How Many Weapons Are There In Faster Than Light?

There are over 15 weapons currently in Faster Than Light with plans to increase the roster considerably in future updates. We’ll update this guide with each weapon release and place them into our ranking system. 

S Tier List

The best weapons in the game, and deemed the strongest when it comes to their abilities. We recommend trying to obtain an S-tier weapon as soon as possible.

A Tier List

Fantastic weapons and great replacements if you don’t manage to get your hands on an S tier. They can be used alongside S-tier weapons and can easily help you clear content.

B Tier List

Not the best in terms of strength but they’re good fillers at the start of the game. They can be used as a support choice to aid your A-tier and S-tier weapons.

C Tier List

It’s best to avoid placing these weapons in your inventory, especially if you want to clear content efficiently.

D Tier List

Not worth upgrading or using at all and should be avoided completely.
