Pyramid Blade

The pyramid blade is a level 9 blade. It is super rare. The inspiration for this blade's design is from the Pyramid Head in Silent Hill 2. You can receive this weapon through a vendor, but it is so scarce that you need to buy it immediately if you do see it there! You cannot modify this weapon, but that's OK. It is so strong that it needs no mods.


  • Damage—502
  • Durability—210
  • Damage at Night—+11%
  • Health Regen after Perfect Block—+7%
  • Stamina Regen on Power Attack—+17%

Enso Katana

The Enso Katan can be maxed at level 8. This blade is mostly found from higher-level enemies in the end game. You can put mods on this blade to make it stronger, but it is potent even at a base level with no mods. Remember, you cannot take mods off this Enzo Katana once they are placed. Pick those mods carefully to get the maximum effectiveness out of your build.


  • Damage—481
  • Durability—210
  • Stance Meter Damage—+7%
  • Health Regen after Perfect Block—+22%
  • Damage vs Infected—+17%

The Barbarian is a powerful long sword that can be maxed out at level 9. This Blade is not effective if you use it on a lower level. Wait until you are stronger and have a few more mods in your backpack before unleashing this Blade's full potential. Keep in mind that the Blade is a slower weapon. Once the mods have been placed on this weapon, you cannot take them off. Again, choose your weapon mods carefully.


  • Damage—470
  • Durability—210
  • Stamina Regeneration on Quick Attack—+9%
  • Damage During the Day—+14%
  • Damage at Night—+21%


The Yardstick is likely the best bow in the game. This bow is maxed out at level 2, so it doesn't seem like it could do all that much, but that is entirely wrong. This weapon allows you to take on Biters from a distance and do significant damage. The only problem with the bow is that you can't put mods on it. The bow itself makes up for it in terms of damage and durability.


  • Damage—353

PK Crossbow

Another ranged weapon on our list, this Crossbow is ridiculously overpowered. This Crossbow scales with your level. Once you have the Crossbow, you'll notice that it has a free, unlimited number of bolts. You can only receive the PK Crossbow if you side with the Peacekeepers at the Electrical Station at the edge of town. After siding with the Peacekeepers four times, you will receive the PK Crossbow, the best-ranged weapon in this game.


  • Damage—Near 1000 for Scaling
