Curse of the Dead Gods Wiki

Weapons are items that are used to fight the enemies in Curse of the Dead Gods. They can be acquired from killing foes (looted on the ground), treasure chests, and Weapon Sanctuaries.

Currently, there are 13 types of Weapons that fall into 4 primary categories: Main, Off-hand, and Two-handed Weapons, as well as Torches. Each weapon type has its own fighting style.


In the Underworld, the Forsaken weaponry menu can be used to unlock new weapons using Jade rings. Note: in the lists below, weapons with an unlocking cost of 0 means they are permanent (unlocked from start and can't be banished), and those with a cost of 50 means they are Champion weapons, they need to drop from a Champion before becoming available to be unlocked.
