Dauntless Best Weapons - The Best Dauntless Weapons and Damage Stats

This is our guide to the best Dauntless weapons, as well as a list of all the weapon damage stats.

Discovering which are the best Dauntless weapons in the entire game is going to take a lot of time and effort. Thankfully with this Dauntless best weapons guide, we can easily guide you through all the Dauntless weapons that you should be trying to get your hands on as soon as possible.

Dauntless Best Weapons

Firstly, we'll provide you with our list of the best Dauntless weapons you can possibly obtain in the game. If you'd rather a list of all the Dauntless weapons in the entire game, then skip down to the table of contents further below.

  • Stalker's Strike
  • Turmoil of Boreus
  • Molten Edict
  • Valomyr's Revenge

Dauntless Best Sword - Stalker's Strike

Dealing 100 with added 550 power, on top of 80 Umbral damage is powerful enough, without the added bonus of generating a Shadow Orb which increases damage dealt by 2.5% for 5 seconds.

Dauntless Best Hammer - Turmoil of Boreus

This weapon, which comes as either an axe or a hammer, has base damage of 100 plus 550 power, as well as 80 Frost damage. The charge attacks from the axe will also generate frost sprites, which cause your next attack to deal 50 bonus damage, plus minor Frost damage.

Dauntless Best Axe - Molten Edict

This is actually a special Exotic axe, which deals 100 damage, on top of a 550 power rating, with 80 Blaze damage added on top. This weapon replaces all hammer blasts with fireball effects, which deal bonus Blaze damage.

Dauntless Best Chain Blades - Valomyr's Revenge

Dealing 100 damage with a power rating of 550, with added 80 Radiant damage. Once you've charged up an attack, your next strike will deal 550 bonus Radiant damage.

Dauntless Weapons List

Below, we'll be delving into depth on all the Dauntless weapons available to you. Each type of weapon in the game has its strengths and weaknesses going up against Behemoths. But there's more than just one of each particular Dauntless weapon, so in the tables under each section, we'll be listing out the stats for each sword, axe, hammer, and more.

Dauntless Swords

Swords are by far and away the most balanced Dauntless weapons. They offer a middle ground on both strength and speed, essential for slayers that want to get up close and in the face of Behemoths, while also being able to retreat to safety at a moment's notice.

Dauntless Axes

The sword might have been a quicker weapon, but the axe weapons in Dauntless sacrifice this for pure hitting power. You've really got to time your strikes correctly with the axe, as you can stun and even cut the tails off larger monsters with a single charged up attack.

Dauntless Chain Blades

Like the sword, the chain blades combine speed and strength for some devastating results. The unique move of the chain blades are phase dashes, where you rapidly move forward and backward in the blink of an eye, being invulnerable to monster attacks. Combined with some rapid attacks in multiple succession, the chain blades can be devastating.

Dauntless Repeaters

Added towards the end of Dauntless being in the early access stage of development, the Ostian Repeaters are the only true ranged weapon in Dauntless. While you can stand back in relative comfort and pelt a Behemoth from afar, the repeaters also offer one charged attack, which consumes shots to deliver one huge area of effect attack.

Dauntless Hammers

The hammers of Dauntless aren't entirely unlike the axes, sacrificing speed and precision for stopping power. With the hammer though, you've actually got a cannon that can fire out shells towards a monster. You can even use these shells as a mount to get into battle quickly, or charge them up to deal some huge damage on a monster.

Dauntless War Pikes

Finally, there's the war pikes of Dauntless. This weapon is something pretty spectacular to witness in action, flailing around the head of the slayer to strike monsters in quick succession with fiery attacks. Through dealing out attacks in close quarters, the war pikes can be charged up, to let loose with one massive ranged attack that can immediately stun any Behemoths caught in its path.
