Mortal Shell Weapons Locations and Skills Guide


There are quite a few weapons that you can find in Mortal Shell. Each of these weapons has its unique moveset and abilities. Similar to SoulsBorne games, you can stick to a single weapon through the entirety of the game if you choose to do so. In this Mortal Shell guide, we’ve detailed everything you need to know about different weapons locations, their abilities, and more.

Mortal Shell Weapons Locations

One of the most important things about weapons is that they aren’t bound by shells in the game – every shell can use all weapons. You can also farm an item called Quenching Acid in order to increase a weapon’s damage. Aside from that, each weapon in the game has 2 skills that you’ll need to unlock at the Anvil.

The following is a complete list of weapons, their locations, and abilities as seen in the game:

Hallowed Sword

You’ll find this weapon by default during the starting section. Hallowed Sword has two abilities which are:

  • Molten Spike: You’ll leap forward with your burning sword dealing burn damage.
  • Mechanical Spike: You’ll leap forward with the weapon equipped and land a devastating spike attack.

Hammer and Chisel

You’ll need to head over to the entrance of the Eternal Narthex. Once there, you’ll need to activate the book right next to the statue in order to initiate a fight with Hadern and defeat it to acquire the weapon. It also has two abilities as well:

  • Foul Censer: You’ll perform a ranged attack that deals a massive amount of damage.
  • Perfumed Censer: This is literally spin-to-win. You’ll spin and damage all the enemies surrounding you.

Martyr’s Blade

You find the Martyr’s Blade in the same way as Hammer and Chisel. It also has two abilities:

  • Petrified Winterglass: Damaging enemies with the weapon skill will freeze them.
  • Radiant Winterglass: You’ll leap into the air and crash down, freezing everyone in an AoE.

Smoldering Mace

You’ll find this one at the very entrance of Temple Grounds. Once again, you’ll need to interact with the statue and defeat Hadern to acquire the weapon.

  • Awakened Stone: This will imbue your Smoldering Mace with flames and burn enemies.
  • Foundry Stone: Activating the ability will let you slam your mace into the ground to damage all nearby enemies and inflict burn damage.


You can find the broken Ballistazooka near the workbench on the 1st floor of Fallgrim Tower. You’ll need to head over to Vlas in order to purchase Tools from him for 8,000 Tar. Once acquired, you should be able to repair it at the workbench.

These are all the weapons in Mortal Shell. If you are interested in learning more about the game then you can check out our guide on how you can parry and heal in the game. For more help on the game, you can check out our detailed Mortal Shell wiki guides.
