Moonlighter Wiki

The Spear is one of the weapon types in the game Moonlighter.

it is a medium damage weapon with a conical long range attack in-front of Will, and a charge special attack. The spear is also the 2nd slowest weapon in the game, only beating out the Big Sword. The spear offers excellent range and knockback to keep enemies at bay.

Once the special attack is fully charged, Will can turn in any direction to start the charge (Changing the direction before the charge is complete will reset the charge). After activation, Will can be moved side to side for better aim. This is similar to the Glove Special attack, except that it lasts much longer.

As for pairing with the weapon swap trick, the Glove makes a great pairing, as it allows to swap into the long range finishers, and in general supports the slow attack speed of the spear. The Sword and Shield also pairs well and an extremely defensive pairing. The Bow and Big Sword are additional long range weapons that do not offer as much support.

Normal Attack:

  • Hit 1: A forward thrust.
  • Hit 2: The same forward thrust as Hit 1.
  • Finisher: A slightly longer thrust that deals double damage and extra knockback.

Special Attack:

After a long charge time, Wills charges forward with the spear and finishes with a thrust. Both the charge and final thrust can hit, dealing double damage. Will has invulnerability while charging.
