Avatar Frontiers of Pandora: Best Weapons [Top 5]

After 40+ hours, here is my recommendations for weapons to use in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora.

In Avatar Frontiers of Pandora, there are some weapon choices between Na’vi and RDA, so figuring out the best weapons could be hard. I have spent over 10 hours in-game to figure out what the best weapons players can use are. The weapon mod increases the weapon power even more, so that should also be considered. 

Key Takeaways
  • There are two different categories of weapons in Avatar Frontiers of Pandroa: RDA and Na’vi.
  • The best RDA weapon players can get early on is the RCA-SCII Light Shotgun.
  • The range is questionable, so players should mostly use it in close combat.
  • Pairing the shotgun with the Aranahe Poison Heavy Bow will make a deadly combination.
  • The Aranahe Poison Heavy Bow has great range and damage.

The following is an overview of the best weapons I could find in-game:

WeaponHow To GetBenefit
Staff SlingSo'lek gives the Staff Sling to you while you are completing the Becoming quest.It works like a grenade launcher and can be used to set up traps and distract enemies.
Assault RifleYou can get the Assault Rifle while doing the Becoming quest when you have save Alma.It can do huge damage to the opponents and its bullets can be obtained from a destroyed mech.

Staff SlingSo'lek gives the Staff Sling to you while you are completing the Becoming quest.It works like a grenade launcher and can be used to set up traps and distract enemies.

One of the best weapons in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora is the Staff Sling.  It can be used in close range as well as in long range. Moreover, you can even set traps with him for the enemies. I have used it to destroy the mechs, as it is pretty effective against them.

I have given it the best Early Game Weapon award just because of how well it can be used in combat. You can set up the bomb traps, use siren pods to distract enemies, and use a stunk pod to make the RDA along with the wildlife repel.

  • Really good starting weapon that can be used to kill almost every early-game enemy.
  • Used to set up traps for the enemies.
  • Doesn’t cost you anything, as So’lek gives it after doing the quest Becoming.

  • If used directly in combat, the Staff Sling can leave you vulnerable.
  • The enemies might not step up on the trap.
  • Doesn’t have that much of a long range. 

4. Assault Rifle

The Best Free Weapon.

Assault RifleYou can get the Assault Rifle while doing the Becoming quest when you have save Alma.It can do huge damage to the opponents and its bullets can be obtained from a destroyed mech.

In Avatar Frontiers of Pandora, weapons like Assault Rifle belong to the RDA. There are two weapon categories: the Na’vi one and the RDA one. Both are great, but of course, an Assault Rifle shines more in battle than a bow. It can be obtained for free and is a really good upgrade from the previous weapons.

I am still using the Assault Rifle because it is one of the best options to use in-game. On top of that, it is free, which is why I consider it the best free weapon. I would recommend not using it against the animals as it would just totally ruin it. So, it is made just to kill the enemies. 

  • Does a lot of damage.
  • You can easily get the bullets by destroying a mech. 
  • Doesn’t cost you a single penny, as you will get it during a mission.

  • Killing wildlife with an assault rifle would ruin it, as you won’t get anything.
  • Magazine ends faster, which leaves you open to enemies.
  • Reload time is high, which again leaves you open to enemies.

3. RCA-SCII Light Shotgun

The Best Close Range Weapon.

RCA-SCII Light ShotgunYou can get the RCA-SCII Light Shotgun by doing the Unsung Hunter Quest and hack the chest.It dominates in close range and can get even better with a weapon mod.

After getting the Assault, you can get the RCA-SCII Light Shotgun soon enough. It is a great choice to get, and it destroys the enemies at close range. The weapon is also free, and you can get it by doing the Unsung Hunter Quest. You will have to hack the chest in order to get it.

If you want to destroy the enemies in close range, then without a second thought, get the RCA-SCII Light Shotgun. Make sure to get the weapon for it to get the most out of it. When paired with a heavy bow or a longbow, the shotgun is unstoppable.    

  • Deals a great amount of damage at close range. 
  • You can destroy the mechs in close range without a second thought.
  • Reward that you can get while doing a mission.

  • Good in long-range because of the fact that it is a shotgun.
  • A modded shotgun is way better than a normal shotgun.

2. So’lek’s Lightning Longbow

The Best Early Game Bow.

So'lek's Lightning LongbowYou can purchase the So'lek's Lightning Longbow from So'lek for 2 RDA Duty Rosters.It does more damage if full drawn and can stun enemies too.

If you want a weapon with decent range, damage, and a lightning effect on it, then go for So’lek’s Lightning Longbow. It is one of the best in-game options, and you can get it pretty early. You can buy the weapon directly from So’lek.

It is the best longbow in the early parts of the game as it stuns the enemies and does 20%  additional damage when fully charged.  That is very helpful in many cases, making it a great pick. It just costs 2 RDA Duty Rosters, so you will have to find them.

Also, consider going through our guide on Best Skills and Ikran skills to pair with these weapons for solid character build in Avatar.

  • Deals a great amount of damage despite being a longbow.
  • Does 5%  additional damage to the wildlife.
  • Upon being fully drawn, it will do 20% more damage due to the Storm  Arrow.

  • Costs 2 RDA Duty Rosters, which isn’t something you can easily get early.
  • Damage is low if compared with a heavy bow.

1. Aranahe Poison Heavy Bow

The Best Heavy Bow In Game

Aranahe Poison Heavy BowYou can get the Aranahe Poison Heavy Bow from Kitangi at the Hometree.It is a heavy bow so it takes time to be fully drawn but it deals a lot of damage.

While people can have different opinions, I really like the Aranahe Poison Heavy Bow because it can be obtained so early. You can get many other mods, which might be better, but you might not get them as early as you can get them, making it one of the best weapons in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora.

I actually like the heavy bows more in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora. They deal a huge amount of damage, and the draw animation is pretty cool. However, it is easy to mess up the timing, but if you master it, you can destroy enemies with it in the long run. It is why I consider it the best Heavy Bow in-game.

  • Deals poison damage along with Raw damage.
  • The raw damage is already pretty good.
  • Aranahe Poison Heavy Bow has a great range.

  • The time to draw the weapon fully is long.
  • The damage and range depend on how much you draw it, so if you mess up, you can waste a shot.
  • You need Kitangi’s maximum clan favor to buy it from her.

My Take On The Best Weapon

I consider the Aranahe Poison Heavy Bow to be the best weapon in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora so far.

That is just my opinion on the weapon, and I might be biased as I really like heavy bows. So, you can choose whichever weapon you like the best. I consider the Aranahe Poison Heavy Bow the best due to its compact range, damage, and early availability.   

That is almost everything you would want to know about the best weapons. I have created the top 5 best weapons list based on my experience in-game. You can choose any weapon based on your preference, but make sure to give the one that I recommend a try. Also, read the complete and honest review of Avatar Frontiers of Pandora by Huzaifa Durani.
