Top 15 Best Weapons in Lords of the Fallen (2023)

Here’s a quick breakdown of our Top 15 best weapons in Lords of the Fallen:

Skinstealer Cleaver (Axe)

This broken piece of the jaw bone is a perfect one-handed melee weapon for close-quarter combat. It has both the Strength and the Inferno scaling C, which grants an additional 50% to your physical and fire damage. But it also requires your Strength and Inferno stats to have at least 15 points each.

  • How to get Skinstealer Cleaver: Defeat the Skinstealer boss at the Cistern in Sunless Skein.

Sin Piercer (Bow)

Bows are essential weapons for long-range combat and for all players who wish to go for an Agility build. Sin Piercer has the Agility scaling C+, which has a pretty high Agility stat requirement of at least 18 points. But once you can use it, expect some high physical, holy, fire, and wither damage.

  • How to get Sin Piercer: Purchase it from Thehk-Ihir at the Vestige of Rosamund in the Abbey of the Hallowed Sisters for 650 Vigor.

Abbess Chalice (Catalyst)

If you wish to focus on casting spells and building a character with various magical abilities, then you absolutely need a catalyst weapon. Abbess Chalice has a Radiance scaling B- and Spell Power of 94. This powerful magic weapon also requires your Radiance stat to have at least 22 points.

  • How to get Abbess Chalice: Defeat Abbess at the Abbey of the Hallowed Sisters or at The Empyrean.

Multishot (Crossbow)

Although crossbows are ranged weapons, in the Lords of the Fallen, you can go either for a Strength build and focus on close-range combat or for an Agility build and focus on long-range combat. But normal bows do just fine for long-range combat, so Multishot Crossbow would be the best choice with a Strength scaling B-.

  • How to get Multishot Crossbow: Find it inside a chest at the Umbral Flowerbed in the Abbey of the Hallowed Sisters.

Bloodletter (Fists)

Fists are unique melee attachments that can be equipped on both hands. These are extremely fast and powerful melee weapons that have some magical power, too. I especially like Bloodletter due to it having both Agility and Radiance scaling C. It deals hefty physical and holy damage, as well as causing bleeding.

  • How to get Bloodletter: Defeat the Crimson Rector who stands near the elevator at the Pilgrim’s Perch.

Blacksmith’s Pride (Flail)

When you encounter heavily armored enemies, there’s no better weapon against them than the flail. Blacksmith’s Pride has an Agility and Inferno scaling C+. It causes massive frostbite and deals both physical and wither types of damage.

  • How to get Blacksmith’s Pride: Find it inside an Umbral Belly at the Upper Calrath B right after the Skinstealer boss fight.

The Toll (Grand Axe)

Players who prefer carrying a massive two-handed axe will be especially impressed with the power of The Toll. This massive weapon has a Strength and Agility scaling C with a total attack power of 157. It deals both physical and holy types of damage, but it requires your Strength and Agility stats to have at least 23 points.

  • How to get The Toll: Pick it up from the altar after defeating an Ardent Penitent and a Scourged Sister at the Abbey of the Hallowed Sisters.

Devotion’s Might (Grand Hammer)

An extremely heavy, two-handed blunt weapon like a grand hammer can literally smash any foe into the ground. Of course, such weapons require high Strength and Radiance, but once you are capable of wielding them, there’s no chance for your enemies to survive. Devotion’s Might has an attack power of 166, and it deals 100 smite damage.

  • How to get Devotion’s Might: Dropped by an Umbral Parasite under the wooden platforms in the area behind the Vestige of Blind Agatha at Pilgrim’s Perch.

Justice (Grand Sword)

If you’re looking for something even stronger than the grand hammer, then I highly recommend picking up a massive two-handed grand sword, Justice. I’d use it on especially strong bosses, as this weapon requires a hefty 34 points in your Strength stat for you to be able to wield it. Its attack power is a bit lower than that of Devotion’s Might, but its smite damage is twice as high.

  • How to get Justice: Find it behind the boxes at the enemy camp next to a cave entrance in the Revelation Depths.

Judge Cleric’s Corrupted Sword (Long Sword)

Swords with longer blades are excellent against groups of enemies, as they have the required reach to wipe them all with a single swing. Judge Cleric’s Corrupted Sword is a unique weapon that has all four types of scaling and thus provides players with the most versatile damage output in the game.

  • How to get Judge Cleric’s Corrupted Sword:
    1. Defeat Judge Cleric, the Radiant Sentinel boss at The Empyrean.
    2. Soulflay her Stigma for it to drop the Remembrance of Judge Cleric, The Radiant Sentinel.
    3. Give the Remembrance to Molhu at Skyrest Bridge in exchange for this sword.

Hammer of Holy Agony (Hammer)

A simple hammer may be of great use when you’re trying to stagger enemies and break through their defenses. My favorite hammer in the game is the Hammer of Holy Agony, which has the Strength and Radiance scaling D+. It’s covered in spikes, so it also deals tons of bleeding damage on top of physical and holy damage.

  • How to get Hammer of Holy Agony: Find it under the bone bridge after picking up the Brawn Ring at Pilgrim’s Perch.

Conflagrant Seer Staff (Polearm)

I’d recommend weapons like staves and polearms to players who want to keep enemies at a safe distance. The Conflagrant Seer Staff is particularly interesting due to its Infernal scaling C+ and 100 burn damage. It requires your Inferno stat to have at least 21 points.

  • How to get Conflagrant Seer Staff: Defeat Conflagrant Seer boss at the Bramis Castle.

Pieta’s Sword (Short Sword)

Beginner players will find carrying a shield a very useful strategy, especially when paired with a short sword in your other hand for quick and precise cuts. Pieta’s Sword is a fantastic little weapon with the Radiance scaling C- and a ton of smite damage.

  • How to get Pieta’s Sword:
    1. Defeat Pieta, She of Blessed Renewal boss at the Skyrest Bridge.
    2. Soulflay her Stigma for it to drop the Remembrance of Pieta, She of Blessed Renewal.
    3. Give the Remembrance to Molhu at Skyrest Bridge in exchange for this sword.

Judge Cleric’s Spear

If you’re not too keen on using staves or polearms, but you still want to keep a certain distance from enemies and deal powerful thrusting damage, then opt for the spear weapons instead. Judge Cleric’s Spear has the Radiance scaling C+ and Agility scaling E with a strong smite type of damage.

  • How to get Judge Cleric’s Spear:
    1. Defeat Judge Cleric, the Radiant Sentinel at The Empyrean.
    2. Soulflay his Stigma for it to drop the Remembrance of Judge Cleric, the Radiant Sentinel.
    3. Give the Remembrance to Molhu at Skyrest Bridge in exchange for this spear.

Left-hand Lightreaper (Dagger)

The last weapon on our list is a light and fast dagger that can be well used in the right hands, dealing extremely swift and stealthy strikes when enemies don’t expect them. Left-hand Lightreaper has both Agility and Inferno scaling C with a decent burn damage effect.

  • How to get Left-hand Lightreaper:
    1. Defeat The Lightreaper boss at the Bramis Castle.
    2. Soulflay his Stigma for it to drop the Remembrance of The Lightreaper.
    3. Give the Remembrance to Molhu at Skyrest Bridge in exchange for this dagger.
