Weapons are an important element of Brawlhalla. Each weapon has a different moveset and each character has access to two weapon types. Weapons work similarly for every Legend that uses them, but each Legend has a set of 3 Signature Moves, or "Sigs" as they are frequently called, for each weapon, a set of distinct heavy attacks that are exclusive to a Legend. No two Legends have the same usable weapon combination.
Weapon pickups will appear in the form of a sword of fire (with a color corresponding to the map) and will give a character one of its two available weapons. These pickups will continuously spawn throughout the match and will always spawn above a platform in mid-air before falling and landing on the platform. If a pickup is left untouched for a certain amount of time, it will despawn. Pickups can be grabbed immediately once spawned.
The first time a player picks up a weapon during a match, they will receive one of their weapons at random, and every time after that will give them whatever weapon they didn't pick up the previous time.
List of Weapons[edit | edit source]
Axe - A slow heavy-hitting weapon with large knockback.
Blasters - A dual-wielded gun-like weapon with projectiles that explode instantly.
Bow - A ranged weapon with a projectile that disappears after a short distance.
Cannon - A heavy-hitting weapon with big blows and powerful blasts.
Gauntlets - A fast, close-range, high speed, low damage weapon with light attacks that easily connect with other attacks.
Grapple Hammer - A bulky brute-force weapon with a few grappling properties.
Greatsword - A large, two-handed sword with built in combo attacks.
Orb - An unconventional magic-based weapon that's easy to control with quick attacks.
Katars - A dual knife-like weapon with a unique attack style.
Rocket Lance - A rather invasive weapon with a lot of power. Very useful in aerial situations.
Scythe - A weapon that features “Active Input” on a number of its attacks, most possessing grappling effects, for unpredictable combos.
Spear - A quick weapon with a relatively larger range than most melee weapons.
Sword - A short-ranged melee with an arsenal of rapid, small attacks with decent knockback.
Weapon mechanics[edit | edit source]
If a character takes too much damage or is attacked with way too much force, the weapon they are holding may fall off their hands, leaving the player completely unarmed. It is, then, necessary for them to grab another weapon, which is always different from the last weapon picked up.
A weapon can also be thrown by its user, causing damage to anyone it hits. This is useful in case the player grabs a weapon for a character but doesn't want to use it now, or simply prefers the other weapon which that character has. Any thrown weapon can be caught by the player who threw it, allowing them to reuse it, so long as they are not holding a gadget, another weapon, or in the midst of attacking. Once the thrown weapon begins to despawn, there is a small time window for the weapon to be picked up before it disappears completely.
Ranged weapons[edit | edit source]
Weapons that one might expect to have ranged attacks, like Blasters or Bow, do not work how one might think at first glance. These weapons do not offer any more range than other weapons. If this was the case, evasive players would have an advantage if they used them. Instead, these weapons offer unique attacks for a multitude of strategies rather than the conventional "point-and-shoot" tactics. The blaster and the bow have a set range on their attacks with a space in between the weapon and projectile that doesn't register any damage. This effect is more apparent on blasters.

Weapon Skins[edit | edit source]
Weapon Skins are cosmetics that modify the appearance of weapons. A weapon skin can be equipped by any Legend that uses that weapon.
Weapon skins can be obtained in many ways; some can be purchased directly from the Store while others are included with the purchase of Legend Skins. Weapon skins are also available in the Battle Pass, certain DLC, and in some cases by following Brawlhalla social media.
