As it is a Soulslike game, weapons play a really important role in Lies of P. Because of that, it vital that you choose the best weapon that you possibly can. This is especially true right at the beginning of the game, when you are still learning the ropes and getting used to the combat in LoP. There are several starting weapons to choose from – one for each combat style. And when you start the game, you’ll no doubt want to know which is the best starting weapon in Lies of P. In this guide, we’re going to go over all of them, and give our recommendation on which one we consider to be the absolute best out of all three.
Best Starting Weapon in Lies of P
So, which starting weapon should you pick in Lies of P? At the start of the game, you are going to need to choose between one of three combat styles. These are: Path of the Cricket: Balance, Path of the Bastard: Dexterity, and Path of the Sweeper: Strength. Each one of them comes with a different starting weapon. Out of all of these, our pick has to go to the Path of the Bastard: Dexterity and its corresponding Wintry Rapier. It is made up of the Wintry Rapier’s Blade and Wintry Rapier’s Handle.
The reason why the Rapier is the best out of all the starting weapons in LoP is because of its fast attack and excellent animations. And while the damage output isn’t all that great, this, too can easily be fixed. Once you start the game, make sure that you buy the Greatsword from the merchant before confronting the first boss. The moveset is tied to the handle of the weapon, so craft a weapon that has the Wintry Rapier’s Handle and the Greatsword’s Blade. This will dramatically increase your damage output, while still allowing you to pull of fast attacks.
