Most Weapons in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey are randomly generated. However, there are some Legendary Weapons that grant amazing engravings and fantastic boons. Check this page to learn how Weapons work in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and how to obtain every Legendary Weapon in the game.
EditHow Weapons Work
Weapons, like Armor, are divided by four types of rarity. Common (gray), Rare (blue), Epic (purple), and Legendary (gold). All weapons, except Legendary Weapons, are randomly generated and can be obtained by looting chests and enemies and completing quests. See how they differentiate in the chart below.
Keep in mind you can level up any Weapon you’d like, which is well worth the trouble for pieces that give you buffs that match your playstyle. Check out Engravings;to see what kind of buffs Weapons can have.
|Common Weapons provides only one buff and one slot for an Engraving.||Rare Weapons provide two buffs and one slot for an Engraving.|
|Epic Weapons provide three buffs and one slot for an Engraving.||Legendary Weapons provide only three buffs, like Epic armor, however, these are usually superior by at least one percentage more than Epic armor. They also come with a special, Legendary buff that unlocks its Engraving. For example, you may find a weapon that increases the Sparta Kick Ability damage by 20%.
Legendary Weapons cannot be bought or sold in stores.
