In The Witcher, steel swords are used primarily against humans, and non-humans, as they have little effect on monsters, with a few exceptions: Vodyanoi, Dogs and Wolves are also effective steel sword targets. Geralt can have up to two steel swords equipped at once.

Standard swordsEdit

Steel swords are commonly found in lootable containers, dropped by humans and non-humans upon death, and sold by merchants. Occasionally, steel swords can be acquired as a gift from other characters.

Meteorite swords Edit

Meteorite swords are steel swords which can be forged using three pieces of meteorite ore by a blacksmith. Different combinations of meteorite ore produce swords which deal different damage and critical effects.

NotesEdit

  • Unlike branding rune swords, forging a meteorite sword does not require a steel sword to start with; only three pieces of ore are needed. A newly forged meteorite sword will fit in Geralt's primary steel sword slot or the heavy weapon slot, see inventory.
  • You cannot use ore to upgrade the stats of an existing sword - it always takes three pieces of ore for this transaction, and a new sword is created. Any existing primary sword in Geralt's inventory is dropped, and disappears as soon as you leave the shop. If you want to collect meteorite swords, simply store your primary sword at an inn prior to the transaction with the blacksmith.
  • If you cannot get G'valchir, Meteorite swords that cause bleeding (three red or three yellow) are probably your best option when fighting Greater Brothers and especially Mutant assassins towards the end of the game, as they are immune to most or all other effects found on non-silver swords.
  • It is possible to "steal" meteorite pieces from blacksmith by simply dropping (selling is also possible) them during transaction, and later re-use them to another sword. Works same with runes.
