10 Tommy Gun

Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt Tommy Gun

The Tommy Gun is effective at close to medium range, has a great fire rate, and has a big magazine size. This means players can hold down on the fire button while tracking their target for a few seconds before they run out of ammo. The fast fire rate also means players can quickly down enemies if they land enough shots.

The Tommy Gun is a great weapon for beginners because its fire rate makes it a forgiving weapon, as missing a couple of shots won’t be a problem. It also has a lot of ammo, so accuracy is not much of an issue. For those still trying to get the hang of the game, it’s a safe choice.

9 Light Machine Gun

Thanks to its balanced fire rate, the Light Machine Gun is fantastic in medium-range combat. What truly distinguishes this weapon from others is its magazine size, which is the second largest among available options. Consequently, it grants players a significant advantage by being able to unleash a barrage of gunfire before needing to reload.

The longer players fire, the more accurate the weapon becomes, and as a result, it’s easily one of the more accurate choices on this list. And as mentioned, its moderate fire rate means players can fire steady rounds without running out of ammunition before actually achieving that ideal accuracy.

8 Pump-Action Shotgun

The Pump-Action Shotgun stands thanks to its effectiveness in close to mid-range encounters, along with a noteworthy fire rate given its archetype. Despite having the slowest reload speed among shotguns, it has a distinct advantage: the ability to shoot while reloading. Its massive damage potential allows players to quickly destroy unarmored opponents with just one or two well-placed shots.

The Pump-Action Shotgun is an excellent alternative for newbies looking for a dependable shotgun. It shines particularly because it focuses less on precision than other shotgun versions. The faster fire rate makes its use quite forgivable, allowing for more lenient shots in fast-paced battles.

7 Assault Rifle

The Assault Rifle is a flexible, well-rounded weapon that thrives in various situations. It is a dependable pick for any encounter because of its impressive performance across all ranges and its decent damage, fire rate, and magazine size. This weapon displays its worth, whether for versatility or adaptability, making it a good alternative for beginners exploring different play styles.

Though it lacks the big magazine size of the Light Machine Gun and the quick-fire rate of the Silenced SMG, the Assault Rifle is still a trustworthy choice for players.

6 Dual Crossbows

These Crossbows have range and a semi-automatic fire rate thanks to explosive bolts that detonate within a small impact area. While the Dual Crossbows have a small magazine size, their true power resides in the explosive bolts they fire, which have a deadly effect.

The Dual Crossbows, with their explosive bolts, resemble miniature semi-automatic rocket launchers. Even if the player misses and strikes a wall or the floor instead, the minor area-of-effect explosions have enough impact to damage targets. This distinguishing feature makes the Dual Crossbows a good choice for beginners, especially in close-range encounters.

5 Silenced SMG

The Silenced SMG emerges as a formidable powerhouse at close range, with an amazing fire rate and an average-sized magazine. Notably, it has the distinction of being the game’s fastest-shooting gun. However, this lightning-fast speed comes at a cost: the weapon quickly depletes its ammunition, requiring players to carry a backup weapon for extended combat.

Because of its fast fire rate, this weapon is a game-changer for beginners. Having opponents in their sights for a few instants is enough to bring them down. While the weapon’s short magazine size may appear a disadvantage, it compensates with a quick reload animation, ensuring minimum downtime during fierce matches.

4 Katana

Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt Katana

The katana is hands down the best melee weapon in the game, but it is a little hard to find. It can also block and deflect bullets back to the attacker and has excellent attack animation. It also has good range and heals the player for a percentage of the damage. This weapon will surely help players who want to use the Toreador Siren archetype to deal damage.

The Katana not only deals excellent melee damage and has the unique ability to reflect bullets but also has an aesthetically appealing appearance. Its adaptability makes it an excellent pick for beginners, as it is a very efficient weapon that players of all skill levels can use.

3 Scourge Blades

Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt Scourge Blades

Like most melee weapons, the Scourge Blades heal the player for a percentage of the damage. Though it does not have the range of the Katana or the Spiked Bat, it makes up for it in attack speed. The weapon also hits with both, making it hit twice per swing. This weapon is great for players interested in playing the Ventrue Enforcer archetype.

With its quick attack speed, this weapon eliminates the risk of missing the target and enables unrelenting, continuous strikes. Furthermore, the Scourge Blades have a lunging strike that is quite useful for quickly closing the distance. This weapon becomes a must-have for rookie players, providing dependability in sticky battle scenarios.

2 Spiked Bat

Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt Spiked Bat

The Spiked Bat emerges as a formidable melee weapon with a solid range and remarkable attack speed. Its rapid two-strike combo allows for significant damage, especially when combined with a strong shotgun. This weapon is more easily available than the Katana or Scourge Blades.

Although it falls somewhat short of the Katana in damage output, its comparable range and slightly faster swing speed makes it an appealing alternative for newbies looking for an effective weapon. This weapon is also a good choice for the Brujah Vandal archetype.

1 Fire Axe

Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt Fire Axe

The Fire Axe, the Spiked Bat’s slower but more powerful sister, packs a powerful punch. While its attack speed is slow, the weapon compensates with a high damage output. It works especially well with high-damage firearms like shotguns, although it also works well with other gun kinds.

Like its faster-hitting brother, the Fire Axe is much easier to find than the Katana or the Scourge Blades. This also means players will likely find a dozen of them before finding any rarer melee weapons. It also deals the same damage as the Katana but swings slower and has less range. Overall, this weapon is one that beginners will want to pick up if they don’t mind a slower but heavier-hitting weapon.

Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodhunt is available on PC and PlayStation 5.
