Tears of the Kingdom best weapons
The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom best weapons are:
- Blue Moblin Pounder
- Farmer’s Pitchfork
- Dual Wield Hammers
- Long Stick
- Log Club
- Royal Guard’s Claymore
- Zonaite Sword
- Zonaite Spear
- Construct Bow
- Savage Lynel Bow
- Flame-Emitter Shield
- Master Sword
There is a lot for you to play around with but many weapons returning from Breath of the Wild, such as the Farmer’s Pitchfork are still incredibly strong, especially when taking into account the new Fuse ability.
Those weapons you can fuse early on that are good are the Dual Wield Hammers, Long Stick, Log Club, and Blue Moblin Pounder. They have great damage and can really make short work of enemies and bosses. These are even better with Fuse combinations, helping these beginner-friendly weapons more powerful. In fact, you can even Fuse them together since you’ll be coming across these frequently. While these won’t be quite so strong against the Tears of the Kingdom bosses as later game weapons, they’re certainly a strong starting place.
As for later game weapons, the Zonaite weapons often found in the Sky Islands like the Zonaite Sword and Spear are great choices, particularly thanks to their unique power. When Fused with Tears of the Kingdom Zonai devices, these weapons gain bonus attack power, making for some deadly and creative weapons.
The Royal Guard set found in Hyrule Castle are also strong, boasting strong attack power and gaining bonus power just before breaking. The Royal Guard’s Claymore is a two-handed sword that will knock your opponents around thanks to its heavy blade.
Perhaps most importantly, the Master Sword returns in Tears of the Kingdom. Link’s iconic sword that seals the darkness is sure to be a powerful and fan-favorite weapon, much like it was in Breath of the Wild. You can actually get it quite early in the game thanks to our guide on how to get the Tears of the Kingdom Master Sword.
With the ability to Fuse weapons into powerful combinations, there will be even more variety and room for experimentation as you get further into the game.
