Gotthard Twinswords is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



The hunters known as the King's Black Hands wielded paired weapons. These belonged to Gotthard, who fled the castle.


Gotthard rose quickly through the knighthood, no surprise to those who have witnessed his swordsmanship.


Skill: Spin Slash
Slice into foes with a large spinning motion, and use strong attack to lengthen attack and end with a double-bladed thrust.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • One of the longer Straight Swords.
  • Also works well with elemental infusion for casters.
  • The weapon skill's initial spin can be used for catching opponents attemping to land a jump attack.

      Why this weapon is fantastic: 1. It's a straightsword. 2. Great combo potential. 3. Unparryable L2. 4. Incredible range. (Best of all straight swords, better than some greatswords and even on par with some ultras!)

        This is the best straight sword (if not best weapon) in the entire game. Longest range R1's of all straightswords, greatswords, and ties a good majority of ultra's. L1, L2, R1 combo can still deal 3/5 of a health bar unbuffed, on anyone regardless of armor and health, giving it one of the sickest combos. There's a reason this weapon has been the dueling king since the games launch, and multiple nerfs. Great elemental infusions for casters. There is no play style or build this weapon doesn't compliment nicely.

        Remember kiddos, to avoid parries: delay your rolling attacks, or simply don't use them. Only R1 twice if you hit them, then charge your R2 a second to roll catch your opponent or punish their parry. if your first R1 hits a shield, go into a charged R2 as it's a parry bait. Slways mix up your R2 charging, make some short, some long, never charge so long it auto strikes. Never let your oppenent get your timing down for those charged R2's. Learn your spacing for L1, as it's a slower attack that is hard to use offensively, best used only if you know your opponent whiffed his attack.

          Sucks that the rolling L1 got nerfed hard because people couldn't figure out how to parry or avoid it.. yet the dual spear still have the same rolling L1. Only thing these are still good for now is combo L1>L2>R2 or R1>L2>R2, and long range on standard attacks. Also, only has A scaling in Dex sharp infused which really should be S given the stat reqs (around the same as Lothric Sword). But eh..

            Try hard rolling attack aside, I'm loving this weapon's paired moveset. I hit L1 two clicks out of range to goad the other guy into attacking, thinking he's going to punish me me. With good enough judgment, 90% of the time the guy will miss his attack and the 2nd hit of the paired moveset whiffs him. Reason for this is because the moveset of the 1st paired attack holds your character in place for about 0.2 seconds longer than other weapons. Deals a good 160~ damage on average in most cases. I then follow up with more L1s if I seem him stagger. If the guy has heavy armor I just roll away. Then back to try hard rolling attacks lol.. Awesome swords.

                I love how half of these comments are hateful towards it and get flooded with "lmao ur salty git gud" statements...
                And the other half is comments trying to defend it then gets shut down by people countering their arguments somehow.
                This community at least has it's debates and isn't just one sided "One wepun one metuh" style like most other games. Thank you Gaben for that well needed Nerf on the AWP.

                  Yeah all this crying cracks me up..tell me what high lv PvP tournament winner has won a tourney with the gotthards..cant name one?? Me neither cuz they're good but not great and so many ways to counter them and that's not even relying on parries..any1 who thinks those swords are op u must honestly really suck..and btw to win with those swords against a "good" player YES u have to have skill to use them or u will get melted and likely parried to death..so then the only attack u can do with them thats unparryable is the L2 spin..oops there goes ur range..fun to use..takes skill and very unpredictable patterns of attacks to beat good players with them..decent weapon nothing great..if u can't beat sum1 who is using these or if ur crying cuz they are "spamming" an attack then freaking parry the crap out of them..if u cant parry or dodge sum1 who is doing the same attack over and over then omg ur really bad...so stop whining and crying everything needs a nerf cuz u cant find a way around it..like the dual UGS's..just don't get hit by the L1..how hard is it to see coming?? Avoid that stupidly slow and predictable L1 and u wont get 3 shot its that simple..Learn how to roll..use a weapon with persaverance..so many ways to counter things but no..yall cry..nerf it From nerf it From i cant avoid a slow as***** L1 from an UGS and i keep dying...GIIIIIIT GUUUUUD!!!!

                    The last time I used these weapons on a saved game they had 400AR 50/50 STR/DEX on my level 183 character. I remember bc I didn't need to level my character after beating NG++ and already had all magic and rings( pre-dlc). I used a refined gem before using these weapons, refined infusement is decent for these twin swords.

                      I'm not sure that's Gothard, why he have two katanas in his belt? Gothard should die and this blackhand can be his killer or someone who tooked his swords after death
