Where to find better weapons at the start? Elex Guide

At the beginning of Elex, Jax uses a weak iron rod that is only useful against the weakest enemies. You can also find a rusty axe after leaving the ruins but this weapon is also very weak. Below, you can find tips that can teach you where and how you can find better weapons that are useful in the initial parts of the game.

Warning - Some of these weapons require you to develop certain attributes of your character. You can decide whether you want to find that particular weapon or you want to get another one.
