Top 5 Best Weapons in Unturned

Posted on by justin
Unturned offers a wide variety of weapons that players use to navigate the many undead hordes lying in wait. But what are the best weapons in Unturned? Today, we dive into this concern by going over the top weapons to look out for along your journeys in Unturned.

Ranking the Top 5 Best Weapons in Unturned

Unturned Best Weapons The number of weapons in Unturned isn’t as expansive as in other games like Terraria. Nonetheless, the following weapons were picked after looking at their stats and practicality. In particular, these top-rated pieces of equipment are generally ideal to use because of their range, weight, and damage output.

#5 - 1911

Players who recently spawned (or respawned) into an Unturned map may find some 1911s lying around in various different areas. Although this handgun lacks power compared to other choices in this list, its status as an Uncommon rarity firearm makes it a good choice for surviving undead (or living) opponents in a pinch.
Stats
  • Equip: Secondary - 4 slots (2x2)
  • Fire Mode: Safety and semi-automatic
  • Range: 109.36 yards
  • Attachment options: Barrel and Tactical

#4 - Crossbow

Progress further into Unturned, and you may wind up finding the Crossbow. This ranged weapon uses pine arrows by default, but it can still use other arrow types as ammo as well. It can only spawn in campgrounds and farming locations, but it doesn’t spawn in the Dango, Arid, Elver, and Kuwait maps. One of the main advantages of using the Crossbow is that a player can use it immediately after reloading. But, like its bow cousin, the Crossbow has a slow reload time. Plus, it’s expensive to repair and loses durability fast, so only taking absolutely necessary shots will go a long way.
Stats
  • Equip: Primary - 8 slots (4x2)
  • Fire Mode: Safety and Semi-automatic
  • Range: 218.73 yards
  • Attachment options: Grip, Sight, Tactical, Crossbow Barrel, and Crossbow Iron Sights

#3 - Sabertooth

Perhaps your aiming skills improved after playing Unturned for some time. If so, then the Sabertooth might be your next weapon of choice after graduating from a 1911 Pistol or a Crossbow. The Sabertooth's high accuracy and ability to deal massive damage is one of the go-to semi-automatic weapons in the mid to late-game of Unturned. Just make sure to prepare for its high vertical recoil, or you might miss more shots than you should.
Stats
  • Equip: Primary - 10 slots (5x2)
  • Fire Mode: Safety and Semi-automatic
  • Range: 273.40 yards
  • Attachment options: Barrel, Grip, Sight, Tactical, and Sabertooth Iron Sights

#2 - Schofield

Introduced in the 3.3.4.0 update, the Schofield is a powerful rifle that players can use to carry them throughout most of the game's content (as long as it has ammo). It uses the Schofield Clip, which holds a maximum of five rounds. Despite its loud gunfire, players can attach a muffler to the Schofield’s barrel to reduce its noise. But doing so will also reduce its damage output. Even with this reduced damage, however, the Schofield stands above the non-gun range weapons before it. The following locations typically have this gun in stock:
  • PEI: Inside gun stores
  • Germany: In all farms and campgrounds, but can also spawn inside sheds
  • Washington: Inside gun stores
  • Russia: May drop from zombies or be found in campgrounds and farms
Stats
  • Equip: Primary - 10 slots (5x2)
  • Fire Mode: Safety and Semi-automatic
  • Range: 218.73 yards
  • Attachment options: Barrel, Grip, Sight, Tactical, and Schofield Iron Sights

#1 - Shadowstalker

It's late-game, and you need a weapon that can decimate large groups of zombies. To get the job done right, travel to Washington's UFO location or inside the Scorpion-7's shooting range for the Shadowstalker. The Shadowstalker is a high-damage railgun that automatically comes with a unique 6x scope. It also has the best hip-fire capability out of every 5x2-slot weapon in the game. It's this flexibility and devastating power that makes the Shadowstalker the pound-for-pound best weapon in Unturned Do keep in mind, though, that the Shadowstalker degrades quickly. Thankfully, its repair costs aren't so expensive, so you can still mow down crowds of the dead without worrying about anything but reloading.
Stats
  • Equip: Primary - 10 slots (5x2)
  • Fire Mode: Safety and Semi-automatic
  • Range: 328.08 yards
  • Attachment options: Grip, Sight, Tactical, and Shadowstalker Scope
