four sections. Tier S being the best and godlike, Tier A the top picks, Tier B being pretty good, and Tier C are the ones you should only use as starter weapons when nothing else is available.

Draugr Fang

This bow crafted from ancient bark should be your top pick for a bow. Not only the Draugr is the strongest bow out there, it also has additional poison damage. The materials required to craft the bow are pretty hard to locate, but you should not have to look elsewhere once you have them.

ii. Frostner

Blunt – 35

Frost – 40

Spirit – 20

Block Power – 10

Parry Force – 30

Knockback – 120

ItemMaterials Required

5x Ymir Flesh
5x Freeze Gland
Valheim - Frostner Tutorial

One of the top weapons in Valheim, the Frostner is pretty versatile. It not only deals Frost Damage but inflicts Blunt and Spirit Damage as well. The Frostner can be used against any type of enemie and not only the skeletons.

II. Tier A

i. Black Metal Sword

Slash – 95

Block Power – 10

Parry Force – 20

Parry Bonus – 2

Knockback – 40

Backstab – 3

ItemMaterials Required
Black Metal Sword2x Fine Wood
20x Black Metal
5x Linen Thread

Are you looking for a sword that trumps all the other swords? Look no further than the Black metal sword. With the highest damage per second stat, there’s no replacing this one on the A tier.

ii. Black Metal Atgeir

Pierce – 105

Block Power – 10

Parry Force – 40

Parry Bonus – 3

Knockback – 30

ItemMaterials Required
Black Metal Atgeir10x Fine Wood
30x Black Metal
5x Linen Thread

Black Metal Atgeir

What makes the Black Metal Atgeir worthy of the spot in Tier A, you ask? Three things: its damage, its reach, and that sweet, sweet area of effect damage. This is the weapon of choice when you plan to take multiple foes at once in your Viking survival trip.

III. Tier B

i. Porcupine

Blunt – 50

Pierce – 45

Block Power – 20

Parry Force – 30

Parry Bonus – 2

Knockback – 90

ItemMaterials Required
Porcupine5x Fine Wood
20x Iron
5x Needle
10x Linen Thread

Porcupine

The only mace in Valheim that sets you up with Blunt and Pierce Damage warrants a place in the Tier list. Damage equaling the Black Metal Sword, the only reason it is not in the A tier is because of its swing speed.

ii. Black Metal Axe

Slash – 95

Block Power – 20

Parry Force – 0

Parry Bonus – 2

Knockback – 60

ItemMaterials Required
Black Metal Axe6x Fine Wood
20x Black Metal
5x Linen Thread

Black Metal Axe

Tied right with the Black Metal Sword in terms of damage, but just like the Porcupine, it also loses out on speed. Thus, it’s spot is in Tier B.

iii. Abyssal Razor

Pierce – 12

Slash – 12

Backstab – 10

Knockback – 10

ItemMaterials Required
Abyssal Razor4x Fine Wood
20x Chitin
2x Leathers Scraps

Abyssal Razor

Crafted from the Kraken itself, the Abyssal Razor is not a common sight in Valheim as only the worthy can get it. One of the best daggers in the game closing in on the Black Metal version, the Abyssal Razor has the added advantage of increasing its sneak bonus by using it with the Troll Set.

IV. Tier C

i. Silver Sword

Slash – 75

Spirit – 30

Block Power – 10

Parry Force – 20

Parry Bonus – 2

Knockback – 40

ItemMaterials Required
Silver Sword2x Wood
40x Silver
3x Leathers Scraps
5x Iron

Silver Sword

The Silver Sword has its uses and comes in with a clutch in most situations. Too bad the Frostner is more versatile to trump it.

ii. Iron Sledge

Blunt – 55

Block Power – 15

Parry Force – 50

Parry Bonus – 2

Knockback – 200

ItemMaterials Required
Iron Sledge10x Ancient Bark
30x Iron
4x Ymir Flesh
1x Draugr Elite Trophy

Iron Sledge

Iron Sledge is the most mighty hammer in the game, and its Area of Effect damage ability, earns it a spot in the top weapons tier list.
