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.
  • All weapons have motion values assigned to each attack, which are modifiers to AR that are associated with the attack being used.
    • The Broadsword has a motion value of 200 on backstab, 250 on riposte, and 60+225 on Hornet Ring riposte. The motion value of a backstab with a straight sword does not change with Hornet Ring.

 

  • The Long Sword has a range of 17sp on the 1h R1.
    • sp, or Shield Pokes, are a unit of measurable distance to determine the range of a weapon. Certain actions create different distances from a wall, allowing one to test the range of certain attacks. While this testing isn't 100% accurate, it is a very good indicator of the ranges of each attack.
  • The Broadsword has lunging R2 attack that finishes with a sweep.
  • In terms of damage, it excels over the other Straight Swords in certain areas, primarily when infused Raw, Fire, and Deep, as well as Heavy on their respective builds.

      This is probably the best infusion weapon in the game for a pyromancer. With a Chaos or Dark infusion; At 40/40 INT/FTH the weapon dishes out over 500 AR one handed, 359 of which is either fire or dark. With low stat requirements and early availability, even if you aren't a melee oriented build this is a nasty side arm to have available.

        I've heard that this sword got buffed around the same time the ASS got nerfed, and that the BS now has the same stats raw as the ASS did before the nerf. At first I didn't care, as the BS requires less stat investment and the same weapon art. However, the range is low as the page says, and for some reason, this sword does not have any trust attack, despite clearly being made to thrust. Because of this, I recommend only using this sword until you can farm a falchion. As a raw weapon the falchion has a higher AR and about the same range. I think it might be quicker, but not 100% But for PvE, the falchion is just simply a better sword. Of course the raw mace is even better yet. Too bad the longsword is so inferior in terms of damage as a raw weapon.

          Compared to other weapons in its class, it trades versatility for power. You can dish out really good damage with this, but spacing is hard with this sword, mostly because of all the attacks being slashes and the heavy attacks being very telegraphed lunge slashes. Still, it's really good for chasing and generally playing aggressive, but if you're trying to play reactionary and outspace people, don't use the broadsword. It's broad, not long

            The perfect companion for my pyro character. When infused with an elemental gem (one Chaos and one Dark in my case) and reinforced to +10, the Broadsword is stronger than the Longsword in terms of both base and scaling damage. Light, found very early in the game and doesn't require too much DEX/STR investment. Love it!

              The SL1 gem. Raw infusion, Flynn’s, Lloyd’s and no armor achieves exactly 400AR. Most enemies fall before they get a chance to attack you making their one shot potential useless.

                In real life, this sword would be for thrusting, it’s description says slashing, and it deals Standard damage. Gg Miyazaki.

                  Ironically this sword is better at stabbing than all of the other straight swords if you look at the blade shape from a realistic perspective.
