Tuanosaur Greataxe

  • Damage: 44
  • Impact: 50
  • Attack Speed: 1.1
  • Durability: 300
  • Weight: 4.0

The strongest axe and melee weapon in general in the game is a two-handed Tuanosaur Greataxe. This weapon inflicts extreme bleed damage, which is a highly efficient ability in combat.

Tuanosaur Greataxe can only be crafted using the following recipe:

  • 2x Alpha Tuanosaur tail
  • 1x Brutal Greataxe
  • 1x Palladium Scrap

Tuanosaurs can be found dwelling in Hallowed Marsh. You will need to kill two alpha species in order to obtain their tails.

The Brutal Greataxe can be located in three places:

  • Damp Hunter's Cabin in Enmerkar Forest
  • Vendavel
  • Immaculate's Cave

Palladium Scrap can be mined at Palladium Veins in Enmerkar Forest, Hallowed Marsh, or Abrassar.

Tsar Claymore

  • Damage: 76
  • Impact: 60
  • Attack Speed: 0.8
  • Durability: Infinite
  • Weight: 9.0

This sword does not only possess a massive amount of damage, but it also has the infinite durability stat, which doesn't require its owners to repair it. This definitely makes the Tsar Claymore one of the most desired weapons in Outward.

Just like Tuanosaur Greataxe, it can only be crafted using this recipe:

  • 2x Tsar Stone
  • 1x Palladium Scraps
  • 1x Hackmanite

There are three locations where you can get the Tsar Stone without completing any quests:

  • Northeast of Chersonese
  • Electric Lab at Abrassar
  • Dark Ziggurat at Jade Lich

Hackmanite can be mined at Conflux Mountain and Aurai, while Palladium at Enmerkar Forest, Hallowed Marsh, and Abrassar.

Worldedge Greataxe

  • Damage: 13/40
  • Impact: 48
  • Attack Speed: 1.1
  • Durability: 525
  • Weight: 6.0

Although, the Worldedge Greataxe has only 13 points of physical damage, its main advantage is the 40 decay damage, which completely ignores enemy's armor.

In order to obtain this axe follow these steps:

  1. Enter the Forest Hives cave at the Colossal Hive ( southeast of Enmerkar Forest)
  2. Kill the Hive Lord boss on the other end of the cave
  3. Loot his body for the axe

Pillar Greathammer

  • Damage: 61
  • Impact: 75
  • Attack Speed: 0.8
  • Durability: 475
  • Weight: 12.0

This huge mace is a reference to the infamous Dark Souls boss Smough, who wielded the similar kind of weapon.

In order to retrieve this weapon you need to travel to the Spire of Light at the Hallowed Marsh region. Pillar Greathammer can be found in the wall behind the Legacy chest.

This weapon has no special effects, but its sheer power is capable of dealing with almost any type of enemies.

Thrice-Wrought Halberd

  • Damage: 18/18
  • Impact: 43
  • Attack Speed: 1.1
  • Durability: 425
  • Weight: 8.0

Here is one of the most unique weapons in Outward. This halberd deals no physical damage, but instead it inflicts the power of fire and frost combined onto its enemies.

Follow these steps on how to obtain Thrice-Wrought Halberd:

  1. Go to Cabal of Winds Temple in the south-west of the Enmerkar Forest
  2. Kill five Shell Horror enemies
  3. Wait for the wall inside the main chamber to disappear
  4. Pick up the halberd near the chest behind the wall

Horror Bow

  • Damage: 18/18
  • Impact: 43
  • Attack Speed: 1.1
  • Durability: 425
  • Weight: 8.0

One of the best ranged weapons in Outward is a poisonous Horror Bow. This unique weapon can be crafted using the following recipe:

  • 2x Horror Chitin
  • 1x War Bow
  • 1x Occult Remains

Horror Chitin is dropped by the same Shell Horror creatures you could see in the Cabal of Wind temple.

The bandits in the Enmerkar Forest drop War Bow when killed. So just find a bandit camp, kill some archers, and loot their bodies.

Occult Remains can be acquired from either Burning Man or Wendigo for 30 silver.
