I really liked Crimson Rector Sword as it is one of the best weapons for the early game, as it has a high base damage. Even without upgrading the weapon, you can easily defeat many enemies with it. The Umbral enemies, on the other hand, aren’t designed to hit hard. That makes it the best weapon for easy areas, in my opinion.

  • Does a good amount of damage.
  • Can be obtained easily 
  • Only viable in early-game areas.

9- Rusty Cutter

My Personal Best Weapon For Early Game.

If you want a great weapon very early, then Rusty Cutter is a good choice, as it is one of my personal favorites. I have it currently at +4, as I have been having pretty fun using it and killing the enemies. The Congregator of Flesh didn’t give me much trouble with the short sword, which is why I consider it my personal best weapon for early games.

Rusty Cutter can be found in a lava pool located on the opposite side of Pieta’s Boss Fight Arena.

  • Getting it is easy.
  • Does some decent damage.
  • Not viable in mid and late-game areas.

8- Hammer of Holy Agony

The Best Early Game Weapon For Bleed.

I have tried different builds in Lords of the Fallen to understand it better, and when I had some points in Radiance, I tried Hammer of Holy Agony. At first glance, it looks like a weapon similar to Rusty Cutter, as the scaling and the damage are pretty similar. However, Hammer of Holy Agony might be better than Rusty Cutter as it inflicts 80 Bleed, too, which makes it the best choice for bleed early on.

It also does Holy Damage, which is great on some bosses. As the weapon is better than Rusty Cutter, it has higher requirements, too. You would need 13 Strength and 13 Radiance to wield it, but it will be worth the experience.

  • The damage is good.
  • Has a bleed status effect.
  • Not that useful in mid and late-game areas.

7- Angel’s Axe

The Best Early Game Strength Weapon.

If you want a Strength Weapon that is an absolute beast, Angel’s Axe is a great choice. You just need 22 Strength to wield Angel’s Axe. It won’t be much if you have chosen the Udirangr Warwolf. Also, the poise build-up from Angel’s Axe is insane, given that it is a Strength Base Weapon.

It also hits pretty hard, and that is why I have given it the best early-game strength weapon award. 

  • Can stagger normal enemies easily. 
  • The damage is good, too.
  • High stat requirements.

6- Anvil Hammer

The Best Alternative For Angel's Axe.

Anvil-Hammer

Best Weapons in Lords of the Fallen is not easy to determine, but Anvil Hammer is definitely on the list due to its massive damage. It is even better than the Angel’s Axe, and its requirements are low, too. You just need 18 Strength and 8 Agility, which you will have by default, and you will be able to wield it. If u didn’t like the previous weapon, then go for its best alternative, Anvil Hammer.

With the weapon, you would need to do some big swings and poise through the enemy’s attack, which might not be the ideal option. So, the best way to use Anvil Hammer is to time the strikes according to your opponent’s movement.

  • Reasonable stat requirements. 
  • Hits extremely hard.
  • Big swings leave you with openings.

5- Righteous Pulveriser

The Best Mid Game Radiance Weapon.
Righteous Pulveriser Stats Value

Weight 32.6

Most of the best weapons I found early in Lords of the Fallen are pretty much based on the Strength attribute, and Righteous Pulveriser is one of them. While you find many great weapons early on, Lords of the Fallen punishes you by the requirements to wield the weapon, which are very high for some. Still, Righteous Pulveriser is the best Radiance weapon for mid-game areas.

The other problem, along with the stat requirement, is the way to handle the weapon. It is pretty hard to handle a heavy weapon, and it can also limit your rolling. So, choose your weapon type and equipment wisely. 

  • Deals high Holy damage.
  • Has a bleed status effect.
  • Difficult to use.

4- Devotion’s Might

The Best Alternative For Righteous Pulveriser.

If you want to try a weapon that can make your game easy, then Devotion’s Might is a must-try weapon. I was shocked by how good the weapon is as it has high poise damage along with high damage. As you can hit multiple enemies with a single swing, you won’t have much trouble farming Vigor.

If you don’t like Righteous Pulveriser, you can simply use its best alternative, Devotion’s Might. Again, the weapon has a stat requirement problem, which can be a problem. You would need 28 Strength and 28 Radiance to just wield the weapon. 

  • Has a Smite status effect, and it does holy damage.
  • The scaling is good.
  • Stat requirements are high.

3- Pieta’s Sword

The Best Radiance Weapon In Lords of the Fallen.

Pieta is a boss in Lords of the Fallen that you will have to beat pretty early in-game. When you defeat her, you will get a remembrance, which can be used to get her weapon. Pieta’s Sword is one of the best weapons in Lords of the Fallen. If you went for the Radiance build, then I would recommend you get it as soon as possible, as it is the best radiance weapon in Lords of the Fallen.

It is a great weapon that deals holy damage and builds up smite on enemies. Smite is a pretty great status effect that can cause an enemy to explode, so make sure to give Pieta’s Sword a try.

  • Scales only with Radiance.
  • Has a Smite status effect.
  • Unlocks a secret art at +5 when paired with a +5 Elianne’s Sword. 
  • It has no cons.

2- Faithful Bludgeon

The Best Strength Weapon In Lords of the Fallen.

Weight 34.4 
Physical 168 + 32
Holy 0

Burn 100
Faithful-Bludgeon

I think Faithful Bludgeon is the second-best weapon in Lords of the Fallen. The good thing about the weapon is that it doesn’t have crazy stat requirements. You would only need 28 Strength. Once you have 28 Strength, you will be able to wield Faithful Bludgeon and destroy most of the enemies, making it the best strength weapon.

You should keep the weight in mind, as the weapon has a weight of 34.4, which is extremely high. It also inflicts Burn on the enemies, which just makes it a must-try weapon.

  • Reasonable stat requirements. 
  • Has a burn status effect.
  • Does massive damage.
  • Difficult to handle.

1- Bloody Glory

The Best Weapon In Lords of the Fallen.

Weight 35.1

Bleed 300
Bloody-Glory

The final weapon on my list is the Bloody Glory, and it is the best weapon I could find in Lords of the Fallen. While the weapon can be found early, it sure is viable in the late game, too. I would not recommend you to try out Bloody Glory in the early game, as the stats requirements are insane, and I can understand why.

It requires 20 Strength, 30 Agility, and 32 Radiance, which is just massive. The 300 Bleed Build-Up is what impressed me the most. With Bloody Glory, you will instantly inflict blood loss on enemies, which is insane. With the right gear and the right buffs, you can defeat many bosses with the weapon.

  • Has a whopping 300 bleed build-up.
  • Staggers enemies easily.
  • Deals massive damage.
  • Has hard stat requirements.

Alternative Weapons

There are some other weapons in Lords of the Fallen as well which players can try, however, I didn’t add them to my top 10 list due to various factors.

  • Ravager Gregory’s Sword: Inflicts Physical and holy damage, but it also does wither damage making it inferior to Bloody Glory.
  • Lightreaper’s Sword: It’s a two-handed sword known for its swift strikes and deadly precision, but it is heavier and has a lower swift speed.
  • The Iron Wayfarer’s Hammer: Stands out for its exceptional physical damage, but it is heavy and has predictably slow attacks.

Which Is The Best Weapon In Lords of the Fallen – My Take

With my experience so far, I think the best weapon in Lord of the Fallen is arguably the Bloody Glory.

It can be found pretty early, and as it is a beast, it is ranked at number 1 on my list. I am planning to make it my main weapon, so if you want to learn more about the weapon, you can comment on it. If you don’t want to use Bloody Glory, then there are many other great weapons I have ranked in the list. One of my personal favorites is the Rusty Cutter, which can be found pretty early.

That’s almost everything you would want to know about the best weapon to find in Lords of the Fallen. As not much time has passed since it was released, I mentioned the weapons that were found earlier. Some weapons might not be meant to be wielded in the early areas as their requirements are high. I would recommend you try any of the ten weapons I have listed in my guide.

While you are at it, you should also check out the guide on Best Attributes for each class in Lords of the Fallen so you can allocate the points better. After that, make sure to read the guide on How to Parry in Lords of the Fallen. Don’t forget to visit the page of the best DPS class to select the highest damage-dealing class.
