Witcher 3: Weapons Tier List [All Compared & Ranked]

Learn all there is to know about the all weapons, their stats, viability, and effectiveness in The Witcher 3 weapons tier list.

As the damage of each weapon is randomly generated based on Geralt’s level, I will rank them based on the potency of their special effects. These special effects include benefits to Signs and standard attacks.

Key Takeaways
  • The weapons tier list ranks all weapons based on the viability of their special effects.
  • As the damage of each weapon is randomly generated, it will not be taken into consideration.
  • S Tier consists of the weapons that offer the strongest special effects, mainly boosting all Signs. 
  • This tier includes Aerondight, which is one of, if not the best Silver Sword in The Witcher 3.
  • A Tier has incredibly powerful special effects, but they are a little bit weaker than the ones in S Tier.
  • B and C Tier weapons are decently viable, they can get the job done but will not make Geralt overpowered.
  • Lastly, D Tier weapons are completely useless and should be avoided.
Important: Keep in mind, that all weapons except D Tier are viable and can be used to play through the game.

Rankings Based On Experience And Knowledge

The tier list was written by me and eXputer’s writer Hassan Mujtaba, who has played The Witcher 3 religiously for 4 years. He has also completed the game on the hardest difficulty, Death March.

Death March’s Completion Trophy

Patch 4.04

The tier list is completely valid for Patch 4.04. I will update this tier list if CD Projekt RED introduces any new changes to weapons in their upcoming updates.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the greatest games ever made. It has set the standard for RPGs in the gaming industry. CD Projekt RED released a next-gen version of The Witcher 3, which ended up being one of the highest-rated games of 2023, with a 97 on Metacritic.

Take a look at the best Runeswords in The Witcher 3. Also, here is the best Gwent deck. Lastly, here are the best mods in The Witcher 3.
