New World – All Weapon Masteries

With the highly anticipated release of Amazon’s first MMO in New World, I have decided to put together some resources about the elements of the game that MGN was fortunate to get hands on experience with during the closed beta for the game, starting with the weapon mastery system.

I have covered every single weapon that is in the game, in terms of their statistical benefits, all the skills, passives and augments that are available for the weapon, and little bits of exposition and explanation around the weapon functions.

An example of what the weapon mastery system looks like – this is from the Hatchet one-handed weapon skill trees!

If you’re unfamiliar with the series, as it has just wrapped up, or unfamiliar with how the weapon mastery system works in New World, essentially the more that you use a weapon the more proficient that your character will become in wielding it. As you hit certain leveling milestones with a weapon, you will be granted skill points that you can spend on a number of active skills from two trees, augments that will change how those skills function, and passives that change or improve how your character plays whilst wielding that weapon.

I’m going to put our links to all the weapons here, so that you can navigate to your favourite:
