Weapons

From Stardew Valley Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Weapons are used to fight monsters. Most weapons can be found as monster drops, purchased from the Adventurer's Guild, or found in chests in the mines. Most weapons can be sold to the Adventurer's Guild, usually for half the purchase price. Slingshots cannot be sold.

Most weapons have a secondary attack, executed by right-clicking. With the sword, you will block some damage or knock back flying enemies. A club will smash the ground, knocking back nearby enemies and causing minor damage. With a dagger, you will perform a series of quick stabs.

The Axe, Pickaxe, and Scythe can be used as weapons to inflict a small amount of damage. The Axe and Pickaxe consume energy, while the Scythe does not.

Dagger

Daggers are the fastest-attacking weapons in the game. Their range is short, however, and they only target the square in front of the player rather than swinging in an arc like a sword. Using their secondary attack causes the player to stab multiple times in quick succession.

Club

Clubs are heavy weapons that tend to be slower than swords and daggers but with a wide swing. Their secondary attack causes the player to slam the ground in front of them, causing an area-of-effect attack in a radius around the player that has strong knockback.

Right-clicking with a Club and immediately holding down the "C" key (default config) will cause multiple attacks to occur in quick succession.

Slingshot

The damage dealt by a slingshot depends mainly on the ammunition used. A Master Slingshot will generally deal 2x the damage of a regular Slingshot using the same ammo.

Image Name Description Damage Critical Strike Chance Location
Slingshot.png
Slingshot Requires stones for ammo. Depends on ammo used .02 The Mines (Floor 40 chest reward)
Master Slingshot.png
Master Slingshot Requires stones for ammo. Depends on ammo used .02 The Mines (Floor 70 chest reward)

Slingshot Ammunition

To equip a slingshot with ammunition, select the ammunition, then Right-Click on the slingshot.

The type of ammunition used determines the damage dealt, according to the following formulas:

Slingshot:
Damage = AmmoMultiplier + random number between [-(AmmoMultiplier / 2), AmmoMultiplier + 1]
Master Slingshot:
Damage = 2 * (AmmoMultiplier + random number between [-(AmmoMultiplier / 2), AmmoMultiplier + 1])

With the worst ammo (i.e., Fruits, Vegetables, or Eggs), a Slingshot can deal 1-3 and a Master Slingshot can deal 2-6 damage. With the best ammo, Iridium Ore, a Slingshot can deal 25-101 damage while a Master Slingshot can deal 50-202 damage.

The following items can be used as ammunition:

Glitches

  • It's possible to clip through to the space around any map area (e.g., the black area around the Farmhouse) by repeatedly swinging a sword while standing just inside the exit point.
    • To return from the normally unreachable area, simply walk into the exit point.
  • It is possible to use a club weapon's secondary attack several times in quick succession by right clicking then mashing left click before the attack animation is over. This can be useful while attacking higher level enemies with a low level weapon.
    • Pressing left click too early will result in a normal swing to take place rather than the secondary attack.

Trivia

  • The only way to get rid of an unwanted slingshot is to place it in a chest in a villager's path, so the villager will destroy it when walking through it.
  • There is unimplemented game code allowing the player to receive a "Battered Sword" through the mail as a reward for an unknown event. This sword could be upgraded (by unknown means) 4 times, changing it into a "Hero's Sword", "Holy Sword", "Dark Sword", and finally "Galaxy Sword."
