Weapon Recommendations

The following table contains some recommendations for weapons to equip, depending on the damage type that your opponent is not defended against, and your tier.

Often there are multiple recommendations for a combination of damage type and tier, either because there are “epic” (hard to obtain but usually very good) and “regular” (easier to obtain, less awesome) weapons, or because multiple weapons are comparable. E.G. if you already have an Alpha Prime T3 short-range weapon, going through the hassle of obtaining a Sword of Many Truths might not be worth it.
