Weapons in Dark Souls 3 are listed on this page. Players may equip up to 3 in the slots for each hand. When developing a build, the player should try to find the weapon that mixes the right amount of damage, bonuses and moveset, alongside stamina consumption and Skills. Weapon classes do not necessarily share the same skills so check each individual weapon page to see its specific skill. If you would like to learn more about each weapon, visit their page, or check out the Combat page for specific explanations on how to master the game.

How to choose a weapon in Dark Souls?

Players create builds around specific weapons that have good movesets, deal significant damage, or are easily obtained. Some players choose weapons for their cosmetic appearance, but in most cases it is advisable to refer to the scaling and upgrading path of weapons to determine if the output is beneficial to the character in pve, pvp or both. The following categories of weapons have details on their base damage, and all individual pages feature infusion charts, with some extending to full moveset videos.

        Dark Souls loves me this I know, For the meta tells me so. Casuals forever wrong, They are weak but I am strong.

          I hope should they ever make Dark souls 4 that they just make an all purpose 'magic hands' unique item that's just a catalyst to cast all of miracles, sorceries and pyromancies with one item, and preferably 'hands' because it'd be really nice to have more casting items that don't require staves and chimes.

            Do the weapon arts trigger if you don't meet the weapon requirements? I want to use the war banner but don't have the dex.

              Meta weapon or not, what's your favorite weapon? Compiling answers to try out fun new builds that may or may not go overlooked.

                Misleading title. It's called "weapon", not "weapons". And the "weapon" is pkcs. No, your opinions are not needed, you casuls suck.

                  This game is awesome, you all just suck, and even if you don't suck at the game, you still suck juicy NARDs pretty hard for getting on here and being pompous, or complaining about something that is a complete waste of time to complain about.

                    Just as predicted. Those casuls who defended ds3 despite all it's flaws and have no idea about how important balance is are getting stomped and chewed up in demon's souls remake. Just delightful.

                      Say goodbye to the cheeses in demon's souls. Some ppl in bluepoint's team suffered the worst aspects of dark souls 3 and those ain't coming in the remake. No more r1 spam for free.
