Sword of Yu the Great is a very versatile weapon that is optimal for close-to-medium range combat with how it strikes a balance between speed, damage, and range.

  1. Chivalrous Swordsman Dual Swords

Dual Swords were a fan-favourite class of weapons in the Nioh series, and gladly, they’ve made a triumphant return to Wo Long, the Chivalrous Swordsman Dual Swords currently being one of the best in this class.

  1. White Wooden Cudgel

White Wooden Cudgel initially comes off as a basic stave made of wood but in reality, it is one of the best staves in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty. It is a very well-rounded staff that’s capable of dealing consistent damage and executing unavoidable counters if you’re into timely parries. It can be obtained through multiple avenues, but the game naturally rewards it to you after completing the ‘The Valorous Trio’ mission.

  1. Cavalry Javelin

The Cavalry Javelin is one of the best spears in Wo Long. This weapon is perfect for anyone who prefers to not get up close to the enemy but instead likes to keep their distance while landing precise, high-damage thrust attacks. The Cavalry Javelin can be obtained in eight different ways in Wo Long, including the one where the game rewards you with it after the ‘Darkness Over the Hanshui River’ mission.

  1. Invictus Serpent Spear

The Invictus Serpent Spear is one of the more prominent slashing spears in the game. As the name implies, slashing spears can do both slash attacks and thrust attacks, usually thanks to the curvature at the end of the pointy tip. So, if you like spears but want to get more aggressive with highly variable combos, then give the Invictus Serpent Spear a shot! This weapon can be obtained from Zhang Fei after leveling him up to Sworn Brother.

  1. Tiger Fang Dual Halberds

Dual Halberds are a very rare occurrence in Souls-like, yet Team Ninja have really made them shine in their latest title, particularly with the Tiger Fang Dual Halberds. This weapon greatly synergizes with anyone looking for a quick, combo-filled playstyle where always being on the move with adrenaline pumping is the key. Aside from reaching Sworn Brother status with Sun Ce, this weapon is also found in the ‘Like Father, Like Son’ mission.

  1. Podao

The Podao is a curved sabre that is much better at crowd control, although similar to your typical sabre. This is made possible due to its curvature that allows for horizontal sweeping at the expense of forward range – if that’s your cup of tea, then be sure to try this weapon out! It can be obtained from a myriad of different missions, such as ‘Two Chivalrous Heroes’ and ‘The Valley of the Crying Wraiths.’
