Bastard Sword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



A widely-used heavy greatsword normally wielded with two hands.

Broad horizontal sweeping attacks make this sword effective against multiple enemies, but unwieldy in narrow spaces.

Skill: Stomp
Use one's weight to lunge forward with a low stance and increased poise, and follow with a strong attack for an upward slash.

      Someone should add item ID's here, e.g. Normal un-upgraded bastard sword = 005B8D80, then it should have the item ID's for each respective reinforcement level and infusion.

      • 28 Apr 2017 18:07  

        This weapon and the Claymore are the best greatswords IMO. An even better greatsword would have the Stomp WA of the Bastard Sword while also having the thrusting strong attacks of the Claymore. but that would make them obsolete. Shame not many people use this because it and the Claymore feel basic. Same goes for the Light Crossbow.

        • Dark Bastard Sword +1006 Aug 2016 02:53  

          Bastard Sword's move set is pretty fun, good damage. After using Demon's Fists a bunch, the range is a-okay with me. Was using the Heavy Infusion until i got my stats to scale better with Dark/Chaos. On my Pyromancer this thing is a freaking blast (sword also looks reeaal dope with the sheath on your back). Very low Dex requirement was also a selling point to me, don't like wasting levels in stats i wont further invest in. PVP-wise, the move set is a lotta fun. Sword art always gets people, along with charging the two handed R2 (the delay kills folks). Switching between the 1H & 2H move set is generally how i get more skilled players. Main tip for this weapon is to keep the pressure on!

          • just the community................29 Jun 2016 10:09  

            so i did some testing out off curiosity. i went and did some pvp with the zweihander. which has the upwards strike that makes them go flying for its weapon art. NO ONE tried to parry it, they avoided it like a normal human. then i went in with the bastard sword..... EVERY TIME I DID THE WEAPON ART MY OPPONENT KEPT TRYING TO PARRY THE WEAPON ART. do they think that because the weapon is smaller that they can parry it? aaahhh the community.......

            • utter garbage26 Jun 2016 14:26  

              mediocre damage, mediocre moveset, terrible range. There is not a single reason why anyone should use this weapon, unless they are doing a challange run or something.

              • One of the games best weapons25 Jun 2016 04:32  

                I agree, the bastard sword is incredibly underrated. It absolutely destroys in PvE and PvP, and is fast and costs no stamina, you can get a hit in, combo, and roll away without losing much stamina at all

                • How could you not like this weapon23 Jun 2016 19:28  

                  With a name like "Bastard Sword" come on! The only thing I don't like is the reach which is why I go with claymore over it but this one will always be a close second as far as GS goes

                  • As others have said, underrated26 May 2016 02:38  

                    This and the Claymore are, in my opinion, the best greatswords. Simple, historic syles. They have the same damage but slightly different movesets, making them ideal for different situations. This guy has the fun throw-yo-ass-in-the-air stomp special, while the Claymore has the standard shield break and heavy hit like many straight swords. Only thing the Bastard Sword lacks is a stab, but then the Claymore would be obsolete. They both stay close at my side in pve and pvp situations alike.

                    • Underrated GS30 Apr 2016 00:58  

                      Best IMO. Stat-wise, the brother of the Claymore, but the slightly faster moveset and the Skill R2 makes me wonder why this weapon is not used as much as the Claymore.

                      • My first strength weapon28 Apr 2016 15:49  

                        This is my first upgraded weapon on my 2H STR character. I also considered the claymore. You can get both early. I chose this because its 2H moveset is essentially identical to the claymore, but is faster and I wanted to stick with 10 dex. The weapon skill is also arguably better and it's a bit lighter.

                        • where is the love?21 Apr 2016 09:14  

                          why no love for this weapon. It is VERY good in PVE due to the heaviness of strikes that are not that slow and cost much less stamina... Also ***** good in pvp for the same reasons.
