The Best Weapons in Valheim and How to Create Them

Here are the recipes so that you can make the best weapons in Valheim. Survival titles are not easy at all, especially if you are a Viking surrounded by dangers, and that is why in Valheim you must always know how to make the best weapons for each moment.


It is essential that you have a weapon crafting guide for Valheim, not only telling you what each of them is worth for you but also with the necessary recipe so that we can create them. In this weapons guide for Valheim, here I’m going to gather what I consider to be the best weapons and be sure that the first weapons in this list will be obtainable in the first hours of playing Valheim.


It is one of the first weapons that you can develop, and that will help us to hunt or to defeat the first boss of the adventure. Thanks to the bow you can attack enemies from a distance so as not to rely so much on the club, and you could also make it much more powerful if you create fire arrows. For them, you only need wood, resin, and feathers.

But to expressly create the bow, all you need are 10 pieces of wood and 8 pieces of leather.

Stagbreaker Hammer

This giant two-handed hammer is the most powerful melee weapon you can get, at least initially. Of course, it has a very slow attack speed so fast enemies would have advantages. You will be able to make it as soon as you collect your first central piece of wood that is obtained by cutting pine trees in the Black Forest Biome.

The recipe is 20 wood cores, 5 deer trophies, and 2 pieces of leather.

Abyssal Harpoon

It is the only harpoon that you will be able to get in the whole adventure, and as you can imagine it is destined to hunt marine creatures like the snake. You can also use the harpoon to pierce some enemies with what is a good weapon.

The recipe to make it is 8 of fine wood, 30 of chitin, and 3 pieces of leather.

Abyssal Razor

This is a melee weapon that may appear weak but has a kind of stab multiplier. This means that it deals up to 10 times more damage if the enemy does not touch you. It is also the best knife in the game and serves to perform stealth eliminations of both enemies and animals.

To make it you need 4 fine wood, 20 chitin, and 2 pieces of leather.

Draugr Fang Bow

Unlike the previous bow, with this weapon, we have a greater piercing power and it is much more precise. It's not easy to craft because you need 10 Ancient Bark, 20 Silver, 2 Deer Skins, and 10 Green Matter found in the trees of the Swamp Biome.

Porcupine Mace

This iron-tipped club is a heavy weapon, and it's faster than you think. It is suitable for any melee and requires needles and linen threads, which will be available as soon as you discover the Plains Biome.

To create the weapon you need 5 fine wood, 20 of iron, 5 needles, and 10 of linen thread.

Frostner Axe

It's a blunt axe, and best of all, it can deal with freezing damage and spirit damage to enemies. Of course, it is very difficult to create since it asks for Ymir meat that can only be bought from the merchant called Haldor of the black forest.

To create it, you need 10 Ancient Bark, 30 Silver, 5 Ymir's Flesh, and 5 Freeze Glands.
