Bandit's Knife is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



A wide single-edged shortsword.

Primarily a slicing weapon, but its blade is crafted to cause bleeding, making it a favorite of lowly thieves and bandits.

Skill: Quickstep
Instantly step behind or around the side of foes. Especially effective when locked on to target.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • All weapons have motion values assigned to each attack, which are modifiers to AR that are associated with the attack being used.
    • The Bandit's Knife has a motion value of 330 on backstab, 396 on riposte, and 66+385 on Hornet Ring riposte. The motion value of a backstab does not change with Hornet Ring.
    • This means that aside from a difference in AR, no infusion is strictly better for ripostes, as all infusions will get the same motion value, with the only difference being AR. Use whatever infusion will net the most damage for the best results.
    • Note that Dark damage does not benefit from Hornet Ring in PvP.

 

  • The Bandit's Knife has a range of 23.0596xl on the 1h R1 and 26.2909xl on the 2h R1.
  • The Weapon Skill Quickstep can be used to lessen the recovery frames of any attack.

      Wow. I wish I had realized the power of this sooner. I've completed the base game, Ashes of Ariandel and am a little over halfway through The Ringed City and only just now did I check it out. I haven't put a single point into luck,but even so, once I got it to +9 and put on a Blood Gem, holy hell. It's so incredibly fast, and with 56 bleed, it absolutely shreds enemies who can be bled. For NG+ I'm going to have to respec to put points into luck and see just how insane a Blood Bandit's Knife can be.

      • Anonymous

        This weapon is remarkably effective in PvE. I've been ripping through NG+ with a faith / dex build, alternating between Sharp and Blood Bandit's Knife, supplementing with buffs and occasionally pyromancies or Dorhys' Gnawing. Quickstep completely humiliates some otherwise very tough bosses AND it keeps the fights fast-paced and fun. Naked Slicey Boi fears no evil!

          Hello DS3 player, I am come to you for a little favour, and I will carry this message to everywhere in DS3 community.
          There is a glitch that allows you to summon white sign mad phantom in Gael’s Arena (Credit to Dashingsaint), if you keep Shira alived while she invade you (you can escape her simply sprint out her aggro range), you won’t trigger gael boss cutscene, and then you could put down you purple summon white sign or summon other white purple.
          Thus, a new fight club is founded, an arena in a long lost dessert under the sunset sky which sprinkle with fainted galaxy.
          If you’re watching this, kindly please help me share this and invite any ds3 enthusiast you known to this new fight club, your little effort would be much appreciated.
          SL25+2, SL40+4, SL60+6, SL72+8, SL90+10, SL125 Meta, SL 351++, all SL range are acceptable.
          Welcome to the Gael’s Sunset Arena, the most beautiful map in the entire series, the last arena at the End of World.
          I will await you there, in the End of the World, and we shall fight eternal, shiny and incandescence.
          LONG MAY THE DARK SOULS COMMUNITY LIVE

            I love this weapon. It's very good at the beginning of the game, and invaluable for an early Dancer fight. But unfortunately it's completely pointless in PvP. Bleed is so bad it's not even funny, and compared to Chaos Dagger, Corvian, Murky, Rotten Ghru, even Mail Breaker, there are just better daggers to build around.

            • Raw infusion is completely useless, even at low levels.
              Not sure what the damage is at minimum base stats, but with 10 str and min dex, it deals 99 damage uninfused and 90 infused (with no upgrades).
              Was about to raw infuse it before noticing this

                I did a whole video to demonstrate the absolutely gorgeous damage of this weapon and how useful it is at early game, even with no upgrade and early game stats. ------- https://youtu.be/k6ESDQtzYqI -------

                  Best bleed weapon in the game. You just need base stats to wield, 40 luck + blood infused. Add a poison infused ghru dagger and melt those casuals in pvp who think hollow infusion + resin is the way to go for a luck build. Try Death

                      One of the best weapons for bleed builds, if not the best. Starting weapon, incredible speed coupled with the overpowered quickstep ability allows for decimation of most bosses. I use it with 40/40/40 STR/DEX/LUCK and hollow infusion. Apply carthus rouge for bosses and you won't be disappointed.

                      • Anonymous

                        best dagger imo, as if the high base damage with good scaling on litterally the fastest kind of weapon in this game was not op enough, it also causes bleed damage every couple of attacks, doing over double the normal damage in that one hit. beating crystal sage and the deacons of the deep with this little monster was like a stroll in the park, so easy i literally barely took damage from both bosses, did not need estus and easily killed them first try by just spamming dual-handed r1.

                            Love this weapon in pvp. I’m not the best pvper ever, but I pretty much stick with either black knight sword and perseverance or this. Infuse bleed gem and quickstep around their attack and punish. Probably win like 9/10 matches with this which is pretty high for me.

