New World: The best weapons for PvE and PvP - Tier List

The MMO New World offers you a system without classes. Instead, the weapons determine your style of play. But which weapons are the best and which are particularly suitable for PvE and which are more suitable for PvP? 


The result was one tier list for PvE and one for PvP, as the two ways of playing are very different from each other. The weapons were each assigned to different tiers:


  • The most powerful weapons are in the S tier
  • There are still powerful weapons in the A-tier, but they have a small disadvantage compared to the S-tier
  • There are weapons in the B tier that are useful at least in certain situations
  • There are weapons in the C-Tier that you should rather ignore

In addition, we will tell you in the article which weapons work well in combination with the S-tier weapons.

The tier list is currently at the status of July 26, 2021 and is therefore the closed beta. We will keep the list up to date for the release and beyond.

What makes the weapons in the S-Tier so strong? Basically, weapons are strong in PvE, they cause a lot of damage and also kill the enemies without taking much damage yourself. Accordingly, ranged weapons such as the bow or the fire stick are very useful.

In the case of the fire stick, there is also the burning effect and the AoE damage. This is particularly useful in the open world and with trash mobs in dungeons, where there are sometimes several enemies in a pile. However, the damage subsides a bit when it's only against a specific opponent.

You won't go wrong with the hatchet either, because the weapon strikes quickly and brings a useful debuff to enemies, with which you reduce armor. You benefit from this both in solo play and in a group.

It's best to combine a melee and a ranged weapon to get the most powerful effect in the open world. In dungeons, a pure build of melee weapons can also be offered.

Why does nothing end up in the C-Tier? In the open world, basically any weapon can work well and since the mobs are sometimes still a bit stupid, slow weapons such as the battle ax or the musket can also be useful.

By the way, the life stick only ends up in the A tier because it is of no great use in the open world, except to make life a little easier for beginners. In dungeons, on the other hand, a healer is extremely useful and the weapon would even land in the S-tier.

What makes the weapons in the S-Tier so strong?


  • Similar to PvE, the fire stick causes heavy damage and can be used to pull enemies off the walls or to attack the wall with a lot of damage. The weapon is best combined with the ice gauntlets, as both benefit from magic and the gloves also have a slow effect.
  • The life staff is the only weapon that does much healing for the group. Especially in the battles for fortresses and in the outpost rush, players who carry a life staff are worth gold. It is best to combine the weapon with the ice gauntlets to generally provide further support for the group and to get mana. The staff also harmonizes with the fire stick or sword and shield.
  • The musket, in turn, causes a lot of damage at great distances. This makes them useful in all modes, especially when shooting down at your enemies from fortresses.
  • The spear brings a lot of CC and is therefore well suited in PvP. A popular weapon combo is spear + musket, with which you should cut a good figure in all PvP areas.

Why is the rapier not in the S tier? The rapier is a strong dueling weapon that you can use to make a good impression, especially in one-on-one. It is ideal for duels in the open world, especially when combined with a ranged weapon such as a bow or musket.

In the instantiated PvP content it is a bit too weak because it does not bring any CC and little for the group.

The bow experiences a similar fate, although it can cause damage at a distance, it is not as effective as the musket. With the DoT build, the bow can be used well in duels, but the weapon is rather weak in the instantiated content.
