Chivalry 2 crashed into the scene like a 500-pound boulder fired from a catapult. In this medieval PvP hack-and-slasher, there areYou choose from one of four classes (and three subclasses each) with unlockable weapons and tools up for grabs. But which are the best?

Finding the right mix of weapon and warrior can be the difference between winning the day and getting broken on the battlefield. Here are the best Chivalry 2 weapons for each class.

Best weapons for every class in Chivalry 2


The Archer is perhaps the simplest class. This encompasses long-range fighters from Chivalry 2.

Characters in this class will have small one-handed melee weapons, but they’re only really effective if they’re able to sit up and take out enemies from afar.

The long arc

  • Subclass: Crossbowman
    • Faster clearance, release and recovery
    • Strong against distant targets
    • Weak against all melee classes

Longbow damage, only usable by the Longbowman subclass, is moderate, assuming you take the time to fire it all the way.

Arrows can be notched while moving, a big advantage over the crossbow, which requires you to stand still while reloading.

The rate of fire and mobility allow you to quickly attack enemies, turning the tide for your allies in many skirmishes.

The javelin

  • Subclass: Tirailleur
    • Fast coiling, increased stab damage and bonus shield damage
    • Strong against protected enemies
    • Weak against knights

Javelins are where melee and ranged weapon circles meet. They are effective in direct combat, but can also be thrown for excellent damage.

Either way, you have pockets full of javelins and can throw five before you need to restock. A shield in your hand provides an extra layer of protection, resulting in the only true hybrid class of Chivalry 2.

Vanguard naturally has greater speed and less health than other melee classes.

As a result, Vanguards have the ability to dictate the spectrum of battles, rushing in and out of range of ground attacks and evading retaliation, the best Vanguard weapons taking advantage.


  • Subclass: Devastating
    • High damage with slow animation
    • Strong against the knights, the infantry
    • Weak against Archers

The Maul is an extreme damage weapon and can often crush enemies with one hit. This weapon is unique to the Devastator subclass and won’t unlock until your Vanguard has reached level 15.

The speed is slow and the range is good, but not great. It’s a weapon all about power.

Skillful use requires players to keep enemies in the middle, close enough to strike a blow, but not close enough for fast, close-range weapons to make contact.

It’s not always easy, but it rewards players with substantial knockout power.


  • Subclass: Raider
    • Increased speed and damage for slash attacks
    • Strong against groups of enemies
    • Weak against protected enemies

If there is a “meta” weapon in Chivalry 2, this is the Messer. This two-handed sword has one of the best ranges in the game, surprising speed, and a damage buff for horizontal attacks.

The result is one of the few weapons in the game that can effectively keep entire groups of enemies at bay, and power users can rack up an impressive number of kills.

He also has a leaping strike that covers a significant distance and hits with devastating power. It is without a doubt one of the best weapons in the game.

The footman represents the basic personnel of the medieval army. They are balanced characters with moderate stats and can be used in any situation.

Smart players create opportunities for advantageous situations and confrontations. Good infantry will outsmart heavy attackers and dominate light enemies, provided they are using the right tools for the job.


  • Subclass: Poleman
    • Increased speed and damage for pushing attacks
    • Strong against the knights and the vanguard
    • Weak against Archers

The spear, used by the Poleman subclass, has the longest range in the game and increased damage for pushing attacks. Using a spear allows infantry to strike enemies from a safe distance.

The weapon excels when used behind allies, where precise players can separate the opposition while avoiding hitting allies using the precision of the thrust of the spear.


  • Subclass: Site engineer
    • Reduced damage with improved speed and recovery
    • Strong against knights and infantry
    • Weak against Vanguard

Yes, that says shovel. The Field Engineers subclass has unique weapons, and the Shovel is the best of them all.

The shovel blade does mediocre damage, but the attacks are much faster than any landscaping tool.

The shovel is a tool of ferocity, pressing into action to overwhelm the enemy. Perfect for burying the competition.

Knights are the classic image of European feudal warriors. Their armor grants them the highest amount of health and the slowest movement speed.

They’re best used in the thick of the action, where skillful blocking and retaliation allows them to shrug and reflect significant damage.

Battle Axe

  • Subclass: Officer
    • Increased combo speed and damage for aerial attacks
    • Strong against knights and infantry
    • Weak against Vanguard

The battle ax, used by the officer subclass, does its best with vertical swings, making it a great weapon for dealing damage in groups without harming allies. It has good damage power and good range.

Swing speed is increased, giving it a good shot at landing hits immediately after blocking another heavy weapon.

The speed of combos is increased, making it an extremely effective weapon against groups or in one-on-one duels.

One Hand Spear

  • Subclass: Guardian
    • Quick release with increased stab damage
    • Strong against the infantry
    • Weak against Vanguard

Knights of the Guardian subclass can summon their inner Leonidas with this short spear and shield combination.

The shield allows them to get close to enemies but remains relatively immune to damage.

Up close, the spear can be aimed around enemy blocks, finding areas of defense gaps. This combination can be extremely frustrating for players on the other side, as they take damage when they think they should be safe.

Great warriors know how to use the best weapons for their class. Nonetheless, it takes skill to use them in combat, and you may need to experiment with these or other weapons to find the one that best suits your playstyle. For more feudal warfare, be sure to check out our Chivalry 2 play center.
