Archero Best Weapon Guide – Tornado, Scythe, Bow, or Blade?

We're taking a look at the best weapon options in the game of Archero.

Our Archero Best Weapons Guide will walk you through everything you need to know about the top picks for weapons in this game. If you're going to make it far in this game, you're going to have to be ready with the best weaponry available. This isn't an easy game, and you will be challenged the further you make it into the chapters!

Archero Best Weapons List

There's four different weapon types in the game. Each of them can be upgraded with gold and a scroll, as well as by fusing them to increase their rarity. The rarities are Common (White), Great (Green), Rare (Blue), and Epic (Purple), Perfect Epic (Purple w/Gold Border), and Legendary (Gold).

For the most part, you should generally just use the weapon of the highest rarity you own. This does a lot towards your ability to deal damage, and while there is pretty much a consensus on which weapon type is the best. You won't always have a high grade option in that category.

Tornado (Boomerang)

The Tornado is largely considered the best weapon type in the game. It has pierce on it as a perk, and it also comes back to you which deals additional damage to your enemies. So, you are not only having the possibility of hitting multiple enemies, but you'll also get additional damage as it comes back. You can also position yourself in a way that the Tornado will return to you and hit an additional enemy along the way!

Scythe

The Scythe is another very strong weapon option, particularly later in the game. It has an included knock back ability that will keep monsters off of you. The knock back ability is pretty valuable, because it's not something you can gain as an ability. This also does quite a bit of damage, which is good in the later game particularly when you fight the Chapter that features nothing but bosses.

Bow

The Bow is your typical all-around weapon. It does good damage, and it has a decent attack speed. It's the perfect starter weapon, but it also can continue to work well in the later game if you just happen to be receiving a lot of bow drops. The Bow also has a bit of a natural knock back to it as well, it's just not as pronounced as the Scythe.

Blade (Knife)

The Blade has the fastest built-in attack speed of all of the weapons. If you value that in your weapon, then it's not a bad choice. The damage is the weakest among all of the other weapons, but again you will be making up for that with how fast you can throw these.

  1. I am currently at 7-5 and dagger is best for me atm. Ofc id dont have the right value , but it seems to me that DPS is higher then other weapons. Small knockback is included.

    One thing i dont like about ARchero is how mandatory some skills are (f.e. Multishot, Front arrow, Ricochet) and how completely useless a lot of skills is

  2. U always need crit, min crit, double att, +1 front for higher hit chance, att, min att, bounce and pierce, ats and HP’s +two bats cuz not knocking towards u…this is mostly only a way u win, just be careful with scythe while hitting enemies back, it’s easy to kill your self, also never pick up side arrows cuz of drastically reduced dmg of front, also recommend to farm lower stages for spinning wheel, gold become worth less…have luck with 300diamond chest 🙂

  3. to be honest all of the weapon are just the same, i see many people are underating the bow and overating the scythe but it all just the same if you really consider everything in to account, its not just the stat boost that u get at the start of the game but also the item or stat boost later in the game, ive tried every single weapon and all of them are just as good, take the bow for example, the stat boost u get while lv up in the game is very unpredictable, the bow has an average of everything so no worry picking whatever stat boost it gives you, another example is the blade, u can build higher attack or crit chance and double the attack with great speed boost in the begining, but it kinda suck if the game just gives u more speed boost, but the worst one is no doubt to be the boomerang, ricochet is one of the best upgrde in the game and provide that boomerang doesnt come back the way it hits the monster after taking the ricochet along with its bad speed makes it the worst ever .Because rarely all the mob would be align for the boomerang to be used effectively(plus its knock back are the worst by far,even more than the blade)

  4. Wait, but there’s no difference in damage between all weapons. You can check it out by equipping weapons and watching how your overall dmg is not changing. They have difference only in their own perks. And i dont know why devs gave confusing descriptions for the weapons. For example: scythe “slow atk spd, but high dmg”- ok, so we should assume that other weapons have lower dmg coz saw blade “has high atk spd and low dmg”, but it’s not true.

  5. One comment worth mentioning for the knife – some of the abilities ( crit, headshot) are a % chance per strike. So the faster knife allows more attempts at these. Not sure if the trade is equal to higher damage, but a valuable consideration

  6. I think we could suggest to The developers add an in-game button to switch the weapon. We select Weapon A and B in the equipments, and inside the game a Button to alternate between then. Useful for normal stages vs Boss stages

  7. The thing to be considered here is crit damage.
    More attack speed simply means more chances to crit.
    However, knockback is also something very important.
    Here is the thing, I depend more or crits than normal damage. That is why I preferred knife/boomerang to bow. Even though the boomerang has low attack speed you get more instances of damage, so it works out

    1. Do you mean headshot? Because with crit it doesn’t really matter if you have a lot of damage or attack speed, with more attack speed you will crit more but with more damage your crits will be huge

  8. Boomerang is hardly the best weapon in the game. The big bulky projectile will often blend and confuse your attacks with the enemy’s. It gets worse if you mix it with alot attack speed and your screen is just lots of these bouncing around, preventing you from seeing the enemy’s projectile attacks. Definitely not for the long run where the enemy’s attack will pretty much kill you in a few hits and having to dodge them is a must. I’ve progressed to chapter 5 and is no beginner for sure.

      1. I will have to disagree. Scythe is by far the best. You get knock back and you also have high attack power. just add in atk spd and you are good. I use Scythe and try to get more arrows with invincible shield. i kill bosses fast when im up close with diagonal arrows and double shots. Also, I do not run into the problem with having too many weapons shot out that you cannot see the enemy projectiles. Farthest level I have completed is 5-42.

        1. I’m on chapter 7 6/10
          The knife was good up until chapter 6 (I have a purple knife)
          but now I highly recommend the scythe (purple).

          1. I’m on chapter 7
            6, stage 14 of 20. My highest items are only Blue (rare) so far. Using sythe, sythe & ghost bomb pets. I really have to get lucky and get Ricochet, multi-shot, and speed ups to get anywhere. Really tough game. But the challenge is super fun! Progress is steady. Have to go down to level 5 to farm better.

          2. Has anyone upgraded past gold-bordered purple? it’s called perfect epic. just made my bow that strong today. it didn’t get another effect it just got a higher level and a bit stronger I think. let me know if you guys can.

        2. I’m on 10-20 and when u get up to these levels ull see scythe blocks ur view of enemy projectiles. Bow is the way to go.

    1. I have epic of every weapon and I find I’m most successful with bow. Here’s my reasoning. Bow has small projectiles so they dont block ur view of enemy projectiles nearly as much as scythe or boomerang. Also its projectile speed is faster then scythe and boomerang so you will miss moving targets less. Now you might be saying ok well what about the knife? It’s even faster attack speed. Yes but not that much, with upgrades in game bow can easily be just as fast. And now my main point I been building too, bow does alot more damage then knife, almost double. My setup has 2 wolf rings for crit which makes that bow crit damage ever so much better.
