Straight Swords are a Weapon type in Dark Souls 3. Straight Swords are the most basic type of weapon, but have solid reach and damage, fast attack speed and the Skill Stance, along with other versatile Weapon Arts. All these attributes make this weapon class a popular choice for beginners and experts and a good choice for both PvP and PvE.

      name: guts
      armor: fallen knight set
      pants: full of piss
      sword: long
      That range was too long to be a sword. Too long, too fast, too strong, and too meta, it was more like a large middle finger to strength weapons.

        Here's to hoping that Elden Ring handles this class in a more balanced way. Although since its built off Dark Souls 3 I don't have high hopes.

          I don't even think I've ever used one of these in anything but my first playthrough where I switched to executioner's GS as soon as I got it

            Proof of the massive ignorance that is known as Fromsoft. And you guys thought they were decent developers. Miyazaki didn't even want to make this one. That's why it's just a clone of Bloodborne

              can't believe people actually cries about the straight sword

              come on guys if someone is R1 spamming just parry or get away from there, tada super easy
              straight swords works well for roll catching anyways, better if its longer like Gotthard's
              don't cry about the weapon, it might be fault of your skill seriously

                  To those why try to say straight swords are not OP when they definetly are: i'm handing the dancer her ass with an UNLEVELED knight and an UNUPGRADED, RAW INFUSED broadsword. I'm close to kill her before going to undead settlement.

                    Straight swords gets the most hate because they reward too much the r1 spam, wich shouldn't be viable in a souls game. Then the spammers hate about those things that punishes r1 spams like parries or perseverance. Make up your mind, ppl.

                      So which straight sword hast the longest reach? (with and without Phantom hitbox) I'm not going to use one, because I don't really like them that much but I'm curious about the stupid range some of these get and if they are equal to greatswords sometimes?

                        I hate straight swords not because they're bad but because there are such cooler weapons but you decide to use a metal sheet

                          The only reason i would ever touch this class for use in pvp is for a solaire cosplay (then again solaire is so nice, he would never pvp), not becuase it is bad, but becuase it feels so overpowered, im not dissing on it, but i generally dislike using the meta, which at the moment is straight sword and poise monster two handed ultras, that and i dont want to become another r1 spammer
