Grounded's suburban backyard can be a cruel and unforgiving place. If you don't want to become a spider's next meal, you'll want to prepare yourself with the best weapons and tools you can find. With that in mind, we've compiled a list of all of the weapons and tools you can find in the game so far.
Keep in mind that Grounded is still in Early Access and Game Preview, so tools and weapons may be subject to change. Obsidian plans on adding new content frequently, so be sure to check back as we continue to update our list with the latest information.
This following list will consist of all of the hammers, axes, spears, arrows, and tools you can craft in Grounded. We've grouped them into tiers, so the higher the tier, the better the weapon or tool. Most of these recipes will be unlocked automatically by collecting the appropriate material. Still, a few of them require you to analyze certain materials at Field Stations, the tiny computer labs hidden around the backyard.
Getting caught without a weapon in the backyard could mean a quick end to your journey. A good weapon is essential for keeping the spiders, ants, and other creepy crawlies at bay. We'll cover the type, the description, and give you the materials you need to craft them all.
Weapons: Tier 1
Tier 1 weapons are simple to craft and do decent damage. These makeshift weapons will hold their own until you find something better.
Weapons: Tier 2
The following weapons are stronger and more durable than the previous ones. You'll need to craft them at a workbench, though.
If you decide to craft a bow, you'll also need arrows to go along with it. You can use these arrows with any tier bow, which is excellent since they can get you out of a tight jam.
The right tool for the job means everything. Tools are used for harvesting materials, as well as repairing equipment, or just seeing in the dark. To make sure you have the right tools for the job, make sure you have the proper materials. Here's how to craft them.
Tools: Tier 1
Tools: Tier 2
These tools are more durable and work a lot faster than their tier 1 counterparts. You can also swing them at incoming baddies when you're in a pinch.
Tools: Tier 3
The best tools in the game so far. Only one tool fits the bill, and it happens to be the best weapon in the game, too.

|Mint Mallet||○ 5 x Mint Chunks
○ 9 x Spider Silk
