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.
  • All weapons have motion values assigned to each attack, which are modifiers to AR that are associated with the attack being used.
    • The Gotthard Twin Swords have 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 Gotthard Twinswords are the longest 1h straight sword, with a range of 36.4043xl on the 1h R1, as well as 42.1088xl on the 2h L1.
  • The Gotthard Twinswords have thrusting R2 attacks.
  • As a Paired Weapon, this weapon can't be two-handed, and will instead gain a new moveset mapped to the L1 button.
  • The weapon is popular in PVP for its long reach and its L1 to Weapon Art true combo.

      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

        You will most often see one of these sheathed behind a black knight shield, because the 2H straight sword moveset is bad and range is more important than AR

                        Charcoal pine bundles were made for this weapon. I love how you just flick the blades on fire in the middle of a combo and continue tickling the enemy with glowsticks.

                          Excellent choice for a mainhand weapon to complement an offhand estoc. Does less damage and has a lower crit modifier than lks, but the extra range makes up for it.

                            it's a pretty good backup at their best they deal around 200 damage but they excel at breaking the guard on shields which is pretty good with defensive players on pvp

                              Probably a really stupid question, but when the AR for Gotthard Twinswords is f.e 400 does that take both swords in consideration or only one? Like when r1 someone without any amor etc, does that one sword deal 400 damage or do both swords when the l1 connects deal 400 damage? I am kinda new for dual weapons and in game its kinda inconsistent damagewhise, so I would like to know for sure how the AR for dual weapons in calculated. Thy in advance

                                People who complain about LKSS are sleeping on this BS sword. Huge phantom range, dumb range in genral, does no brain to use. Id you suck at this game and need some cheesey phantom range kills, since your are a worthless piece of***** use it.

                                • I am playing with this sword with my lvl18 dex char with a shapr infusion and the weapon is pretty strong in PVP. It is extremly good in catching fleeing players and it is very easy to roll catch players. The weapon is stronger than you would expect at first, when you know how it works it is a top tier weapon in PVP. The pure damage without a resin is ok, with resins it is strong. Against bosses I have not tested it much, against the twin princes it is not that strong, but they are hard anyways at lvl18. Buff with

                                        Good backup weapon if you can spare the weight. People don't tend to expect weapons over 5 points of weight as your plan B, and the flurries are something to behold when your opponent expected you to be using your heavier weapon

                                          I dont think people realize just how good the Try- er, I mean GOTThard Twinswords are. First of all, the range is rediculous, longer than the Lothric Knight Sword. With that said, even as popular as these are, people still try to outpace them, just to get caught by the double thrust. And, they attack so quickly that people are so suprised at how many hits they take, especially on the WA. The only downsides are the single hit damage while not buffed and the*****ty infusions

                                                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!)

                                                • Anonymous

                                                  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.

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

                                                                  Quick question: what the *****. The weapon art does piss poor damage, half what a couple of standard slices would. The hell FROM?

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    phantom range of the sting attack is otherworldly. aproximiatly over 2m with a superb connection and no lagging involved.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      Currently running these weapons (I only started playing with the most recent patch, so obviously they were already nerfed), like them a lot. Their moveset allows for some tricky mix-ups with implementation of thrusting attacks, which can be devastating with Leo Ring. Rolling L1 is still incredibly powerful (if not incredibly easy to parry), but there are plenty of players who either don't know how to parry properly or don't parry at all. It's the versatility of the weapon that made me run it for good 60 hours already. And, of course, they look kickass.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        This weapon is not cancerous. It's not even a S tier weapon. The rolling R1 attack is easy to parry or to dodge.

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          What infusions would be best with it, im trying too make bloodborne hunterish build by combining it with the curved wolf great sword, but im unsure about infusion, any suggestions?

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            After the nerf, the number of the user decreases drastically (lol).

                                                                            Gotthard Twinsword itself is still a pretty solid weapon even after the nerf. But now, it has a couple of hard-counters such as long range weapons like Halberds or Gargoyle Flame Spear and Hyper-Armor oriented weapons (e.g Greatswords).

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              Even with the roll attack nerfed, I still think it has an overall amazing moveset. It's hardly "ruined" imo. At least there's less for people to complain about now with its roll attack sped down.

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    You guys just suck at fighting against this weapon. Me and a few others can manage to win without any problems. Cancer? You guys are the main reason why other veterans are leaving the game not the meta weapon users. Really high damage with buff? Use a duel charm. These work well against buffers and should be used for this situation. Instant stun lock? Try hyper armour b****! Phantom range? Well this is a very good point but the other straight swords have this as well and i don't see you complaining about the shortsword or the Irithyll straight sword. This is Dark Souls, expect the game to be hard. Finally, I have one more thing to say:G I T G U DF.Y.II am a Old Wolf Curved Sword/ Painting Guardian's Sword user so don't bother saying "Oh, you're just one of those guys that use this weapon so now you're defending it so it doesn't get nerfed" crap. I don't care if this weapon gets nerfed or not, it won't affect me the slightest. I just want everyone to stop complaining and enjoy the game for once.

                                                                                    • Anonymous
