Naraka Bladepoint Best Melee Weapons

The game is filled with a variety of weapons, both ranged and melee. Therefore, we will be splitting the weapons according to their range. This section will cover the best melee weapons in Naraka Bladepoint. 

As of right now, there are seven melee weapons in the game, with some being way better than others. It is worth noting that your own playstyle will also determine which might be the best weapon for you, but these weapons will be discussed according to what works for the majority of the players. 

Longsword 

Naraka Bladepoint Best Weapons
Naraka Bladepoint – Longsword

The Longsword is perhaps one of, if not the, best melee weapon in Naraka Bladepoint. Although it does not have the greatest damage out of all the melee weapons, it is well-rounded and straightforward enough that even beginners can pick it up and become deadly.

But that does not mean that those with more experience can’t make the most of the blade. The Longsword has enough combo potential such that those that have been playing for long enough can push it to the limits. 

In accordance with its name, the Longsword has a long reach, allowing you to maintain a fair distance while you take on enemies. It can even give you an advantage over players that need to get extremely close while wielding something such as the dagger. 

Additionally, the forward-lunge attacks will let you close distance with your enemies easily and follow up with deadly combos.

Furthermore, you can use the focus attacks of the Longsword to send out shockwaves, which makes it great for mid-range attacks as well. But do bear in mind that the shockwaves can be parried. But the shockwaves are effective against new players who might not be expecting such an attack. 

Spear

Moving on from something that is well-balanced to something that is great for picking out enemies at a long melee distance, we have the Spear. As expected, it has a greater range than the Longsword and used to be so powerful that it had to be nerfed. 

Despite the nerf, it still is one of the most unpredictable and strongest melee weapons in Naraka Bladepoint. It has a unique flow in its normal and focuses attacks, allowing you to catch your opponents off-guard with ease. 

One of the best combos in the game actually belongs to the Spear. The Dragonslayer combo is widely used and popular in the game. It lets you land a barrage of whirling spear attacks that, if anyone gets caught in, will not be able to dodge at all. There are also other spinning attacks that you can make use of that might make the Spear a better weapon than the other melee weapons.

You can also make use of the tracking assist, which tends to be a lot better with the Spear than in any other melee weapon. What that means is that you will have a higher chance of hitting enemies that are in your range.

The only thing that you need to consider when using the Spear is that you can get punished for spamming light attacks. So, when using it, try to vary your attacks! 

Dagger

Moving to the complete opposite end of the range, we have the dagger. The dagger is definitely one of the more complex weapons in the game, but if you’re looking for something with more movement-based combos and special features, then this might be the weapon for you. 

The dagger allows for fast-paced combos, and you can move around your opponent with ease as you dish out attacks. Sometimes the quick combos can actually be faster than the focus attacks and the unique Dagger Dash combo that the weapon has to offer. 

You can also use the horizontal or vertical attack to close up the distance between your targets. Just ensure you don’t get parried while performing those moves. 

It goes without saying that the dagger does not have the highest damage per hit. However, as it is considered the fastest melee weapon in Naraka Bladepoint, the speed makes up for it!

Nunchucks

Nunchucks are perhaps the most complicated weapon of Naraka Bladepoint. However, if you’re able to master it, the rewards are equally worth the complication of learning it.

The combos of the nunchuck deal a lot of damage and even have a high chance of stun locking your enemies, whether they be in mid-air or on the ground. An additional feature of the nunchuck is that it can also attack downed enemies. 

But what makes the nunchucks confusing is the meter. The meter is something that only the nunchucks have. If you parry attacks or take damage, your meter will fill up or get one charge. Using focus attacks requires you to have at least a one-meter charge.

So, unless your parrying skills are amazing, then perhaps the nunchucks might not be the greatest option for you. But if you can learn to adapt, then your enemies won’t even know what hit them! 

Katana

If you like using the Longsword but wish it would be faster, then the Katana is the weapon for you. However, you’ll be giving up your range and damage output in exchange for speed. 

The focus attacks are great for slicing through the air and dealing damage. But they can also be parried, so be careful and don’t overdo them. 

Due to all these limitations, the Katana might not be considered the best one-to-one fight weapon. But if you’re using a character that relies on stealth or land hits and runs away by using the grapple hook ambush attacks, then the Katana can work for you. 

If you want to improve the weapon, you can use the Katana-specific Souljades. Unfortunately, even after those upgrades, you’ll only bring it on par with some of the base versions of the other weapons. 

Greatsword

Greatsword
Naraka Bladepoint – Greatsword

The Greatsword is considered one of the lower-ranked weapons when discussing the best weapons in Naraka Bladepoint. You’ll essentially be trading power for speed. You’ll definitely be able to deal a lot of damage as the Greatsword is the highest damage-dealing melee weapon. But that is only if you’re able to land hits in the first place.

