All Hades 2 weapons and the best ones to use

There are five Hades 2 weapons to unlock at the Silver Pool, each with their own Attacks, Specials, and Omega Moves at the cost of some Magick, providing plenty of ways to smite your foes. The Nocturnal Arms can also benefit from Daedalus Hammer upgrades and divine Boons, amping their power even more, and you can eventually unlock and upgrade Hades 2 Aspects for each weapon that can change how a weapon works significantly. Below, I’ve ranked the best Hades 2 weapons and have explained how they work and how to unlock them.

Most of the Nocturnal Arms are perfectly adequate in Hades 2 at the very least, but a couple of them are hard to put back in the Silver Pool because they’re so powerful and fun to use. I’ve ranked the best Hades 2 weapons below based on my experience using them across multiple runs, facing all sorts of enemies and bosses:

  1. Sister Blades: Lim and Oros’ can pretty much do it all, but their single-target and close-range damage is where they really shine. Rapid stabs stun and wear down regular enemies, the Omega Attack is great for burst damage, and the ranged Special is useful for applying various curses and effects.
  2. Moonstone Axe and Argent Skull: These weapons are similar in that they deal high amounts of damage per Attack and have incredibly powerful and wide-reaching Omega Specials but can be slow to use – obviously the main difference is that the Axe is a melee weapon and the Argent Skull is ranged. Both also have a bit of learning curve but are very effective in the right hands.
  3. Witch’s Staff: Melinoe’s starting weapons is a solid option that’s easy to use but is a bit of a master-of-none weapon. Its standard Attacks have good range but are far weaker than the Sister Blades, and the Omega Moves deal solid damage in a wider area, but not as well as the Axe or Skull.
  4. Umbral Flames: Unfortunately, the flames are easily the worst weapon in Hades 2. They’re awkward to use, require almost constant Magick, and deal underwhelming damage. Even the Aspects don’t help much.
