The Witcher weapons

Note: This article concerns only the original computer game.

The game includes a rather small number of equip-able weapons (compared to other games), and an even smaller number of those are actually any good. The amount of armor is negligible. The weapons you get as part of the story (steel sword in the Prologue, silver sword in Chapter II) are the baseline weapons. Most other weapons Geralt finds are of inferior quality, but there are a few upgrades available.

Note[edit | edit source]

For related information, see Meteorites and Runes, which contain a list of the different combinations of meteorites and runes you can apply to weapons, or Armor which discusses what armor there is in the game.

This article serves as a launch point for more specific information.

Steel Swords[edit | edit source]

In The Witcher, steel swords are used primarily against humans, and non-humans, as they reportedly have little effect on monsters, with a few exceptions: Vodyanoi, Dogs and Wolves are also effective steel sword targets.

Silver swords[edit | edit source]

In The Witcher, silver swords are used primarily against monsters as they reportedly have little effect on humans and non-humans. Unlike the steel, meteorite and rune swords in the game, these can not be bought or sold.

Heavy weapons[edit | edit source]

Heavy weapons also known as Large weapons can not be used in Witcher styles, but serve their occasional purpose in battle or in the form of orens when sold. Enemies who have less than 33% of their vitality left may be stunned and/or knocked down by any heavy weapon attack. Nevertheless, as with short weapons, they can not be used in Stun-finishers, meaning that while Geralt performs a finishing move, only increased damage is dealt but the opponent will not die as a result unless the damage exceeds current vitality.

Short weapons[edit | edit source]

These weapons, also known as "light weapons" or "small weapons", are of questionable value to Geralt, but some do have their particular useful applications and they can be picked up and sold for orens, which is particularly useful during the early chapters. Once Geralt obtains Raven's armor, he can carry two, rather than one, of these weapons at any one time. Enemies who have less than 33% of their vitality left may be stunned and/or knocked down by any short weapon attack. Nevertheless, as with heavy weapons, they can not be used in Stun-finishers, meaning that while Geralt performs a finishing move, only increased damage is dealt but the opponent will not die as a result unless the damage exceeds current vitality. All short weapons carry the caveat "this weapon can not be combined with witchers' combat styles".
