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.

      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.

              In a war between tryhards and friendlies, the tryhards would probably lose because one person would start trying to murder everyone because one guy accidentaly spitleaf'd him because of lockon shenanigans and then the entire tryhard army would devolve from there

                When I use the halberd: absolutely useless

                Other players when they use the halberd: literal masters of poise and hyper armor frames

                  Bait and negativity aside, with Elden Ring on its way I pose this question: What's your favorite weapon? Doesn't matter which game, I just wish to know what your fondest one to use is.
