You unlock new enchantments, gear, and weapons by completing quests in Minecraft Dungeons. Only the most powerful weapons in Minecraft Dungeons can help you defeat endgame bosses and here is a list of the best weapons.
Aside from its pixelated graphics, Minecraft Dungeons doesn’t share many similarities with the original sandbox game. Some concepts like enchantments also exist in the dungeon-crawler, but the way players are supposed to use them is quite different.
This also applies to weapons. Unlike Minecraft, there are hundreds of unique weapons in Minecraft Dungeons. They can be used for melee or ranged combat and different challenges require you to switch between these weapon types. Therefore, it is natural to be perplexed as to which weapons to use.
This list of the best weapons in Minecraft Dungeons will clarify which weapon you should use to defeat mobs, tanky bosses, and other unique enemies.
Best Melee Weapons in Minecraft Dungeons
Melee weapons in Minecraft Dungeons are great for close combat. They don’t need ammo, but being close to enemies also means you need to have a strong defense. Melee weapons should help you take out groups of enemies quickly and depending on these conditions the best options are:
The Whispering Spear is a unique weapon in Minecraft Dungeons that rewards players with long range and a special double-hit ability. It deals massive damage and the relatively low attack speed shouldn’t be a deal breaker unless it gets in the way of your playstyle.
Fighter’s Bindings isn’t the most versatile weapon in Minecraft Dungeons, but it’s easily one of the best for defeating swarms of enemies. The attack speed offered by this glove is outrageously good and makes up for the low damage.
Cursed Ax is one of the best damage-dealing melee weapons in Minecraft Dungeons. On top of that, whenever a mob dies from this axe, it explodes and deals damage to nearby enemies.
The spin attack you can perform through the cursed ax is also powerful, and overall you get tons of AoE damage with it.
Melee weapons in Minecraft Dungeons aren’t great for maintaining your health unless you have the Heartsealer. This unique weapon takes health from enemies with each hit and heals you.
The attack speed is definitely very slow, but the high damage and healing ability makes up for that. Lastly, this sword fends off mobs and makes things really easy.
Scourge of the Graves
Another unique weapon with one of the highest damage in Minecraft Dungeons is Grave Bane. In addition to the ferocious DPS, the AoE provided by this polearm is brilliant and you won’t have a hard time taking on groups of enemies.
Given the abundance of undead enemies in Minecraft Dungeons, Grave Bane’s built-in Smiting enchantment is also highly desirable.
Hammer of Gravity in Minecraft Dungeons makes battling swarms of enemies a walk in the park. Power and area damage are high enough to take out multiple mobs at once and the only downside is attack speed.
The Splash Attack increases the range of the Hammer of Gravity and is a must-have melee weapon in the game.
Best ranged weapons in Minecraft Dungeons
Ranged weapons in Minecraft Dungeons are safer, but they require ammo. Lack of ammo makes these weapons useless, but with proper planning, you can easily defeat Redstone Golem with them.
Here are the best ranged weapons in Minecraft Dungeons:
The Harp Crossbow in Minecraft Dungeons fires five projectiles at once and deals immense damage with each shot. As a result, he can replicate a melee weapon with high AoE damage. You won’t get any extra effects from this bow, but since it makes fighting swarms easier, we’ve put it on this list.
Elite Mighty Bow
As the name suggests, the Elite Power Bow in Minecraft Dungeons has high damage and even higher charged attack damage. This allows you to use it as a sniper. If you want to shoot enemies from a safe distance, the Elite Power Bow should be your weapon of choice.
If you enjoy playing Minecraft Dungeons with your friends, equipping the Imploding Crossbow is a brilliant strategy. Instead of pushing mobs back, this bow brings them closer together and teammates with melee weapons can easily get the most out of it.
Along with these tactical advantages, the Imploding Crossbow deals massive amounts of damage, so putting it on this list was a no-brainer.
Arc of Lost Souls
Bow of Lost Souls in Minecraft Dungeons has nearly perfectly balanced Power, Speed, and Ammo stats, but it mostly excels at Soul Gathering. You need souls to power artifacts and this is arguably the best soul harvester weapon in the game.
Standard shots from a Bow of Lost Souls have a +2 Soul Gathering effect. Additionally, the weapon can perform multiple shots and each of these shots has the same effect. This explains why this bow is so good at collecting souls.
These are some of the best and most used weapons in Minecraft Dungeons. We’ll be sure to update this list with the latest trends, but until then you can find out how to get a cape in Minecraft, how to craft a map, and how to craft a blast furnace.
