Best Gear

The Fighter Class is nicknamed the weapon master in Dark and Darker. This class can equip virtually all the weapons available in the game thanks to the Weapon mastery perk. Other than that, here are all the exclusive Fighter weapons.





A spear is a great weapon, and the Ranger class can also equip this weapon with their spear proficiency perk. It is a medium-range weapon that can deal a lot of damage to enemies. Halberd is a ranged weapon, but a spear is often preferred by players thanks to the thrust. For ranged battles, the bow is the best option, while the arming sword or the long sword with the shield is the perfect blend for melee attacks. Long swords also enable players to do a parry-style block. Fighter can't use any spells for crowd control, so a ranged weapon is a must-have for all the Fighter builds. For beginners, the shield is a must-have as it will protect them from all the incoming damage. Avoid fighting with multiple enemies at the same time, even if your defense is high.
