10. Dragontooth Club

Type Source Damage Critical Strike chance Purchase Price Stats
Club Ginger Island 80-100 0.02 Not Sold
  • Crit. Power (+50)
  • Weight (+3)

It’s a level 14 Club with some serious firepower, like many Dragontooth variations. With a seriously heavy power of 80-100, a Weight of +3 for heavy knockback, and a crazy Crit-Power of +50, it’s got power in spades. If you want the best weapon in Stardew Valley that packs good firepower, then Dragontooth Club will not disappoint you. 

Its most notable attribute is how high its critical damage goes; as with its Crit Power, it gets a 4x multiplier on its damage, reaching an astounding 320-400 damage per critical for some massive damage. Like other Dragontooth weapons, it can be acquired in the Volcano Dungeon through Dungeon Chests and thus can be acquired at no cost.

9. Wicked Kris

  • Skull Cavern
  • Haunted Skull Drop
24-30 0.06 Not Sold Crit. Chance (+4)

A level 8 Dagger will surely be useful for those looking for a quick and fast damage-dealing weapon with the special qualities of the dagger earlier in the game. With a solid 24-30 damage and a significantly increased Crit-Chance at +4, the Wicked Kris is an excellent crit weapon, especially when upgraded further, and will last you for quite a while.

The method to acquire it is simple: breaking boxes and barrels, a special monster drop in the Mines, or on Floor 40+ of the Skull Caverns.

8. Steel Falchion

Type Source Damage Critical Strike chance Purchase Price Stats
Sword Adventurer’s Guild 28-46 0.02 9,000g
  • Speed (+4)
  • Crit. Power (+20)

Don’t let its description deceive you; it may seem simple with the notion of being ‘Light and Powerful,’ but it’s quite an impressive weapon for when you get it once you lay an eye on its stats and bonuses. It’s a level 8 Sword, but it has a very solid damage range of 28-46 and a more relevant speed of +4.

Steel Falchion is one of the top swing speeds in the game and single-handedly shifts this from a relatively ordinary sword into one that’s several leagues more valuable than its pay grade. Along with the additional Crit-Power+20, this Sword will last you longer than you’d think.

7. Galaxy Hammer

Type Source Damage Critical Strike chance Purchase Price Stats
Club Adventurer’s Guild 70-90 0.02 75,000g
  • Speed (+2)
  • Weight (+5)

The only real draw against the Galaxy Hammer is, of course, its availability. After acquiring the Galaxy Sword, it’s only obtainable and needs an upfront payment of 75,000g. It is pretty worth its investment, though.

6. Galaxy Sword

Type Source Damage Critical Strike chance Purchase Price Stats
  • Adventurer’s Guild 
  • Three Pillars in the Calico Desert
60-80 0.02 50,000g Speed (+4)

As a level 13 Sword with a base damage of 60-80 and a stat boost of Speed+4, the Galaxy Sword is one weapon you just can’t go wrong with. It was by far the strongest weapon in the game for a time. Excellent for killing monsters of all kinds, and in any dungeon, it’s a truly powerful weapon in the right hands. That’s also why its acquiring method is one of the most obtuse in the game, explained by no NPC.

However, if you do know how to get it, it’s a piece of cake. All you need to do is go to the Pillars in the Desert, hold the Prismatic Shard up in your hands, and head directly to the middle of the rocks, where a small circle is formed. This will automatically begin a special ritual transforming your Prismatic Shard into your Galaxy Sword.

5. Infinity Gavel

Type Source Damage Critical Strike chance Purchase Price Stats
Club Forge in Volcano Dungeon 100-120 0.02 N/A
  • Speed (+2)
  • Defense (+1)
  • Weight (+5)

The Infinity Gavel is one weapon that’ll punish your enemies like no other. As a level 17 Club, it offers the highest base damage of any weapon in the game. Even better than Master Slingshot, though, this damage is highly consistent and will serve you well throughout the hardest sections of Stardew Valley.

