Minecraft Dungeons has been shown to include a variety of both melee and ranged weapons, from hammers to bows that shoot flaming arrows. Learn all about the variety of weapons found in the game!

What are Weapons?


Weapons are what you use to bring down the baddies. Players will equip weapons with a variety of stats and effects to battle their way through the game.

Weapons are shown to have Power, Speed, and Area stats, as well as a base Damage stat. These seem to affect how the weapon is used in combat, so be sure to choose Weapons which best suit your play style and the Armor you've chosen for your character.

Melee and Ranged Weapons


It's been confirmed that Minecraft Dungeons will use both Melee and Ranged Weapons, and that players will have one of each equipped at all times. Gameplay footage shows players effortlessly switching between a sword and a bow to take out enemies both close by and far away in a single swoop!



Players can also add Enchantments to their weapons to add additional effects and further specialize their weapons. Adding an Enchantment which matches a weapon well can make for a deadly combo!

Salvaging Weapons


As you progress through the game, you'll frequently switch out for superior Weapons and Armor found on your adventures. You can put your old Weapons and Armor to good use by salvaging them, which will yield some amount of Emeralds; in addition, the Enchantment Points already spent on that Weapon will be returned. Be sure to Salvage your old gear so you have plenty of Enchantment Points to soup up your new Weapons with!

Really cool to see that there's more than just swords for weapons in Dungeons. I wonder if there'll be the same kind of variety for ranged weapons
