    That said, now without any further ado, let’s jump right into those lethal weapons.

    Cult of the Lamb Weapons Guide

    There is quite a variety of weapons in Cult of the lamb but what’s sad is that you cannot choose a certain weapon each time you embark on a crusade in the Heretic-held lands. However, you can raise the chance of getting stronger weapons by unlocking new skills from the Fatih tree, which is only accessible if you arrange sermons for your cult.

    Additionally, each weapon also possesses one of a number of distinct characteristics that give them unique abilities which we will be discussing later.

    Since you cannot choose a weapon while going on a run, make sure that you get the best out of the random weapon given to you, or maybe start a new run until you find the right weapon for yourself. Nevertheless, the chances of getting a stronger weapon can be increased as discussed earlier. Here is a list of all the weapons you can get your hand on in Cult of the Lamb:

    Primary Groups Explained

    Cult of the Lamb Crusade


    Daggers deliver less damage than other weapons, however, they are very high-paced and ensure that the enemy won’t get breathing room and will keep on getting damage. If you’re fortunate enough to get your hands on them the Bane Dagger and Merciless Dagger are the best options to go for.

    Gauntlets and Swords

    Gauntlets and Swords are well-balanced and dependable weapons. They are not as quick as Daggers but they deliver more damage making them totally worth the use. The merciless, vampire, and necromancer types are a safe bet.

    Axes and Hammers

    Axes and Hammers are heavy weapons that deliver enormous damage and since they can even kill enemies in one single hit there is a high chance of getting death-triggered abilities. If you’re fortunate enough to get your hands on Vampiric and Necromantic varieties, they are definitely the best options to go for.
