Elden Ring Weapon Tier List | All Elden Ring Weapons, Ranked

Mirror mirror on the wall, what's the best weapon of them all?

by Amitesh Dhar

While builds are an integral part of a game like Elden Ring, weapons are important as well. It’s not impossible to beat the game without weapons as several users have already demonstrated. But doing so is a painful task, and might take a considerable amount of time because you’ll be heading into fights with a considerable disadvantage by your side.

The sheer number of weapons that the game has to offer can be intimidating at times. And it might be difficult to distinguish which weapon is good and which isn’t. Keeping that in mind, here’s our list of weapons, ranked in order of their efficiency in Elden Ring.
