Elden Ring Weapons Tier List (2023) - Best Weapons

Elden Ring, a revolutionary action-RPG title, has been topping the market charts right from its inception. Similar to other games in its genre, Elden Ring boasts a massive collection of weapons, with each unit having a unique skill set, and abilities.

Having the best weapons in your Elden Ring loadout will enable you to combat the toughest enemies. However, choosing the best weapons is a bit tricky task, especially when there are over 300 weapons to choose from. 

To save you from this time-consuming process, we have prepared the Elden Ring tier list ranking all the weapons from best to worst.
