In Dauntless, you’ll find some weapons that you can use from the starting and from which you’ll be able to perfect your techniques as you progress through the game.
Aside from knowing the best weapons in Dauntless, you must also consider what types of weapons are most recommended for new players. And it is not as easy to use a sword as a spear or an ax, and that is why you need to know the type of weapons you should use during your first few hours in the game.
In our ideal weapons for new players guide, we’ll show you what are the best weapons for beginners in Dauntless considering their ease of use, their learning curve and the damage they can exert to your opponents.
It is a simple and handy weapon that allows you to perform quite direct combos, but very effective. Many swords that you’ll find in Dauntless have an average balance with a reasonably fast attack pattern, and can inflict some additional damage in combos. You should also take a look at the best swords in the game to go with them.
Simple to handle but bit heavier and slower than the sword, and takes a lot of damage. Of course, you must have an eye for anticipation and patience to chain consecutive hits. It is especially ideal to get certain parts of the Behemoth, due to its enormous power of blow. If you manage to upgrade it, you can also use it for long distance attacks.
Just like axe, it can cause a considerable amount of damage and is usually quick. You can also use it to damage Behemoth body parts. The fact that it is a little less recommended for beginners than the axe, is that you should keep an eye on the resistance of the character since the hammer is quite heavy and you could be in a bad situation in the fight if you don’t have some experience. It also allows you to shock enemies because of their enormous power.
Dual blade (Fight of the Shrike)
It is the fastest weapon in the whole game. It allows you to attack both near and far, but knowing how to bridge distances. You could start using the blades when you have been enjoying the previous weapons for a few hours.
War Pike (Spear)
It has a combination of attack characteristics since it is as big as an axe, as fast as the blades and as efficient as the sword. This makes it have a very balanced attack pattern but unbalanced at the same time if you don’t have the right experience. It allows you to perform standard attacks such as drilling and also cutting. With the upgrades you can get a charged attack that could ostensibly damage the Behemoth.
You won’t get them immediately, although we want to show you how to get them. They are the only full-range weapons that allow you to achieve an almost perfect balance between offensive and defensive play. The bad thing is that they don’t have any special attacks, but if you know how to take advantage of each of its components, it could be a weapon to use when you have been enjoying Dauntless for a few days.
