Important ⚔️

Basic Weapons is a mod that works with Fabric, Quilt & Forge. Depending on which mod loader you're using you will need to download different things:


About 🤺

Basic Weapons adds 5 new weapon types of every vanilla tool material (Wood, Stone, Iron, Gold, Diamond, Netherite) to complement the existing sword and axe in Minecraft. Each weapon is balanced around damage, attack speed, crafting costs and special effects. If you have Better Combat installed, the weapons are also balanced around attack reach, number of enemies hit, and combos.
Weapons should feel unique, powerful, easy to use and fair. I made Basic Weapons because I was looking around for weapon mods that would fit seamlessly into vanilla gameplay, and didn't quite find what I was looking for. I hope that in creating Basic Weapons, I've made that search a little easier for those of you who've had a similar experience. If you want more information about each weapon's individual stats, please check out the Modrinth page for this mod. Unfortunately Curseforge's support for markdown tables is non-functional.

dividerBetter Combat Integration 🔥


Basic Weapons works well as a drop-in mod to spice up the weapon variety in your adventures, but it plays especially well when paired with Better Combat.
With Better Combat installed, spears gain more range, quarterstaves receive exciting new attack combos, daggers and clubs can be paired with other weapons for dual-wielding mayhem, and the hammer even features a fully custom attack animation.
If any of this sounds interesting to you, I recommend you try the two mods out together. Better Combat can take some getting used to at first, but it's well worth your time investment in the long term, bringing a new layer of strategy and fun to your weapon choices and fights.


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) 🧡

  • What are the mod's dependencies?
    Basic Weapons has no required dependencies except for the usual Fabric API/ QFAPI that most mods on Fabric and Quilt require. For an upgraded experience you can install this mod together with Better Combat for more exciting fights if you want.
  • Is there a forge/fabric/quilt version?
    Yes, all three! The downloads are named for whichever modloader they're for so just take a look at the file names :)
  • Can you backport the mod to Minecraft 1.X.X?
    Unfortunately I don't have the time to backport Basic Weapons to earlier versions. The mod will however support each new version of Minecraft.
