Our guide will provide you with a tier list of the best weapons in Curse of the Dead Gods. Some of them are champion’s weapons, which are rare types of weapons that drop from bosses under special circumstances. Read on to below and choose the best weapons for your character.

S-Tier Weapons

Primal Hammer

  • Type: Two-Handed Weapon
  • Category: Heavy
  • Locations: Ground, Chests, Sanctuaries

Primal Hammer is a crude weapon, but incredibly effective at smashing enemies to bits.

Each move consumes 1 point of stamina, but each move also deals more damage than any other weapon in the game. Its charged attacks are especially powerful, as Primal Hammer has a weakening effect on enemies, making this already extremely powerful weapon even stronger.

Primal Hammer has five tiers of upgrades. If you manage to upgrade it to its fullest potential, then it will deal twice as much damage than in its raw form.

Witch’s Crook

  • Type: Two-Handed Weapon
  • Category: Heavy
  • Locations: Champion’s Weapon

Witch’s Crook, also known as “K’etyaam yaan”, is another powerful hammer. It can be obtained by killing Xucat’, the Witch boss. Note that Witch’s Crook will drop only if Xucat’ dies while being on fire.

Xucat’ will attack you with skulls that serve both as mines and projectiles. Destroy the mines and dodge the projectiles, while chaining two combos to kill her.

Once she drops the Witch’s Crook, you can use its charged attacks to send out similar dark projectiles at your enemies.

A-Tier Weapons

T’amok’s Fury

  • Type: Off-Hand Weapon
  • Category: Whip
  • Locations: Champion’s Weapon

While hammers are still the most powerful weapons in Curse of the Dead Gods, they are mainly good against a single enemy at a time. Whips, on the other hand, are great for dealing damage to multiple enemies at once due to their spinning attacks.

T’amok’s Fury is not a usual whip, but the one made of fire that can be charged and then summon fire jewels that keep burning enemies that come in contact with them.

The only way this cool weapon can be obtained is by parrying the Sun Twin boss three times in a row. Then, once the boss is killed, there is a 20% chance that you will get T’amok’s Fury.

Bloodstake, Hunter’s Torment

  • Type: Two-Handed Weapon
  • Category: Spear
  • Locations: Champion’s Weapon

The most unique feature of this fierce-looking spear is its combo attack that allows you to throw a spear and let it pierce through all the enemies on its path.

However, obtaining this weapon is quite hard. It can be looted from Blood Hunter Champion after killing all of his Infernal Jaguars. Once this is done, the weapon will become available in the Forsaken Weaponry for 50 Jade Rings.

B-Tier Weapons

Duelist’s Shiv

  • Type: Off-Hand Weapon
  • Category: Dagger
  • Locations: Ground, Chests, Sanctuaries

Duelist’s Shiv may not be the strongest weapon, but it has a unique ability that gives you full stamina gauge.

Of course, you need to be able to evade attacks using the off-hand combo. Once you master this move, you will never have to wait for your stamina to restore.

Colt .45 Rainmaker

  • Type: Off-Hand Weapon
  • Category: Pistol
  • Locations: Ground, Chests, Sanctuaries

If you’re choosing a ranged weapon, then between bows and pistols, the Colt revolver would be the better choice.

The best feature of any ranged weapon in Curse of the Dead Gods is their ability to deal perfect shots. With most ranged weapons you sometimes deal them and sometimes not.

But with the Rainmaker, your charged attacks will always deliver perfect shots hitting enemies in their weakest spots.

Moonblade, Night’s Sword

  • Type: Main Weapon
  • Category: Sword
  • Locations: Ground, Chests, Sanctuaries

If the choice of your main weapon sits between maces and swords, then the answer is obviously swords, as they are much faster.

Moonblade is a terrific sword that can be found in regular spots and deals the most damage of all swords in the game.

Its charged attack is especially powerful and deals not only with a single target, but also damages all crossed enemies.

Those are the best weapons in Curse of the Dead Gods. You can check out our review of the game, and be sure to come back soon for more Curse of the Dead Gods guides.
