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.

        Stop defending the objectively unbalanced and lazy work over this game's combat system. Yes, you can use whatever you want, but you will be greatly punished for not using straight swords, curved swords, daggers, rapiers or any other weapon that doesn't imply r1 spam for 3/4 of your stamina bar. Why? Because of the stupid idea of mixing the slow and strategic gameplay of dark souls with the frenzied and braindead spam gameplay of bloodborne. Stop defending unbalance or you will pay for it in the next generation.

          I don't know why I waste my time with this game anymore. Perhaps I seek the same difficulty I used to encounter while PvP and PvE'ing, but there is literally nothing which has caused me to ever pause the onslaught of my perfectly spaced and timed attacks or my deep phycological warfare which I force upon every single lesser being who taints this game. It is bad enough that many unworthy individuals even consider playing this series, let alone actually starting the game and routing (very poorly routing, I will add) through the sacred dungeons and levels this game offers. Lothric belongs to me. Lordran belongs to me. When you step into my game, Dark Souls, you belong to me.

          I grow weary of the text, HOST OF EMBERS DESTROYED, or, YOU WIN, displayed on my screen each time I even consider pressing my R1 button. I will always be looking for a worthy challenge, but I know that the lot of you can not rise to the task of defeating me. Gather your embers to come and be blessed by the battle you aren't worthy for, but that I shall grace you with even still, so that you might be known as courageous; albeit, courageous fools. There seems to be only one who has graced this page with his or her text, who I, my supreme and worthy self, might consider to be worthy of calling a true rival to myself.

            After winning every single fight in PvE and PvP and left this game for 5 + months to take a break since I realized that I have reached the highest skill gap in this game. I came back to see if people were able to beat me but it was not the case. You may learn to glitch estus drinking but I still own you. What's wrong u wanted to cheese me and got owned again? u wanna cry? maybe delete every file you have and start low. Play the game without PvE help you scrub. After that contact me here and write " I am bad at this game could u teach me" Maybe I will and maybe not. This is important you need. Either u git gud or you will end up getting destroyed by tutorial gundy again like the casual you are. I think I can clearly state without a doubt I have become an professional in this game and my next goal will be to become a dark souls coach.

                Can we talk about the fact that out of 19 weapons called "X Greatsword" or "Greatsword of X", only 8 are actually greatswords?

                  I beat the entire game with the triple weapon, the Butcher Knife, which looks like a sword, but is actually an Axe. But really it's a good PVE weapon but don't even try PVP, even a +10 Butcher Knife is useless in PVP
