Broadsword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



A straight sword with a broad blade designed for slashing.

A large sweeping attack makes this effective against crowds, but is prone to deflection from walls in narrow spaces.

Skill: Stance
While in stance, use normal attack to break a foe's guard from below, and strong attack to slash upwards with a forward lunge.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • At 40 Str and 40 Dex, when infused with a Refined Gem and upgraded to +10 this will surpass other Straight Swords, like a fully upgraded and Infused Lothric Knight Sword, even though it only has a C Scaling in both Strength and Dexterity.

      The Broad sword has the highest AR with sharp infusion @75 Dex with 473 AR. At 3 units of weight absolutely perfect for my Flynn build combined with hyper aggressive play style just shreds most pvp. I hardly lose between light rolls and super fast r1s and attacking constantly.

      • 23 May 2017 04:57  

        this has to be updated, raw broadsword +10 has 322 AR making it the best raw ss in the game.
        Previously was the Astora ss, but now it has 302 AR, AND you need the faith ring.
        With at 10/10 str/dex for the broadsword you need no ring, the perfect weapon for sl1 runs.

        • 18 May 2017 09:07  

          My favourite. A raw broadsword is so damn good you won't need anything else to beat the game. Also it seems that its range is glitched because the sword looks really short but you can attack enemies quite the distance away.

          • 25 Apr 2017 17:14  

            A great and underused alternative to the Long Sword and Lothric Knight Sword. It's currently about on par with the Dark Sword in my uninformed and anonymous opinion. Great dueling weapon for quality builds, and a great secondary weapon for strength builds.

            • 12 Apr 2017 12:48  

              I'm on NG+5 but never gave this sword a chance because it looks small. Now I use it as my main sword because it has the highest damage output when refined with almost 500 atk when one handed

              • 07 Apr 2017 17:37  

                When i first played ds3 my first souls game and saw this weapon it looked so pitiful and small, now im on ng+8 and this is a favorite as well as being the most damaging straight sword in game including darksword

                • 03 Apr 2017 19:58  

                  A fun, but flawed weapon, with good power, fairly low stamina consumption, a nice design (despite the wonky proportions on the handle) and a strong R2 attack that, while less versatile than previous entries in the series, can really be handy in PvP for punishing careless players. The R2 is less useful in PvE, though, especially with how fast some of the enemies can get. Not a fan of the weapon art, but still is exciting enough to use if you throw in roll/dodge attacks. Also a surprisingly good choice to parry with. I liked it since DkS, it was my mainstay on my dark spellsword in DkS2SotFS, and it is now one of the weapons I cycle through in my quality build in 3.

                  • 28 Jan 2017 18:47  

                    Was the starting weapon for the knight class in Dark Souls 1. Same goes for the Silber Eagle Kite shield you also find in this room. Strange they don't let you start with this equipment this time when the Longsword, that can be obtained from Greirat, and a parry shield are an upgrade to both in my opinion.

                    • 17 Jan 2017 02:36  

                      I stumbled on the Broadsword on my 5th play through (yes, I said it) and I was shocked!! This is a sick quick R1 slasher that stuns most enemies allowing you to rip right through them. The R2 rush is also great. It has better AR / damage than heavier and slower weapons. It simply shreds through enemies. Refined +10 is the bomb!!!! It upgrades with titanite and is resin buffable. It's not sexy but I don't mind.

                      • 01 Jan 2017 02:52  

                        Back in DkS2 i used to have this sword and god: the ass-kickage and awesomeness were amazing! Seriously, this weapon is one of the best, if not the best one, of the straight swords: it has decent range, good damage and very spammable RB (im on xbox so no R1 for me). In pvp i stack this weapon with Pontiff's right eye and hornet ring and god... people get really really mad at this sword. I recommend this sword for any build. I have a heavy melee build with FUGS as main and refined broadsword +10 and i think is the best complement to the fugs: a lighty but hard hitting sword

                          One of the few things I hate about Dark Souls is the most boring weapons in the game tend to have the highest stats.<br/><br/>Over here we have the blade of (insert chosen deity here) forged for battle against the unholy spawn of the deep it can fire bolts of magic and grow twice it's normal size.<br/><br/>Over there we have a short piece of metal that you can swing at people<br/><br/>no matter what you do that piece of metal ends up the better weapon.
