Want the best weapon in AC Origins? This is a Top 5 – Best Weapons In Assassin’s Creed Origins where we highlight 5 of the best weapons we’ve discovered in Assassin’s Creed Origins. Everything from bows of gods to blades blessed by mysterious magical power.
Best Weapons In Assassins Creed Origins
Assassin’s Creed Origins features dozens of unique and powerful weapons. Thanks to the ability to upgrade weapons to your current level, you can quite easily stick with a single blade the entire game. But where’s the fun in that? There are so many different styles and different weapons to choose from. Experimenting with different ways to tear apart your enemies is half the fun.
Trophy Hunter (Predator Bow)
The Predator Bow. Ancient Egypt’s answer to a sniper rifle. While questionable at close range, nothing matches the Predator Bow for long range kills. And what do long range kills involve? Stealth. Thankfully the Trophy Hunter comes complete with a level 2 Stealth Damage buff alongside a level 3 Critical Hit Damage – those headshots do a LOT of damage. Take that long range headshot up high for the Elevation Multiplier and you’ll one hit nearly anything that enters your sights.
Golden Wolf (Regular Sword)
The Golden Wolf may not look like much, and it’s not as hard to get as some of the best weapons in Assassin’s Creed Origins but boy does it pack a punch. This thing is a critting machine. You crit for days. You crit so much that critting no longer feels like a special proc, instead it’s just the norm. A max level Critical Hit Rate buff with a level 2 Critical Hit Damage buff is enough to clear waves of enemies without breaking a sweat but in case it does get a little tough – you can get health back from the Health on Kill perk.
Neith (Light Bow)
Have you ever used a Light Bow? They fire quick as hell right? Well, imagine that but faster. Much faster. The bow of the Goddess of War herself. Neith is arguably the greatest Light Bow in the game with an insane level 3 Rate of Fire perk, a level 1 Bleeding on Hit perk and Extra Arrow. Now, if you’re firing 5 arrows a second at a target, that Bleeding on Hit may as well be max level.
Okay, so it’s not exactly a weapon but it looks badass as hell and there’s not enough decent shields for a top 5. This shield not only impresses visually, but it’s an incredible aid in combat too. It has max level Ranged Resistance and level 3 Damage Absorption Rate, with the added bonus of causing enemies to bleed when an attack is blocked. Now, if it can make you bleed to death, that has to count as a weapon. Right?
Hepzefa’s Sword (Regular Sword)
What? It’s on fire. That’s a no-brainer. This magical sword is imbued by the gods. A level 3 Critical Hit Rate bonus with level 2 Adrenaline on Hurt are pretty awesome by themselves, but add a bit of spice and you’ve got the best weapon in Assassin’s Creed Origins. Well, in my opinion at least. Yes, it’s always on fire and yes, it sets enemies on fire.
