The Assassin’s Creed series is not all about being stealthy and assassinating a target, leaving the room completely undetected and acting as nothing ever happened. Sometimes, you are going to have to get your hands dirty in order to get the job done and, that means that you are going to have to get hands-on with combat, person to person, without any stealth involved! There are a ton of weapons in every single entry but, regardless of the number of weapons found in the series, here is our list of the top 7 best weapons in the Assassin’s Creed games!
Starting off at number 7 are the Throwing Knives in Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood!
Even though these kinds of weapons may not seem that powerful or impressive at first, you should never really dismiss them, especially if there are a lot of enemies in the area that are hard to reach or kill stealthily! If you wind up the throw by holding the attack button as you throw the throwing knife, that pretty much guarantees a one-hit-kill that can prove to be quite valuable. Don’t think that you need to be confined to only shooting one throwing knife at a time though! You can actually use 3 at once, instantly killing those enemies that were being too much of a hassle for your mission!
At number 6 is the Pontiac Warclub in Assassin’s Creed III!
This is the kind of weapon that you are really going to want to use in combat, no matter the enemy! The Pontiac Warclub has the best finisher stats compared to any other weapon in the game, providing the opportunity to finish an enemy with just one hit! Yeah, talk about overpowered weapons. It definitely wasn’t enough to be a super powerful assassin that keeps taking out enemy after enemy as if it was nothing but, now, we also get a super-powerful weapon. I mean… we are definitely not complaining though!
At number 5 is the Master Assassin Knuckles in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate!
If you are an assassin, you’d most likely prefer to get a nice set of knives or some sleep darts, you know, something that would allow you to be stealthy and still take out enemies but, if you are Jacob then chances are you just want to get down and dirty and punch the hell out of your enemies! This weapon provides the maximum damage in combat and, it also has the added benefit of looking so damn cool on Jacob. We know that Evie Freye prefers a more stealthy and thought-out approach to dealing with enemies so, that is probably why this weapon is actually exclusive to Jacob and not his sibling!
At number 4 is the Gold Plated Pistol in Assassin’s Creed Unity!
Okay, besides just looking super cool (I mean, it’s literally a gold plated pistol) it’s also incredibly powerful! Not only is it the kind of weapon that deals a whole lot of damage but, it also has a fantastic rate of fire to go along with it, which is just priceless!
At number 3 is the Viking Sword in Assassin’s Creed Rogue!
In order to actually get this weapon, players have to finish the Viking Sword mission so they can unlock it and, upon acquiring this weapon, it will feel like you are slicing butter as you go from enemy to enemy! It is truly a very powerful sword that definitely demands respect, with stats such as speed of 4, damage of 4 and combo of 3, it can be deadly therefore, we only wish good luck to those that have to protect themselves from it!
At number 2 is the Tooth Of Sobek in Assassin’s Creed Origins!
Bayek is a pretty strong man so, naturally, he deserves to wield a pretty heavy weapon! In order to get this weapon, you must first defeat both shadows of the Scarab and only then are you truly able to enjoy it! Sure, aside from its fantastic looks, this weapon might not seem that impressive at first, however, it is only when you receive damage that you truly get to understand why it’s so valuable! If you take some damage, it will allow Bayek to instantly charge the enemy with a heavy attack, breaking their shields (and most likely their heads). You see, the damage actually shortens the time it takes to charge so, yeah, it is a pretty powerful weapon with great benefits!
Finally, at number 1 is the Hades Bow in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey!
This entry in the Assassin’s Creed series has a vast selection of weapons all with their unique set of abilities, stats and looks that really makes us grind for them, however, this one, in particular, is worth going after. This bow turns any basic arrows that you might have in your inventory into fire arrows that will set fire to your enemies! This is great for when you want enemies to take additional damage over time as they head towards you or, shooting oil barrels that will surround your enemies in the hell of Hades! Not only is it a very fiery weapon, but it also deals a great chunk of damage so, this should always be on every Malaka’s inventory!
There are so many weapons in every entry of this fantastic series that it would be impossible to add every single one on this list!
