Chivalry 2 Best Weapons Guide

In Chivalry 2, each class has its own set of weapons which are allotted based on the playstyle of the class. There are weapons that are unlocked from the start while their cosmetic variants will have to be unlocked by playing. In this Chivalry 2 Best Weapons guide, we will list down all the tools in your arsenal, whatever class you decide to go with.

Chivalry 2 Best Weapons

As mentioned before, weapons are class-specific in Chivalry 2 so a Knight can’t use bows and an Archer can’t use Longswords. That being said, every class has the ability to throw weapons so you still have some range capabilities regardless of your class selection.

How to unlock Cosmetic Variants of Weapons

To unlock the Cosmetic variants of the weapons, you will need to level up your class. Leveling up your class requires you to gain points by playing matches. Use these points to level up the class and unlock multiple different cosmetic variants of weapons.

There are 4 classes in Chivalry 2 and each of them has their own set of weapons as well as unique cosmetic variations of those weapons.