The combos of the Greatsword are shorter and cover less ground as well. Due to the tardiness of the Greatsword, you’ll often find yourself finding it hard to catch your enemy and taking more damage due to their own combos and speed. 

Bloodripper

In theory, the Bloodripper is meant to be an amazing weapon. It is really powerful and takes only a few hits to defeat an enemy. Unfortunately, it’s too slow, with its focus attacks taking extremely long times to charge up. 

That’s why we’d recommend that you only go for this if you don’t have any other options or simply like playing with it. 

Naraka Bladepoint Best Ranged Weapons 

Moving on to the next category, we have weapons that you can use from a distance. There are 7 ranged weapons as of right now, and all provide different playstyles. 

Ideally, you want to use the ranged weapons to chip off your enemy’s health before the real battle. You can stay out of their sights before landing devastating combos up close once your enemy is off-balance. 

Bow

The Bow is considered the best-ranged weapon in Naraka Bladepoint due to its charged shots. 

These charged shots are considered the highest damage dealing ranged attacks next to the Musket’s shots. But the better rate of fire makes the Bow stand out from the Musket. 

But even with a higher fire rate, the Bow is still slower when attacking. Additionally, the low ammo capacity and relatively weaker normal shots can be a turn-off for some players. 

If you’re playing with a stealth character, then the Bow is the perfect choice for you. 

Musket 

<img class=”size-large wp-image-74894″ src=”https://exputer.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/07/Musket-Naraka-Bladepoint-1024×584.jpg” alt=”””

The Musket is quite similar to the Bow, and you can consider it like a bolt-action sniper rifle or a heavy bow. It shoots strong single shots with the charged shots, and a larger magazine/ammo capacity is its advantage. 

When you’re using ranged weapons, you mostly should be at a distance and hiding as you use them. Doing so with the Musket will allow you to safely charge and release a shot to significantly damage your enemy before the main encounter. 

The Musket also lets you zoom in so you can land shots more accurately. The only drawback is that after a few hits, you will need to charge the weapon, and the bullets travel slowly. But if you can get used to those mechanics, you’ll have a great time using the Musket. 

Repeating Crossbow

If you’re frustrated with the Bow and Musket’s slow rate of fire, then perhaps the Repeating Crossbow might be the best weapon for you. It has a fast rate of fire, meaning you can defeat enemies quickly. 

However, the Repeating Crossbow requires you to aim carefully as it covers a small area and takes a few seconds to reposition. That makes it highly situational. The best use case of the weapon is if you’re observing two players fighting each other. You can take both sides out before being spotted. 

But if a player is aware of your presence, then landing shots would be hard as they can dodge easily. That’s why if you’re cornered and need to land a shot quickly, the Crossbow is not the weapon for that situation.  

Pistol

Pistol Ranged Weapon
Naraka Bladepoint – Pistol

The next weapon on our best Naraka Bladepoint weapons list is the Pistol. The Pistol in Naraka Bladepoint is quite confusing and acts more like a shotgun. It’s mostly effective in close combat, almost to the point where you’d be in the melee range. 

The short reload times allow the weapon to be used for close combat with ease. However, the lack of combos and options to counter makes you wonder if you should really use the Pistol or stick to a melee weapon. 

But if you’re in a bit of a pickle, then the Pistol can be quite handy as long as you land your shots. 

Swarm

The Swarm is a ranged weapon that you can use at a distance and also up close. It is essentially like a rocket launcher that fires a jar of poisonous bees in your direction. 

It is usually not advised to use the weapon at a close range due to the charge time. But if you can land shots, you’ll be able to deal great damage in a broad area. As with the other weapons, you want to use the Swarm while hiding away from your enemy. 

Flamebringer

Unfortunately, the Flamebringer is mostly just looks rather than actual output. Its damage is lower than some of the other ranged weapons, and we only include this weapon due to the broad area of effect and no charge times. 

Additionally, it can be hard to counter if you actually get stuck in flames, but your enemy would have to be in there for a while for you to deal significant damage.

The broad AoE means that you can damage multiple enemies at once. Its major use would be when you’re playing in squads, and your other teammates can handle enemies while you come in with the Flamebringer. Therefore, what we can say is that the Flamebringer is the best-ranged weapon in Naraka Bladepoint for squads. 

Cannon

Naraka Bladepoint Best Weapons
Naraka Bladepoint – Cannon

The Cannon is great at dealing splash damage to whatever lands in its path. However, it can be hard to get a hit unless the enemy does not expect the attack. 

But if a player does spot you with it, the tardiness of the weapon will be no match to double jumping, grapple hooking, or any other dodging techniques. That is why the Cannon is something that you should only use when you don’t have any other options. 

With that, you know everything about the best weapons in Naraka Bladepoint. There are definitely some weapons that are far superior to others, but in the end, it all depends on your playstyle!
