CryptoBlades is a RPG fighting game that’s gaining popularity thanks to its play-to-earn feature.
In CryptoBlades, players forge weapons and recruit a team of warriors to fight enemies and earn SKILL tokens.
The game features different elements assigned to characters and weapons.
These elements have a rock-paper-scissors type of strength and weaknesses, similar to Pokemon.
In this guide we’ll teach you the mechanics of how elements work in CryptoBlades and how you can use them to your advantage and win more combat battles.
What are the Elements in CryptoBlades?
There are four elements in CryptoBlades:
In the game, all characters, enemies, weapons, and weapon attributes are assigned an element.
Elements in CryptoBlades can increase or decrease the chances of winning in combat.
Each element is strong and weak against another element.
What are the strengths and weaknesses of each Element in CryptoBlades?
Here are the strengths and weaknesses of each element in CryptoBlades:
Fire > Earth > Lightning > Water > Fire
- Fire is strong against Earth but weak against Water
- Earth is strong against Lightning but weak against Fire
- Lightning is strong against Water but weak against Earth
- Water is strong against Fire but weak against Lightning
What is the best Element to use in CryptoBlades?
Just like in a rock-paper-scissors game, there is no single best element in CryptoBlades.
You just need to use the correct elemental combinations for your characters and weapons, and counter your enemies with their elemental weaknesses.
What elemental combos should I use for combat in CryptoBlades?
When doing Combat in CryptoBlades, your odds of winning are increased if you use the proper elemental combinations for your character and weapon.
You get a +7.5% modifier if you choose a weapon whose element matches your character’s element.
In addition, you also get +7.5% modifier if you attack an enemy whose element is weak against your element.
Both bonuses stack, so you can potentially gain a +15% advantage if your weapon and character element matches, and if you attack an enemy with its weakness.
Keep in mind that the opposite is true as well. If you attack an enemy whose element is advantageous against your element, you also receive a -7.5% modifier.
This is why it is extremely important to learn the elemental weakness chart—choose the correct weapon combos and attack the enemies that are weak against you.

What elements should I choose for my characters?
The element of a character is assigned at random when it is first minted at the Plaza.
Again, there is no single best element for a CryptoBlades character.
To increase your overall power and improve your chances of winning in combat, do your best to obtain weapons that match the element of your character.
A common tip for new players is to come up with a team of four characters that all have the same element. That way, you will only need to focus on investing on a single powerful weapon.
For example, you can get four characters that are all of the Fire element. Wield them with a powerful 4-Star weapon of the Fire element, ideally one that has pure stats as well.
