This article covers all the details about each class, their weapons, and their subclasses. The four classes of Chivalry 2 are Knight, Vanguard, Footman, and Archer. Each of these four classes is divided into three subclasses. In this guide to the best classes in Chivalry 2, we’ll be discussing all the classes in terms of abilities, weapons, and attacks. Archer is the most agile and least armored class, while Knight is the most armored and least agile class.

Chivalry 2 Best Classes

There are three types of weapons in Chivalry: 2 cut, sharp, and blunt. Depending on the class you have chosen, your weapon options may be limited.

The cut weapons are faster and give more balance while hitting enemies, while the other two compromise. Cut-type weapons can be slower and blunt-type weapons are less penetrating.

Additionally, blunt-type weapons sometimes don’t allow you to hit multiple enemies at the same time. Each of the classes in Chivalry 2 will have access to all types of weapons, so you can use any of them. Now, let’s get into the details of these classes.

Archery class

The first class of the game is the archer. This class is the most polarizing of the four classes. The crossbowman has access to a bow, the crossbowman has access to a crossbow and a skirmisher has access to either javelins or throwing axes.

The best weapon to use here is a bow, as it can hit enemies from a distance keeping the archer safe. Keep in mind that your accuracy and stamina will be destroyed if you hold the arrow for too long, so release it quickly. Brazier lets you adjust your arrows to shoot and hit enemies, causing more damage. Secondary weapons like knives and clubs allow you to hit enemies faster. Other secondary weapons like short swords and axman can help you improve your defense against enemies.

Here the crossbow helps you deal more damage to enemies compared to a bow. Additionally, a crossbowman can use a shield to stop attacks from enemies while attacking. You can also use a banner that allows your allies to heal themselves while staying away from enemies.

Here the javelins can come in handy; as they help your allies finish off opponents while you distract them with Javelin attacks. Javelins offer good range and also deal a lot of damage. On the other hand, throwing axes are faster and also strike enemies more effectively. Knives and hawks can also be damaging with quick attacks on the enemy.


Vanguard has the most endurance than other classes, so it offers more vigorous combat.

The first subclass is devastator. This subclass aims to inflict the most pain with the biggest weapon in the game. Battleaxe is a top choice, as it allows you to kill enemies over a larger radius and hit enemies faster due to its larger size.

Maul can also be damaging as he can kill enemies with one hit. Throwing mallets can be useful as you can throw them at the enemy from a distance, thus keeping you safe while attacking the enemy. The pot of oil is also one of the important weapons in Devastator, as it allows you to set the battlefield part on fire.

The second subclass raider offers you to use two primary weapons, which allows you to take down fleeing enemies. The weapons available to a raider are the messer, Danish ax, sword, and two-handed hammer. The Danish ax offers less damage but allows you to kill enemies from a great distance.

Next weapon, the messer is a well known weapon with more range and high damage against all types of opponents.

A two-handed hammer can be useful against single targets, especially when in team fights. Due to its speed, the sword harasses the enemy constantly and is effective.

The secondary weapon knife and trumpet are also a good option. The Trumpet is a rechargeable item and a powerful source of healing. The charge trumpet restores your health.

The last subclass is the ambush. Unlike his brethren, who prefer to carry two-handed weapons in battle, he carries two sets of secondary weapons. Players need to play smart by mixing primary and secondary weapons to cause more damage. Also make sure to attack enemies while staying behind them.

The quiver is also a good weapon that can be loaded without an ammo box. A dagger is good for stabbing, while a short sword helps you kill enemies faster.


The first subclass of Footman is Poleman. Poleman also offers a variety of weapons of different types.

The first weapon to use is the halberd. This weapon offers everything you need, good range, speed, balance, and deals decent damage.

The next weapon is a pole. Polehammer is a blunt weapon and has a ridiculous amount of damage at a greater range.

The spear is also a good choice, as you can swing it from different angles. This weapon allows you to attack enemies from a distance, thus improving your defense against enemies. A Bandage Kit is a rechargeable secondary weapon that players can throw at enemies multiple times.

Man at arms
The second subclass is Man at Arms. He mainly carries one-handed weapons during battle. This class also offers a shield to protect you. The Sword, Morning Star, Falchion, and One Hand Spear are the weapons to use. The sword is a well-balanced weapon that hits the enemy hard.

Falchion is a weapon with a decent range and helps you take down enemies more easily.

A one-handed spear is not a fast weapon but does a lot of damage to enemies.

Secondary weapons are knife, ax, mace, etc. An ax is a destructive weapon at high range. On the other hand, a short sword is much faster than an ax, causing more damage. Mace is more aggressive and offers a “heavier” alternative.

Site engineer
A field engineer has a shovel, a pickaxe and a sledgehammer. A mace offers less range but is a heavier weapon, so it can deal more damage to the enemy. However, the excavator delivers everything with good reach and more damage.

Lastly, a pickaxe offers a fair amount of damage, but it can be less accurate than a shovel. Secondary weapons include a bear trap and a spike trap. Players should prefer a bear trap, as it can help them bring shields to the team.

Knight Class

Knight has three subclasses; Office, guard and cross.

The first subclass is the officer who carries heavy weapons, including a longsword, battle ax, pole ax, and heavy mace in combat. The Long Sword is a shorter version of a Grand Sword, so it does a great deal of damage.

The hatchet with large stab wounds and overhead make it a good weapon.

Heavy Mace is a large blunt-type weapon, causing heavy damage to the enemy. An ax with a good reach and stabbing is also a good choice.

Secondary weapons include a knife, ax, and mace. They act as backup weapons for the players. The officer also has a trumpet to frame his allies. They can also use sprint to take on enemies.

Guardian is a really special class that changes the game. Warhammer is the first choice with weapons. He is powerful and hits hard towards enemies. Players can choose their targets and hit them quickly.

The ax is a well balanced weapon but is more effective against lighter classes.

The one-handed spear allows you to harass your targets from a distance and interrupt their attacks, so it’s highly recommended. Guardian keeping its defensive theme offers a banner for shielding against enemies while players heal themselves.

This subclass is a powerful enemy. The weapons to be used are a two-handed hammer, a battle ax and the executioner’s ax. Axes offer very damaging attacks; while the messer also helps you hit enemies quickly.

This subclass also has a pot of oil that you can drop and set the battlefield on fire.
