I really liked Crimson Rector Sword as it is one of the best weapons for the early game, as it has a high base damage. Even without upgrading the weapon, you can easily defeat many enemies with it. The enemies in Lords of the Fallen hit extremely hard, even the starting enemies. The Umbral enemies, on the other hand, aren’t designed to hit hard. So they can be defeated by pretty much any weapon.

That being said, the normal enemies do have some poise, but Crimson Rector Sword can break it easily. You can also find the Thorned version of it, and that’s pretty good too. I have tried the sword myself, and it was a really good early-game experience.

You can even use it on The Congregator of Flesh. It can be found at the Skyreest Bridge; just go up the stairs and climb the ladder. Kill all the enemies there and grab the sword.

You can also get by defeating Crimson Rector, as it sometimes drops the weapon.

9- Rusty Cutter

If you want a great weapon very early, then Rusty Cutter is a good choice, as it is one of my personal favorites. I have it currently at +4, as I have been having pretty fun using it and killing the enemies. The Congregator of Flesh didn’t give me much trouble with the short sword, and it scales with two attributes: Strength and Inferno. What’s great about Rusty Cutter is that both of the attributes have a D+ scaling, which is pretty good for an early-game weapon.

I have more than 9 hours in Lords of the Fallen, and I think players should definitely try it. It is fast, does high damage, and can do more damage to enemies that are weak to fire. The requirements for wielding the weapon aren’t that high, either, as you just need 11 Strength and 11 Inferno, which can be reached pretty easily.

So, you won’t have to do any farming, and you can use a great weapon. Rusty Cutter can be found in a lava pool located on the opposite side of Pieta’s Boss Fight Arena.

8- Hammer of Holy Agony

I have tried different builds in Lords of the Fallen to understand it better, and when I had some points in Radiance, I tried Hammer of Holy Agony. On first look, it looks like a weapon similar to Rusty Cutter, as the scaling and the damage are pretty similar. However, Hammer of Holy Agony might be better than Rusty Cutter as it inflicts 80 Bleed, too, which is great for an early-game weapon.

The other things are pretty same, except instead of Fire Damage, it does Holy Damage, which is great on some bosses. As the weapon is better than Rusty Cutter, it has higher requirements, too. You would need 13 Strength and 13 Radiance to wield it, but it will be worth the experience.

If you are trying a radiance build, then make sure to try out the weapon, as it can do some high damage. There are other great radiance weapons, but it might take some to get them. So until you find them, you can play around with the Hammer of Holy Agony.

7- Angel’s Axe

Angel’s Axe Stats Value

Angel’s Axe (Screenshot Grab By eXputer)

If you want a Strength Weapon that is an absolute beast, Angel’s Axe is a great choice. When I found the weapon, I didn’t notice it, and it stayed in my inventory for quite a while. So, when I decided to change my main weapon, I noticed it and instantly decided to give it a try. You just need 22 Strength to wield Angel’s Axe. It won’t be much if you have chosen the Udirangr Warwolf.

If you have chosen a different class, then it might be a problem, as allocating these many points can be challenging in the early game. I am currently playing with the Hallowed Knight Class, and as I love exploring, I have been defeating many enemies on my way, so allocating points in Strength wasn’t an issue for me. The weapon has a C- scaling on Strength, which is great for an early-game weapon.

Also, the poise build-up from Angel’s Axe is insane, given that it is a Strength Base Weapon. So, make sure to give it a try.

6- Anvil Hammer

Anvil Hammer Stats Value
Type Grand Hammer
Weight 28.2
Physical 198 + 18
Holy 0
Fire 0

Best Weapons in Lords of the Fallen is not easy to determine, but Anvil Hammer is definitely on the list due to its massive damage. It is even better than the Angel’s Axe, and its requirements are low, too. You just need 18 Strength and 8 Agility, which you will have by default, and you will be able to wield it.

If you have chosen the strength-based class Udirangr Warwolf, then there won’t be any issue as you would just need two more points in Strength. The weapon doesn’t have any status effect on it, but that’s alright. It is just meant to do some high damage. I would not recommend you to use it if you are a beginner, as the weapon is heavy. Instead, you should take your time to master it so you can use it better. 

You would need to do some big swings and poise through the enemy’s attack, which might not be the ideal option. So, the best way to use Anvil Hammer is to time the strikes according to your opponent’s movement.

5- Righteous Pulveriser

Righteous Pulveriser Stats Value
Type Grand Hammer
Weight 32.6
Physical 83 + 9

Bleed 100

Most best weapons I found early in Lords of the Fallen are pretty much based on the Strength attribute, and Righteous Pulveriser is one of them. While you find many great weapons early on, Lords of the Fallen punishes you by the requirements to wield the weapon, which are very high for some. That can be solved by doing some exploration, but the level structure is really messed up. 

There are some farming spots in the early game as you can just defeat some Ardent Penitent. Just defeating a few will be enough for at least one level-up. Righteous Pulveriser requires 20 Strength and 26 Radiance. Also, it has a D scaling on Strength and a C- scaling on Radiance. Also, the weapon inflicts Bleed on enemies, so it is a great strength weapon to choose.

The other problem, along with the stat requirement, is the way to handle the weapon. It is pretty hard to handle a heavy weapon, and it can also limit your rolling. So, choose your weapon type and equipment wisely. 

4- Devotion’s Might

Devotion’s Might Stats Value
Type Grand Hammer
Weight 30.9 
Physical 83 + 15
Holy 83 + 0
Fire 0
Wither 0
Smite 100
Devotion’s Might (Screenshot Captured By Me)

If you want to try a weapon that can make your game easy, then Devotion’s Might is a must-try weapon. I was shocked by how good the weapon is as it has high poise damage along with high damage. If you get the weapon, you will most probably one-shot most of the normal enemies in-game. As you can hit multiple enemies with a single swing, you won’t have much trouble farming Vigor.

Again, the weapon has a stat requirement problem, which can be a problem. You would need 28 Strength and 28 Radiance to just wield the weapon. So, it can be a little annoying to reach such a high level in order to wield Devotion’s Might. If you don’t want to farm, then just continue with your progress, and eventually, you will reach the level to wield it.

Apart from the aforementioned problem, the weapon is great, and it has a C scaling on both STR and RAD.

3- Pieta’s Sword

Smite 100

Pieta is a boss in Lords of the Fallen that you will have to beat pretty early in-game. The boss fight isn’t that hard, as you can just parry her attacks or dodge them as her attacks have delays. That being said, when you defeat her, you will get a remembrance, which can be used to get her weapon. Pieta’s Sword is one of the best weapons in Lords of the Fallen. If you went for the Radiance build, then I would recommend you get it as soon as possible.

The only annoying part of getting the weapon is collecting Umbral Scourings. They can be obtained by beating bosses or by just using Soulflay with your lamp on the memories. It is a great weapon that deals holy damage and builds up smite on enemies.  Smite is a pretty great status effect that can cause an enemy to explode, so make sure to give Pieta’s Sword a try.

2- Faithful Bludgeon

 Faithful Bludgeon Stats Value
Type Grand Hammer
Weight 34.4 
Physical 168 + 32
Holy 0
Fire 0
Wither 0
Burn 100

I think Faithful Bludgeon is the second-best weapon in Lords of the Fallen that can just destroy enemies. The good thing about the weapon is that it doesn’t have crazy stat requirements. You would only need 28 Strength. Once you have 28 Strength, you will be able to wield Faithful Bludgeon and destroy most of the enemies in the early game.

You should keep the weight in mind as the weapon has 34.4 Weight, which is extremely high. So, on first look, it seems like a weapon that is based on pure physical damage and can demolish the enemies. However, it inflicts Burn on the enemies, which just makes it a must-try weapon. I had tried the weapon already when I was trying the Urdirangr Warwolf class, and it was an absolute beast.

I would definitely recommend you to out the weapon as finding it is not that hard, too, plus it is worth the effort.

1- Bloody Glory

Bloody Glory Stats Value
Type Grand Sword
Weight 35.1
Physical 70 + 5
Holy 70
Fire 0
Wither 0
Bleed 300
Bloody Glory (Image Captured By Me)

The final weapon on my list is the Bloody Glory, and it is the best weapon I could find in the early area of Lords of the Fallen. While the weapon can be found early, it sure is viable in the late game, too. It is a beast that can destroy many enemies. That being said, I would not recommend you to try out Bloody Glory in the early game, as the stats requirements are insane, and I can understand why.

It requires 20 Strength, 30 Agility, and 32 Radiance, which is just massive. While the requirements are massive, I think the weapon is worth it, not because of its good damage. The 300 Bleed Build-Up is what impressed me the most. With Bloody Glory, you will instantly inflict blood loss on enemies, which is insane. With the right gear and the right buffs, you can defeat many bosses with the weapon. 

Which Is The Best Weapon In Lords of the Fallen – My Take

Best Weapon in Lords of the Fallen (Image Taken By Me)

With my experience so far, I think the best weapon in Lord of the Fallen is arguably the Bloody Glory.

It can be found pretty early, and as it is a beast, it is ranked at number 1 on my list. I am planning to make it my main weapon, so if you would want to learn more about the weapon, you can comment about it. If you don’t want to use Bloody Glory, then there are many other great weapons I have ranked in the list. One of my personal favorites is the Rusty Cutter, which can be found pretty early.

My In-Game Hours

That’s almost everything you would want to know about the best weapon to find in Lords of the Fallen. As there hasn’t been much time passed since it was released, I mentioned the weapons that were found earlier. Some weapons might not be meant to be wielded in the early areas as their requirements are high. I would recommend you try any of the ten weapons I have listed in my guide.

While you are at it, you should also check out the guide on Best Attributes for each class in Lords of the Fallen so you can allocate the points better. After that, make sure to read the guide on How to Parry in Lords of the Fallen. Don’t forget to visit the page of the best DPS class to select the highest damage-dealing class.