It additionally offers an excellent Defense+1, Weight+5, and most notably of all, yet again, Speed+2. Like any Infinity weapon, it is available only by forging its predecessor, the Galaxy Hammer, with 3 Galaxy Souls and 60 Cinder Shards.

4. Dragontooth Shiv

Type Source Damage Critical Strike chance Purchase Price Stats
Dagger Ginger Island 40-50 0.05 Not Sold
  • Crit, Chance (+3)
  • Crit. Power (+100)
  • Weight (+5)

Don’t be fooled by its small appearance, and the Dragontooth Shiv is easily one of the most deadly weapons in the game. Dealing just 40-50 damage per swing seems just alright compared to some of the best weapons shown yet, until you look at its Crit-Power rating…of +100, the second highest of any single weapon.

That transforms into a heavy 200-300 damage per critical, leaving all but the strongest sliced up by this tiny Shiv. It is found in chests in the Volcano dungeon at random, so simply explore there to your heart’s content, and you might just stumble on a deadly little Shiv in one of your chests.

3. Infinity Dagger

Dagger Forge in Volcano Dungeon 50-70 0.06 N/A
  • Speed (+1)
  • Defense (+3)
  • Crit. Chance (+4)
  • Weight (+5)

The Infinity Dagger is a level 16 Dagger type that comes with an incredibly impressive 50-70 base damage. That’s incredibly high for Daggers in particular which allows them to make use of their multiple attacks to maximum effect.

As with all Infinity weapons, the problem is how to get it. You need to have a Galaxy Dagger, 3 Galaxy Souls, and 60 Cinder Shards before you intend to make this highly powerful weapon.

2. Infinity Blade

Type Source Damage Critical Strike chance Purchase Price Stats
Sword Forge in Volcano Dungeon 80-100 0.02 N/A
  • Speed (+4)
  • Defense (+2)

A level 17 Sword boasting an absolutely crazy 80-100 damage, it’s a worthy sword fit for any looking to defeat the toughest areas of the game with ease. It’s not easily acquired; however, as for materials to forge, it requires the prior mentioned Galaxy Sword on top of 3 Galaxy Souls and 60 Cinder Shards.

Each material is truly a major quest in itself, but the reward is oh-so worth it.  You must first forge the Galaxy Sword twice with 20 Cinder Shards and a Galaxy Soul for each item, maxing out its Forged Soul at 3/3. Now, if you try to forge it one final time with the same method, you will finally gain the absurdly powerful and aptly named Infinity Blade.

1. Iridium Needle

Type Source Damage Critical Strike chance Purchase Price Stats
Dagger The Mines 20-35 0.01 Not Sold
  • Crit. Chance (+6)
  • Crit. Power (+200)

The Iridium Needle may seem thorough and unimpressive at first glance at the damage, boasting only 20-35, a far cry from the best. But then you read further, and you see that Crit-Power.

With an utterly astonishing +200 Crit Power combined with an equally astounding +6 Crit Chance, the Iridium Needle is the weapon with the highest Critical Hit Chance and the highest Crit-Power in the game. It tops out at a mind-bending 42.84% Crit Chance and 14x damage multiplier with full critical investment.

Notably, this highly impressive weapon can only come from Special Slimes in The Mines during Qi’s Challenge “Danger In The Deep,” so watch out.

Other Honorable Mentions

Here are some other good weapons in Stardew Valley that I didn’t include in the guide. However, you might want to consider giving them a try as well.

  • Dragontooth Cutlass: A viable weapon for use, but its only drawback is that it can only be spotted in Volcano Dungeon on Ginger Isle inside a chest.
  • Dwarf Sword: A good weapon with a high damage range and significantly greater power than its shorter counterpart.
  • Lava Katana: This weapon has a great damage rate and is easy to obtain.
  • Dwarf Dagger: For a good defensive weapon, this one is the right choice for you.
  • Master Slingshot: This weapon is useful for killing enemies from a distance but is a bit difficult to handle.

That’ll be all from us on acquiring the best weapons in Stardew Valley. Are you already the proud owner of some of these weapons? Let us know in the comments.
