Minecraft Dungeons does one thing that Minecraft doesn’t: it offers more variety. Minecraft Dungeons players have access to more weapons and armor than the base game offers.
Instead of just swords, axes, crossbows, and bows, there are several other options for the offensive side of the game.
With that in mind, there is a range of quality in these options. Some are naturally better than others.

The best weapons in Minecraft Dungeons
5) Diamond Sword
The diamond sword is one of the most iconic weapons in the game, which is reflected in the game. It’s a great weapon, one of the best melee weapons in the game.
At a power level of 108, the sword can max out at 1,904 damage, which is amazing. It can be purchased from a few merchants or found at these three tiers:
- creeper wood
- spooky crypt
- pumpkin pastures
4) Diamond Pickaxe
This unique weapon is a classic in the base game, where it is not used as a weapon at all. It would be a waste to use it that way. This version of the diamond pickaxe is much stronger and gives artisans more emeralds.
This makes it a solid option for leveling up since Emeralds can be exchanged for better gear, weapons, or artifacts at the Merchant’s Stand.
3) Gravity Hammer
Unique weapons tend to be the best in the game, and this particular unique weapon has high power, low speed, and high range. This basically means that there is only one real downside: the lack of speed.
Gravity Hammer increases melee damage and brings enemies closer. This makes them easier to attack and the weapon also has a good splash. Overall, Minecraft Dungeons players can do a lot worse than the Hammer of Gravity.
2) Burial Scourge
All unique weapons provide some bonus ability. Grave Bane’s unique ability basically works like Smite in Minecraft. It deals more damage to undead mobs like zombies and skeletons.
Both of these weapons are quite common, so this weapon is useful more often than other unique weapons. It also has good range for a melee weapon, which adds to its quality.
1) Cursed Ax
This ax possesses the ability to give players spin attacks. With it, monsters that have been defeated will explode and potentially deal damage to nearby monsters. It has more range than the average melee weapon, which is useful.
In Minecraft Dungeons, axes are usually the strongest weapons, so this is a great choice.
