Can the 2019 UA Artificer's Returning Weapon and Radiant Weapon infusions stack on the same weapon?

Each infusion grants you a +1 to hit and damage rolls, so would you get a +2 with both infusions?

My thought is that you can only infuse one weapon at a time.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I assume you're asking about the most recent UA from May 2019? \$\endgroup\$ – V2Blast Jul 27 at 5:33

No, they don't.

You can infuse only nonmagical items and an infusion turns an item magical. From page 5 of the Artificer Returns document:

Whenever you finish a long rest, you can touch a nonmagical object and imbue it with one of your artificer infusions, turning it into a magic item.

After you apply the first imbue to it, it is a magical item. That makes it not a nonmagical object, and therefore nto a valid target for infusion. They do not stack.
