DaS3 - Greatsword

Greatsword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



This ultra greatsword, with its thick blade, is one of the heaviest of its kind.

Highly destructive if intolerably heavy.

There would appear to be some credence to the rumors that this sword tested the true limits of human strength.

Skill: Stomp
Use one's weight to lunge forward with a low stance and increased poise, and follow with strong attack for a spinning slash.

 

Notes and Tips

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite
  • Gets bested by the Black Knight Greatsword on a 40/40 build. BKG has 612 AR, Refined Greatsword has 590 AR. However, the Greatsword can be buffed.
  • The Greatsword benefits greatly from Hollow and Raw infusions.
  • Does poorly with physical infusions on standard quality builds.
  • Hollow Greatsword with 60 STR/60 Dex/45 LCK has 673 AR.
    A Heavy Greatsword with 60 STR/10 DEX has 619 AR and should
    always be better than hollow infused considering the massively lower
    stat cost and comparable damage.
  • The longest Ultra Greatsword in the game.
  • 66/65/94 on STR/DEX/LCK has 701 AR (731 AR two-handed).
  • This weapon is a reference to the Dragonslayer, the iconic sword wielded by Guts from the manga series Berserk.
  • 28/10 - STR/DEX - 446 AR 1h, 502 AR 2h - Min Reqs
  • 40/10 - STR/DEX - 500 AR 1h, 522 AR 2h - Str Softcap
  • 60/10 - STR/DEX - 522 AR 1h, 545 AR 2h - Str Softcap
  • 99/10 - STR/DEX - 556 AR 1h, 556 AR 2h - Str Hardcap
  • Works well with Dark/Chaos infusions
  • 28/10/30/30 - STR/DEX/INT/FTH - 235/471 AR 1h, 264/471 AR 2h, - Min Reqs + Dark/Chaos Softcaps
  • Dispite being named "greatsword" it is in fact an Ultra Greatsword and not from the Greatsword class, although its moveset is roughly the same as the Bastard Sword, while greatly exaggerated. 

 

 

Location/Where to Find

  • Looted from a corpse on top of a broken bridge in Farron Keep. Go straight ahead from the first bonfire until you reach a broken bridge, look behind you and you will see another piece of broken bridge and a body holding an item, that item is the Greatsword (video location).

      No other weapon has given me the same satisfaction like the DS3 version of this and the Hunter Axe from Bloodborne.

      It’s 2h R1 vertical attack chain feels akin to opening a black hole of destruction on the patch of land in front of you.

      It’s less of an attack and more of a challenge thrown to any enemy foolish enough to try to approach you from the front and well, if they approach from the rear, they’re going to get pancaked by the same R1 swing as the front on some 180 degree ****ery.

      The true genius behind the weapon is the second R1 in the R1 combo. Once the enemy catches the first R1, lifting the sword for the second R1 counts as a full second attack even though it is basically instantaneous and both will combo basically any enemy for 2 more R1s and likely a stance break. Every R1 after the first will also hit large enemies twice.

      Just make sure you have enough stamina to swing with free abondon because my god, the power…

                        • If they gave you one more dex/required one less you could use this as a sl1 warrior. You can still use it with the carthus milking but it takes a while to get to the catacombs.

                              66 STR heavy infused two-handed with power within this baby gets a whopping 811 AR unsplit on my Tarkus cosplay. Combine with lingering dragoncrest ring +2 and a s h i t load of health/stamina this thing becomes downright terrifying

                                wow i cant believe this weapon is awesome in all three dark souls games, but i think its best iteration is here. also the club, still viable 10 years in all souls games 10 years after DS1 released!

                                  Should also mention that this is the only UGS whose second hand combos with third, meaning any hit is a two hit combo which makes this one of the best UGS for reliable 2 hit combo. WHICH is ****ing amazing.

                                    Probably my favorite weapon in the game. No Dex needed for a Deprived, and lovely Strength scaling when Heavy Infused. Much better than it was in DS2, since lock-on actually ****ing works now and the heavy attack is a true horizontal sweep instead of DS2's janky back-handed uppercut. People claim it's terrible for PVP, but if you learn to play with the timing of your swings it can be quite effective. Nothing like a charge-delayed heavy to slap the roll-spammer.

                                          Here's a little trivia;
                                          The Greatsword that Guts uses is essentially the cursed Greatsword of Artorias, but bigger, thicker and way better.

                                            I love this sword. It stun-locks nearly everyone and it's easy to use. Great against invaders and heavily armored opponents

                                              This weapon is dog ****, it literally will hit right next to the enemy when your locked on and completely miss, how the **** do you miss with this thing? Garbage as **** game

                                                With heavy infusion and 66 STR It deals 676 physical dmg while 2H which is among highest AR in the game. Wield it with pride fellow Strugglers.

                                                    The creator of Berserk, inspiration of my favourite game series of all time. Thank you Miura, Rest in Peace.

                                                      Considering the actual circunstances, (Kentaro Miura the Author of "Beserk" has passed away) i think it's a good idea if EVERYONE (or most of the players) make a "Guts Run" for one day. What do you think guys?

                                                        The best infusion for this weapon isn't heavy, it's hollow infusion.

                                                        Really, it outperforms refined and boosts the weapon's ar even more when hollow.

                                                          Aside from guts being a fave childhood character didn't like this sword at first... Now I must say used properly it is just so effective in pve and pvp... Bring a fast wep to swap to though

                                                              god, I know this wiki is no stranger to bad advice, but why the hell would you raw infuse a weapon that requires 28 strength to use in the first place?

                                                                This is undeniably the best ultrasword until mid-late game. I'd recommend starting as knight, running straight to the swamp for this beast of a weapon, then dumping all stats into into strength and only strength until level 35 or so. Then focus on health and stamina, but those stats don't really matter much. All that matters once you slap a heavy gem onto this big boi is pumping your strength up to 66 so you can crush all foes with ease.

                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                  This probably doesn’t matter, but on a late-stage quality build (60 each to Str/Dex/Int/Fth) it seems to lose barely any damage with a Blessed Infusion, compared to Refined. I think it went from something like 655 to 608 (on a +10). I’ll have to take a look when I log back on. It gains about 400 damage from scaling, compensating for the reduced base damage.

                                                                  • Anonymous
