Before we get into the tier list proper, let’s talk about the two different weapon types in Solo Leveling Arise. You can get Player weapons and Hunter weapons; the former is for Sung Jinwoo, while the latter is for all other non-player characters you can pull on the banners.

In addition to that, every character also comes with their own exclusive weapon that can give them additional perks and bonuses when equipped.

Generally speaking, if you’re getting any of the D-tier weapons, you should just scrap them for gold and resources to put towards upgrading your other weapons. B and C-tier weapons will suit your purposes just fine in the early hours as you’re still leveling up and getting acquainted with the game’s various systems.

Once you start getting those A and S-tier weapons, that’s when you can start considering scrapping your B and C-tier stuff for the materials you need to upgrade your better equipment.

If you’re planning on rerolling, I’d recommend going for the Demonic Plum Flower Sword as it’s a powerful and versatile weapon that will work in any party setup. It gives you a good buff to your critical hit rate, and also increases your damage output once you trigger its ability. The Shadow Scythe is another solid pick for Dark-type weapons, but it’s worth noting that you can actually get it for free just by doing challenges, so I’d absolutely prioritize the Plum Flower Sword.

For ranged weapons, The Huntsman is actually proving to be a really good pick for Light-based damage as well. Not only does it increase your DPS in Time to Hunt mode, it also deals Break damage rather passively, which will come in extremely handy in boss fights.

As you can see, I’ve put all of the hunter exclusive weapons in S and A-tier. The perks that you can get with the exclusives are second to note. That being said, pretty much every weapon listed in B-tier are very much viable until you’re able to get your hands on some exclusives.

And that does it for our Solo Leveling Arise weapons tier list. If you’re looking for a character tier list or a stats guide for Sung Jinwoo, we’ve got you covered on those fronts as well.
