5 Must Have Weapons in Salt

In Salt, we've tried to implement a ton of weapons and items into the game so that players will have a lot of loot to earn and a variety of items to choose from. We want players to be able to pick and choose gear that fits their playstyle and gives them freedom to play the way they want, but still feel powerful.

Today I want to highlight five weapons in Salt that every true pirate should try and obtain.

Bow of Poison

First off, if you don't have a bow, you're going to want to get yourself a bow. Not only are they useful for hunting deer, but they allow you to get a head start by damaging pirates from a distance. The Bow of Poison is a particularly useful bow because arrows shot from it will sometimes be poisoned, dealing even more damage over time to your enemies.

Gigantic Mouth Sea Bass

Okay, admittedly this "weapon" doesn't do that much physical damage. But it does however do a ton of damage to one's pride. I mean, no one wants to get slapped by a fish right? For now you can go around slapping pirates with this large fish. Once multiplayer is implemented you'll definitely want to slap other players with the fish. It's a no brainer really. 

Blood Jungle

Here we have another great damage over time weapon. Blood Jungle is a one handed sword but is still pretty powerful in it's base attacks. However, it also has a chance to do a bleed effect on enemy which does damage over time. 

Treasure Hunter's Scimitar

This legendary scimitar is a great weapon to have when searching for treasure. Whenever you are near a grave site, the scimitar will make a ringing sound alerting you. And of course grave sites contain various loot boxes and sometimes very rare ceremonial loot boxes with really nice gear, making this weapon very handy for finding rare loot. 

Ancient Skull Staff

The Ancient Skull Staff is one of the few weapons in the game that can do an area of effect damage, making it very useful when fighting multiple enemies at once. Using it's area effect does consume a small blood vial though so you'll have to have a few of those on hand, but if you do it can do some good AOE damage. 

So there you have it: five must have weapons in Salt. Some of these can quite difficult to get so don't fret if you don't have them that. If you want to know how to get them, be sure and check the Salt Wiki for more information!
