What are the best weapons in AC Odyssey? This Top 10 Best Legendary Weapons In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey counts down our favorite top 10 Legendary weapons featuring Swords, Bows, Heavy Blades, and everything in between.
AC Odyssey is filled with dozens of unique and powerful legendary weapons and legendary armor, but what’s the best? Check out our list below for what we feel are the best weapons in the game. If you want to grab any of these bad boys for yourself, be sure to check out our legendary weapons guide for how to unlock each one.
Daggers Of Kronus
While not a dagger fan myself, the potential of the Daggers of Kronus is unmatched. 13% additional warrior damage with a 12% increase on dagger damage is a deadly combination in itself but stack on a huge +40% damage from behind. It’s an assassination fans best friend, and when stacked with abilities that let you slow time and attack from the rear, the damage output is terrifying.
Rod Of Asklepios
More of an honorable mention than a worthy contender. The Rod of Asklepios is one of the only legendary staff weapons we encountered on our odyssey. Primarily stacking Assassins Damage by +15% and an additional 15% Adrenaline per Hit may make it seem appealing to Assassin’s looking to strike from the shadows, but its legendary engraving entirely removes your ability to critical hit. While it does stack a bit more damage, it’s probably not the best weapon for staff enthusiasts.
Mallet Of Everlasting Flame
Huge increase to warrior damage? Check. Huge boost to fire damage? Check. Gives every single swing the flames of hell itself as a backup? Hades would be proud. This powerful Heavy Blunt imbues every single swing with fire damage, making it a powerful ally in the goal to build the ultimate fire attacks.
A Legendary Bow that improves Warrior Damage may not seem like an obvious choice for Hunter fans but the additional fire damage is fantastic when coupled with this weapons legendary engraving. All basic arrows become fire arrows. Raining down death from afar in a blaze of glory is one thing, combining basic fire arrows with an exciting mixture of the hunter abilities and you’ve got a recipe for success right here.
The Paris Bow may not be the most outstanding weapon in the game but it has one perk above all others, a +20% damage increase with Ghost Arrows of Artemis ability. This special hunter ability allows you to shoot enemies through walls. Combine this perk with increased headshot damage and additional hunter damage and you can bring an entire fort to its knees without ever entering the premises.
Herakles’s Bow is another strange combination of Warrior Damage and Hunter Charged Bow Shot Damage, but that’s not why this weapon has entered our top 10 list of legendary weapons in AC Odyssey. Once unlocked you can add the +20% Damage with Bull Rush Ability to other weapons and armor, making the Herakle’s Bow the ultimate target when attempting to build a powerful hunter build. 220k damage with a single Bull Rush strike? Can’t argue with those numbers.
A utility weapon at best but still, one of the best options in the game. A huge bonus to Hunter Damage and damage against animals, this is the perfect weapon for hunting legendary beasts in the world of AC Odyssey. Coupled with the unique bonus to health and damage for tamed beast, Pandoras Kopis is truly mans best friend.
Xiphos Of Peleus
Typically assassins tend to lean more towards daggers but not if you get a glance at the Xiphos of Peleus’ abilities. Increased assassin damage, more adrenaline per crit and a +20% Damage to Rush Assassination Ability – an ability that can chain together and attack 4 different enemies with assassin damage. If you’re one to strike from the shadows, you can’t go wrong with this weapon.
Polyphemos Cyclops Bludgeon
While the Minotaurs Labrys outshines the Polyphemos Cyclops Bludgeon in almost every way imaginable, there’s a single engraving that stands out above all others. The Polyphemos Cyclops Bludgeon gives you the opportunity to stack a +25% damage on elites and bosses engraving across multiple items. This is absolutely fantastic for taking outs elites and bosses as quickly as you would their weaker counterparts.
Taking our coveted #1 spot is the ridiculously powerful, Minotaur’s Labrys. A warriors dream, stacking an additional 13% Warrior Damage alongside a staggering +20% Crit Damage, the Minotaur’s Labrys is a total monster without its legendary engraving. Chuck on that -1 Adrenaline Cost for Overpower Abilities and you’ve got one of the best warrior weapons in the entire game.
