Weapons in Dark Souls 3 are listed on this page. Players may equip up to 3 in the slots for each hand. When developing a build, the player should try to find the weapon that mixes the right amount of damage, bonuses and moveset, alongside stamina consumption and Skills. Weapon classes do not necessarily share the same skills so check each individual weapon page to see its specific skill. If you would like to learn more about each weapon, visit their page, or check out the Combat page for specific explanations on how to master the game.

How to choose a weapon in Dark Souls?

Players create builds around specific weapons that have good movesets, deal significant damage, or are easily obtained. Some players choose weapons for their cosmetic appearance, but in most cases it is advisable to refer to the scaling and upgrading path of weapons to determine if the output is beneficial to the character in pve, pvp or both. The following categories of weapons have details on their base damage, and all individual pages feature infusion charts, with some extending to full moveset videos.

                  ok to who ever's the dingbat down voting people who say the links are messed up, cut the crap.

                  seriously, click the damn links your self and see what the issue is. literally gael's greatsword, ledo's great hammer and the white birch bow. all 3 of them lead to the wrong weapon pages and they need to be fixed. go ahead. click em your self and see.

                    Does anyone know how to calculate how much hyperarmor a weapon has? How to determine what weapons it can take without getting stunlocked or hyperarmor broken? I just dont get how they did poise/hyperarmor in this game it doesnt make much logical sense to me. This is one of my biggest mysteries in pvp.

                      For new players to pvp or those who generally arent having much luck in pvp, there is one small thing that can net you victories over your opponents, and although it seems simple, its not always obvious. Carry more than one weapon equipped, the ability to swap up your playstyle or counter a parry king in a fraction of a second could easily grant you a win. My personal favorites are: splitleaf greatsword, zweihander, and lothric knight sword/crow quills. Equip weapons than compliment and/or make up for the flaws of the others.
