Weapons are damage-dealing equipment in Death's Gambit. Each weapon features a unique moveset to their weapon type. Weapon categories grant specific abilities to the player when equipped.

The player character can equip two weapons, one in each weapon slot. Each weapon is used ‘one at time’ and not ‘one in each hand’. Unlike other games, you do not need to sacrifice a weapon slot for a shield, and you will always have a shield available to you. One exception is are the daggers, which only takes up one weapon slot while wielding a dagger in each hand.

Weapons can be upgraded +1 to +10 through the use of Soul Stones and Immortalite.

      solar bow can be obtained without the air dodge. A well timed swing as you're falling will land you on top of the item.

        There is a bug that when you keep shooting arrows while you have Soul Arrows and Multi-shot active near 0 soul energy, your rate of fire increases by an enormous amount. Doing incredible dps.

          Hello, I took the time to take a comprehensive comparisson on the weapons provided. Most important: if you did tests yourself then please prove me wrong. Every test was done with same stats across, aswell as same upgrade level. Speeds were stopped manually with a stopwatch: 10 times per weapon, per combo. Forward momentum was not taken into account for the range tests, as that would give out false conclusions (forward momentum =/= range). Movesets and coverage were based on a generall usefullness, single enemy aswell as multiple enemies. Please enjoy. If you have questions, just ask.

            Am the only one who thinks the halberd should have scaled with both strength and finesse, I mean it has the req for both and it would make a quality build actually worth it.
