Elden Ring Weapon Tier List: Best Weapons in Elden Ring

In Elden Ring, combat is a crucial part of the game. Whether you’re taking on enemies head-on or sneaking around them, having the right weapon for the job is essential. With so many options to choose from, though, it can be tough to know which weapons are the best.

That’s why we’ve put together this tier list of the best Elden Ring weapons. Whether you’re looking for the best close-quarters weapon or the best long-range option, this list has you covered.

Elden Ring Weapons Tierlist

Melee Weapons

 Sword – The sword is the most basic and commonly-used melee weapon in Elden Ring. It’s versatile and can be used in a variety of situations, making it a great option for beginners. However, its relatively short range can be a drawback in some situations

 Axe – The axe is a powerful melee weapon that deals a lot of damage. Its main downside is its slow speed, which can make it difficult to use against faster enemies

 Spear – The spear is a mid-range weapon that strikes a balance between the sword and the axe. It’s fast enough to keep up with most enemies, but its reach is longer than the sword’s, making it ideal for attacking from a distance

Ranged Weapons

Bow – The bow is one of the best long-range weapons in Elden Ring. It’s accurate and damaging, making it perfect for taking down enemies from afar. However, its somewhat slow reload time can be a drawback in fast-paced combat situations

 Crossbow – The crossbow is similar to the bow, but with a couple of key differences. First, it’s much slower to reload, so it’s not ideal for use in close-quarters combat. Second, its shots are much more powerful, making it perfect for taking down tougher enemies quickly

 Magic – Magic is perhaps the most versatile ranged weapon in Elden Ring. There are a wide variety of spells available, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. While magic isn’t necessarily the best option for every situation, its versatility makes it worth considering for any player’s arsenal

Tips for Using Weapons in Elden Ring

No matter what weapon you choose, there are a few general tips that will help you get the most out of combat in Elden Ring. First, make sure to keep moving. Standing still makes you an easy target, so always be on the lookout for enemies and be ready to dodge.

Best Elden Ring Weapons: Tier List Explained

The weapons in Elden Ring will be tiered as follows:

S-Tier There is no doubt that weapons are the best tools in the game.

A-Tier While weapons are powerful, they pale in comparison to S-Tier.

B-Tier Although characters are powerful, you’ll need a suitable build to go with them.

C-Tier In general, weapons are not as good as the tiers above them, even though there is nothing necessarily bad about them. If something better is an option, you should go for it without hesitation.

D-Tier The weapons at the top of the bottom half are mostly inavoidable, and this is the zone you should (mostly) avoid. A lot of basic weapons fall into this category..

E-Tier Most weapons aren’t very powerful.

F-Tier Wands, bows and arrows, spears, magic spells, dragon-slaying knives…. All of these are pretty good for live streaming Elden Ring with some wacky, trashy, or no equipment challenge.

In terms of views that you can gain, this may very well be the S-Tier hit you’re looking for. Even the Sword of Ricardo Milos is there for crying out loud. It just can’t get more meme-worthy than this.