                            • Anonymous

                              You can get some good use in PvP if you pour a lot of time into really mastering it. Totally God-Tier in PvE. Bleeds nearly everything in 3 hits and is super duper fast with low stamina cost. Best infusion is Bleed or Sharp. Crit damage is low but might as well make use of it. Use that quickstep and backstab for days! 2 handed moveset is great with an opening thrust attack. Wasn't fond of daggers beforehand. Now I'm a Dexfag and proud of it.

                                Note that this weapon has the best physical AR when bleed infused of anything else in the dagger class bleed infused. And since it further stacks the innate bleed proc, logically that makes this the best choice for bleed infusion of any dagger, Tough call between sharp infusing this and applying resin, or going full bleed infusion. For PvE I'd say the former is better, for PvP I'd say the latter is slightly better (so you can switch between it and other weapons).

                                • I don't see people using this at low level, it is brutal since it causes damage, bleed and fast staggering, so it is easy to break guards, very useful cause there are too many low lvl people using shield

                                      Your best friend in every SL1 run! My personal best choice against Friede, who gave me the most trouble on my first run...

                                        Since having 55 luck yields only 3 extra bleed with Blood infusion according to this page, I would reccomend keeping one of these around on any build for PvE purposes. Bosses such as Gael will be much easier if this is in your inventory; a special occasion weapon, if you will. Even if it feels cheap (which destroying enemies with this can at times), you’ll never regret keeping one around.

                                          This weapon isn't typically noted for its prowess in PVP, however...if you catch an opponent in a tight spot or attack them mid-casting, you'll bleed them out in seconds.

                                          Regarding PVE, this thing is a beast. You'll bleed most enemies in 2-3 hits. I recommend keeping a secondary weapon such as Anri's to take down unbleedable enemies.

                                                Bleed infused knife becomes really powerful weapon against demon princes. Just stay under them and mash r1, they bleeds after every 5-6 hits)

                                                      I'm kinda late since it's been almost a year after the release of Dark souls 3. But I will say it anyway. This weapon is not the best for PVP, but KEEP this weapon whenever you PVEing. Bandit's Knife + Carthus Rouge is the ultimate weapon for bosses. I'll give you one example of Gundyr, the first boss.
                                                      When you take Gundyr sword from his chest, you can attack him before he even gets up right, well I spammed the***** out of Bandit's Knife with Carthus Rouge while playing at NG 5+, Gundyr had HALF HP when he did his first attack. Bleed is the ultimate stat for NG+, it scales with maximum HP. This said, even the hardest boss in the game, also known as Nameless King, will***** bricks while fighting you. Don't use it on his dragon tho.

                                                        This weapon is the epitome of dark souls: difficult and frustrating but fun as hell. Just watch out for a few things.
                                                        1. Curved swords and straightswords. These weapons are fast enough to catch you after quickstep and have faster swing than bandit knife immediately after a trade. Basically, you're *****ed when going up against these.
                                                        2. Prioritize dodging over dealing damage. This helps a lot.
                                                        3. This weapon is super easy to party. Both r1 and r2 can be parried with the same timing. So don't throw out an attack immediately after a quickstep all the time.
                                                        4. This weapon CANNOT roll catch. Don't get angry because of this.
                                                        5. Be super aggressive all the time. Low stamina consumption is a beautiful thing. Be up your opponent's ass as often as possible and you can tear them a new one.

                                                          I was using this in DS1 as a Thief, and dear GWYN it's OP. Fast attacks? Check. Bleed? Check. High durability, even for a starting weapon? MOTHER. *****ING. CHECK. Just, wow. Whoever made it OP in From, thank you!

                                                            I've invaded a lot using this dagger for fun and I realized it's stronger than I expected.The weapon is very fast and the opponent can be staggered by consecutive hits (poise mechanics in DS3 lol...)The damage itself isn't big but the bleed status can be dealt easily with few attacks.I've tried also the Poison infusion and few hits were able to put both poison and bleed on the target with a very dangerous effect.Really surprised.

                                                              • This dagger is godlike with bleed. it applies 51 bleed per attack, coupled with Carthus Rogue ups the bleed effect to 96!!! Good lord this weapon is unreal in PvP. Your attacks are lightning fast because of the dagger move set. I was able to down 3 summons at once due to its unholy amount of bleed damage. Truly the underdog of Dark Souls 3. 10/10, would bleed again.

                                                                • ...I think this thing on a dex/luck build could be interesting utility as an off hand weapon. It hits so fast that when coupled with the bleed increase of luck, it could compliment a main weapon for acumulation very well. Goes really well together with a rapier like Estoc in main hand too as a suggestion.
