How To Get Secret Weapons in V Rising

Having said that, in this guide, you will know about Secret weapons in V Rising, their stats, and where to get them. There are four secret weapons in the game; remember, they are considered some of the best weapons because you cannot craft them; they can only be found in certain places.

While you are at it consider reading our guide about V Rising Dark Silver Ingots. Those weapons are: Bone crossbow, Lumberjack Axe, Miner’s Mace, and the last one and a special one too is General’s Soul Reaper.

Bone Crossbow

The unique ability of the crossbow is that you can fire it from the distance and still inflict heavy damage on your enemies, without even coming near to them, but be cautious because its rate of attacking is slow. Although, the weapon has snapshot skill, in which you fire an intense bolt and attack the enemy and cause as much as 75% damage. However, its main attack does 115% damage to the enemy. This special Bone Crossbow requires a gear level of 6. 

The special Bone Crossbow cannot be crafted, and this weapon can only be found as a drop at bandit camps in Farbane woods.

General’s Soul Reaper

Reaper is a great weapon when it comes to defending your castle from the monsters in PVE situations. With the reaper’s swing, you can do huge damage to your foes. However, due to its slow movement, it might not be best against other players.  

General’s Soul Reaper is no ordinary weapon, and it is perhaps the coolest and most powerful weapon that V Rising has. However, it has similar abilities to Merciless iron reaper, but with some extra abilities like +6 spell power and +6 spell crit chance. The gear level of the reaper is 18. When it comes to the Secret weapons, this weapon is the most special one in V Rising.

Unlike other weapons that can be unlocked through research desk and study, to acquire General’s soul reaper, you need a special recipe. Orb of knowledge is required to unlock the smithy, but these are hidden recipes that can only be achieved by killing the undead general. While you are at it, why not read our guide about V Rising Gear progression.

In order to kill the undead general, there are certain places where you can find him. One of the places is haunted iron mines; another place you can approach him is at the church of damn. But be careful; he is at Level 49; killing him would be hellish. We would suggest you have at least level 50 before you challenge the enemy.  

After you murder the creepy general, you will see the item dropped on the field. It will be a recipe for a general soul reaper. Moreover, it’s not a book but a rune stone that will be visible in inventory.

Place all these in the input section, and you will get your General’s soul reaper.  

Miner’s Mace

The specialty of Mace is that it is specifically used to get the minerals such as Iron. But that is not the only use case Mace has, and this weapon has the ability to hit the hardest and inflict the most damage. Also, the Miner’s Mace has crushing blow and smack abilities; with these, you can cause extra damage to your foes, and they can be used Simultaneously.

Mace does three attacks in a row, the first swipe attack does damage around 50%, and the last attack does 60% damage. To get Miner’s Mace, you need to have gear level 7. 

This upgraded version of Mace cannot be crafted through any recipe but can only be obtained at Bandit camps near Farbane woods.
