Minecraft Dungeons weapons guide: every melee and ranged weapon listed

All the weapon stats

The first DLC pack for Minecraft Dungeons is now out and it adds several new base weapons. There are a huge number of weapons in the game, each one with different power levels, base speed, and area of attack.

This Minecraft Dungeons weapons guide will list all of the melee weapons and ranged weapons in the game. Several new weapons were introduced in the Jungle Awakens DLC: the whip, battlestaff, katana, and the dual crossbows.

All of the weapon types are found in set levels, so have a look at our Minecraft Dungeons secret levels guide for a full loot table for every weapon. If you just want the best builds, you can find them in our Minecraft Dungeons best builds guide.

Every melee and ranged weapon has a base rating for power, speed, and area. These will be shown in the base weapons table on a five star scale. As damage scales up with the weapon's level, this will not be displayed.

We will not be discussing enchantments, since they have their own There is also the full list of accompanying enchantments, in our Minecraft Dungeons enchantments list and are universal.

Unique weapons have the same base stats as their regular forms. They've been separated into their own lists that include all the perks that unique weapons have, as well as which base weapon the unique weapons are based on.
