V Rising features seven different weapon categories, 6 of which are melee and 1 which is ranged. These are the sword, axe, spear, slashers, reaper, mace, and crossbow. However, whether you’re purely focusing on PVE or PVP, you need to pick your weapon to effectively deal with any situation.
That said, if you are to ask me which is the best weapon in V Rising, that would be the sword. The reason is simple: it has a fast attack speed and its abilities are great for both dodging and chasing enemies.
While several weapons like the spear can do excellent as well, it does lack the mobility that the sword has.
Now, if you’re looking for the best weapons to use for either PVP or PVE, then this tier list is for you.
Best Weapons to Use | Weapons Tier List in V Rising
As mentioned, each weapon type varies in terms of damage and weapon skills. The sword being the best weapon is just a personal opinion, so feel free to pick a weapon that suits your playstyle. Still, here’s how I would rank them:
S Tier – Sword
The sword has a high attack speed as well as powerful skills which makes it an excellent all-rounder. It’s perfect for builds that focus on critical strikes since they can perform several attacks per second.
Also, its Shockwave skill can help you dodge enemy attacks just in case your dash is unavailable. It can also deal heavy damage to your targets.
A Tier – Spear, Axe, Mace
The spear could have been the best weapon I could recommend if not for its lack of AOE. Compared to the sword, the spear has no wide arcing hitbox, meaning you can only target enemies that are standing in a straight line in front of you. It does have a fast attack speed and even burst damage with its skills to make up for that.
Meanwhile, the axe has decent damage and attack speed, alongside some really powerful skills. The X-Strike is pretty good for crowd control as it can stun enemies hit by the two whirling axes. However, its overall DPS isn’t as good as both the spear and the sword.
Lastly, there’s the mace which is by far the hardest-hitting weapon type in the game. The only problem is that it has a slow attack speed, so its DPS falls short compared to the above weapons. It does have a gap-closing ability as well as an AOE attack that can stun enemies for a few seconds.
B Tier – Reaper and Slasher
In B Tier are the reaper and the slasher. Both are polar opposites of each other. The reaper has a slow attack speed in exchange for huge damage while the slasher has low damage but makes up for it with its fast attack speed.
However, their skills aren’t as great as the ones mentioned above. the reaper’s Tendon Swing works pretty much like that of the mace’s AOE skill, but its Howling Reaper skill can be a pain in the ass to land, especially in PVP.
On the other hand, the slasher features the Camouflage skill which allows you to go invisible for a few weapons as well as the Elusive Strike which is great for both dealing damage and dodging attacks.
While they might sound amazing, the slasher’s overall damage output just isn’t up to par with the higher-tier weapons.
C Tier – Crossbow
There’s a reason why the crossbow belongs to the lowest tier – it’s not meant to be used as your main weapon. Instead, think of it as a backup weapon that you can use in certain situations. Its slow reload speed and mediocre damage aren’t something to write home about.
However, its Snapshot skill can be useful for interrupting enemy spells, especially in PVP. Still, I don’t recommend using it as your main weapon in combat.
Fastest Easy Ways To Unlock BUSO HAKI V3 In Pixel Piece
Make it fast and easy by reading this guide!
Some of us who enjoy playing video games are also fans of anime like Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece, and they’re very popular right now because they not only have a TV show but are also featured in various games using mods and occasionally fan-made games. I know that some of you haven’t yet acquired the Buso Haki, but if you want to do so much faster than everyone else, then this guide is just for you.
Buso Haki V3
For those who are new to the game and are unaware of this process, you must wait until nighttime (in-game) because you’ll be entering the Vaill Island, where you must first reach Level 70+ because you won’t likely survive if you don’t level up. You’ll also need $5000 in order to activate a quest from an NPC in that island.
So when you get to Valli Island, you’ll run into an NPC wearing a hat who will give you a mission that requires you to pay $5000. Once you do so, a new objective with the words “Battle 4 Ancient Gorilla of 0/3” appears up on the bottom right of your screen. At that point, you must defeat the Gorilla Boss.
The boss gorilla must be found and defeated three times; he deals a lot of damage when he pounds the ground and hits you with his shockwave fist, thus having teammates who are at the same level as you or who are strong enough to defeat the gorilla will actually speed up the battle.
It is actually recommended to find the respawn point every so often to make your life easier. When you get to the part where the gorilla is, you need to do this so that when you die, you won’t have to go to a random island and it will be a hassle to navigate through the world again just to find one island and beat the Gorilla boss.
The Quest pop-up that was mentioned to you earlier on screen states that you should defeat the Gorilla boss at least three times. Once you defeat the Gorilla boss, you will level up, receive an item called “Soul of Armament,” and learn the skill Armament Haki.
When the Gorilla boss dies, it will take some time for him to respawn, and you will need to defeat him again until you finally defeat him on the third try.
Now that we have defeated the gorilla boss, let’s discuss the advantages of wearing these hakis. The Haki V1 will increase your melee/sword M1 damage by +6 and give you the ability to hit Logia users.
However, 50,000 Haki Mastery points are required to upgrade your Haki to V2. What does V2 offer in terms of benefits? You receive +9 more melee/sword damage than the Haki V1 with it.
And ultimately, of course, in order to truly unlock Buso Haki V3, you actually need 200,000 Haki Mastery points. The advantages of possessing this are that it increases your melee/sword damage by +14 compared to Haki V2, making it currently the strongest in the game.
It takes a lot of grinding to get to the 200,000 Haki point need, but there is an easier way to farm the points for V3. To do this, make sure you have reached Level 100; if not, continuing farming in the world you are currently in until you are powerful enough to reach the island where we’re going to farm the points faster.
You must travel to Syrup Island, which is between Vaill Island’s northeast and east. Once there, you’ll see a lot of players grinding against NPCs to gain Haki Mastery points more quickly.
You may have heard that you should grind straight to Arlo Park, but doing so will only slow you down because the NPCs there are much tougher than those in Syrup Island.
However, if you want to go for it and you have pals who can fight with the NPCs in Arlo Park, feel free to do so.
I hope this was of some help. A tremendous thank you to Nikkolapz for going over each of these details and explaining them so thoroughly. For better understanding check out his video:
