We’ve broken down the best weapon for Amazons in Diablo II: Resurrected.

Amazon’s are elite Askari warrior women who are known for their military skill and prowess on the battlefield. They are primarily nomadic, often falling into conflict with other peoples and expertly defending themselves in the struggle afterward. They are known as fiercely independent and able to weather significant adversity. Some hire them out as mercenaries—in which they will only ever remain loyal so long as they are also progressing toward their personal goals.

Best Weapon for Amazon in Diablo II: Resurrected

Amazons are best known for their exceptional skill with bows, javelins, and spears. Unlike other classes, Amazon’s don’t particular have a “best” weapon choice out of these three. In fact, their special weapon drops, “Amazon Weapons” include all three types.

The most common weapon players will give an Amazon is the bow. When compared to the first Diablo game, bows in Diablo II—and, by extension, Diablo II: Resurrection—have widely expanded abilities and importance. Additionally, Amazons have the highest bow attack speed, averaging almost two attacks per second.

Javelins are another popular choice with which the Amazon also has a fast attack speed. They have a higher attack when thrown than when used as typical melee weapons—though they can be utilized as such in a pinch. Players can carry 60 in a stack at a time.

Spears are rarely seen by classes other than the Amazon. They come in both one-handed and two-handed varieties. As opposed to Javelins, Spears are primarily melee weapons, and are not able to be thrown. Unsurprisingly, Amazons also have the highest attack speed with Spears.
