Weapons are one of the most important aspects of any video game, and Minecraft is not an exception to this rule. The game's weapon system is rather barebones - players only have a handful of gear to choose from, which can get boring after a while.

By installing one or more of these weapon mods, players would be able to enjoy a much bigger variety of swords in Minecraft. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 10 best mods for swords in Minecraft 2023.

1. MC Dungeons Weapons
