While Diablo 4 gives you a weapon based on character class and skills, you can switch your weapons out if you are playing Barbarian. Here’s everything you need to know about switching weapons with Barbarians in Diablo 4.

Diablo 4 Season 3 features various classes, each with its unique skill trees, specializations, playstyles, weapon sets, builds, and more. You can switch between weapons automatically depending on those classes and skills.

How to switch Barbarian weapons in Diablo 4

In Diablo 4, you can switch your Barbarian weapons through the Skills menu, as it will allow you to cycle through different weapons for each skill.

For most classes weapon switching is automatic, as different skills will naturally use different weapons. Some skills are better suited for certain enemies over others simply due to the weapon they make use of.

However, if you’re playing the Barbarian class, things work slightly differently, as you can equip up to four weapons. While most of the Barbarian’s skills will automatically switch your weapon like other classes, some of them will allow you to assign a specific weapon.
