February 8, 2022: We'll start adding any new Deepwoken weapons discovered in the new update soon.

With the hotly anticipated Deepwoken now out in the wild, the race is now on to progress quickly and master the Roblox game ahead of the competition. And if you're just starting out, you'll likely be wondering which of the Deepwoken weapons is best.


However, there's just not a clear-cut answer at launch, so it'll be a case of testing whichever one suits your intended playstyle. To help you out in this endeavour, we've compiled together all of the Deepwoken weapons available at launch. This list could well grow over time as new updates arrive, and weapons that are good now could become great or even terrible should balance patches land.

Deepwoken is already famous for its high level of difficulty and harsh roguelike elements, so you've probably already thought to look for Deepwoken codes or info on the various Deepwoken races. Thankfully, we've got you covered there. If you're in need of more Roblox freebies, we also keep regularly updated lists of Project Hero codes, Blox Fruits codes, and even some YBA codes.

Deepwoken Weapons List

Weapon Description
GreataxeA heavy axe that is quite versatile
SwordA good all-rounder weapon that doesn't excel in one area
SpearA trident-like weapon that suits most combat encounters
GreatswordA heavy sword that can be tricky to use but effective once mastered
FistsNot so much a weapon as a means of defence when things go horribly wrong
PistolA solid ranged weapon that's handy if you're low on health
HammerA deadly hammer that makes for a strong weapon if used effectively
DaggerA small dagger that's ideal for getting a few quick hits in
ShieldA defensive shield for blocking enemy attacks
Parrying daggerA dagger designed for parrying enemy attacks

As you can see from the table above, there's not really one single weapon that stands out as the best right now. This could change soon enough as we continue to play through the game, but for launch, it's a good idea to just experiment with each to see what works for you.


If you're completely new to the game, we'd recommend chasing one of the simpler weapons, like the sword. Easy to use and predictable, it's a decent pick to get you up to speed on the combat, before you eventually test out some of the heavier Deepwoken weapons.

It's also worth noting that not all of these weapons are designed to cause damage. The shield, for example, is a defensive item that'll only really be useful during certain combat encounters. Should a new update come along that includes any additions or balance tweaks, we'll be sure to let you know right here.

How Can I Deal More Damage With Deepwoken Weapons?

If you're looking to deal a little more damage with your favourite Deepwoken weapons, you may want to pay attention to a recent update. On December 28, Heavy Weapon, Medium Weapon, and Light Weapon Mantras were added to the game. Details are sparse, but it's believed that if you pair these with the correct weapon choices, you'll be able to deal more damage.
