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.

        In games I usually get too close to my enemies easily...despite trying to get a distance advantage on them. So, shorter weapons like this one suits me perfectly. I have a weird talent for getting close to opponents in all games by accident, so I may as well capitalize on it.

          The bastard sword and claymore always gave the same ar, no matter how you infuse/buff it. Because of this, if you have the levels to spare for 13 dex, the claymore is (in my opinion) a direct upgrade from the bastard sword. Longer range and a wa that has a great guard break with the r1 and a great wake up move with the r2. The only time i find the bastard sword's wa useful is when fighting the ringed knight scrub swords. Other than that using the stomp wa is basically like asking your opponent to bs you. So in conclusion, the claymore is overall better but the bastard sword is still a great alternative to very low dex builds.

            This sword is really good sword with less range than the claymore but faster and requires lower stat requirements and both the bastard sword and the claymore do the same damage.

              My stats: 16str/10dex and 40int/40fth.

              This sword requires less dex than the Onyx blade and Claymore.

              This sword has less range than the Onyx blade and Claymore, yet features identical AR to the Claymore at 147+26 phys and 154+255 for [583 AR] or [600 AR] twohanded.

              It's worth a look if you lack the dex for Claymore, which also happens to require 16str, but you can't make the 13 dex requirement. You could go 14str 12dex and get the Onyx, which has 526 AR, though Onyx has that fire buff, I honestly don't know what is better, that's for you to decide!

              Food for thought! If I'm wrong at all, feel free to yell at this post for being wrong!

                "Bastard" because this weapon is supposed to be between one handed and two handed swords. Between Longsword and Greatswords. Able to use it fitting the situation. Not because some guy came into this world before his/her parents were able to marry one another and then invented this weapon...

                  This looks like an English long sword, the long sword in the game is an arming sword, and the sword that most closely resembles a real bastard sword in its proportions is the Irithyl straight sword. Nice work, Fromsoft.

                    The Knight class can just barely wield this sword and the knight shield without being overburdened with starting vitality. 69.6%.

                      Inferior to the Milwood battle axe in terms of heavy infusion for a pure str build but the WA can tip the scale in its favor in some instances

                        The weapon art is so good. I love using stomp for the damage reduction when I think i can't dodge a hit, but most of all I love baiting people with it. They think the stomp part of the WA is done and they immediately think they can punish my ass... BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!!

                          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.

                            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.
