We have brought you the Dead Cells Weapon Tier List. Decide the best weapons and unlock them first so that you can use them against the enemies. 

The Prisoner, an amorphous creature that can possess human corpses, is the protagonist of Dead Cells, a side-scrolling 2D game. As part of The Prisoner’s journey, the Prisoner enters a fictional island festooned with mutated monsters that the Prisoner must overcome so the island’s King can be killed. Your weapons and weapons upgrades are lost upon death, except for a few permanent items.

You can also dodge attacks from enemies by crossing the ground or jumping over them. Furthermore, you can move through an enemy’s space and attack from behind by dodging through their space. If you fall from a height, you will slam into the ground, allowing you to stun the enemies.

While the player is in the dungeons, he can upgrade the Prisoner’s abilities with mutations, which grant him unique abilities until he dies. During this time, the player can reforge weapons, giving them new capabilities. Inside the dungeons, Power Scrolls can be found as well, which increase the hit points of the Prisoner and increase the damage of weapons based on whether the tool is classified as Tactics, Brutality, or Survival. You will need the best weapons in the game so read below to know about them.
