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. You can use this Equipment & Spell Checklist to keep track of what you have

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.

        So, lets make things clear. The only people who actually need to git gud, are the people who start b*tchin’ and moanin’ about others for using a specific weapon. If you can’t beat someone because they killed you with an op weapon, you shouldn’t start hating it and everyone who uses it. If someone keeps spanking you with the same weapon and the same tactic, I think you don’t even deserve the right to call the people who use it noobs. If you disagree, git gud.

          man why are there so many weapons that are just copies of each other with different stats, smh no real weapon variety every weapon in a class is mostly the same (with few exceptions)

            If you're looking for the genuine best weapons in the game, look no further. Gael's greatsword, Frayed blade, Friede's greatscythe, Farron greatsword, Aquamarine dagger, Onyx Blade, Demon's Scar, and the best of all weapons, Valorheart. You may not agree, but these weapons all have unbelievably good performance. Valorheart and Farron Greatsword compliment eachother too well also. Demon scar builds are everywhere, Friede's can make most heavy weapons feel awful since it matches that super armor with low poise, racks up frostbite and has shieldpierce for free with good range. Aquamarine dagger is notable due to it's incredible rollcatching, hyper-low weight, and great range with straightsword damage at dagger swing speed. Onyx blade and frayed blade are well known at this point so no need to tell you why they rock. If someone tries to say PKCS, just put a shield in their face and watch them struggle, or use Valorheart. Yes. Valorheart always beats R1 spam-heros.

                  Don't say weapons suck til you try them. I love the following: Crow Talons, Choas Blade (left hand) and Frayed Blade (right hand), Black knight greataxe, and I used the PKCS once, i did not like it at all! It is just not my style.

                    All I see are over 100 + trash icons who have no purpose in-game. Except one, PKCS. This beauty, this swag, this skill, non other weapon can even come close to this. My PKCS is literally the best, I have faced non better than me, since the majority is trash in this game, you are good at killing NPC but not a 100% pure skill player like me who made top players look like some dark souls mature. Do you think you are good ? get down casual. Get down. Get down. After 4 years some man child wants to force GS and UGS into higher PvP. You are cringe and*****. GS is the definition of braindead in the highest skill gape, all you do is wait and poise trade. A retard would of course trade, but a perfect player like me, can see the flaws of every class. You using lapps set? = you are trash, you have no swag, style, you are a drone who tries to copy a cringe-worthy piece of rubbish, who thinks who is good at this game. Maybe you are lucky enough to face me once, to learn and maybe note some stuff to improve rather being bad at the game, you swagless *****. Every downvote comes from casuals who I owned, every like from people who want to enter my covenant

                      There's like 167 (I think,too lazy to check again) weapons in this game and in pvp 89% of people I meet use Ringed knight paired greatsword and then only 0.1% of those I've met didn't just spam the l1 combo,am I just unlucky or is this just the most used weapon in the game?

                        I stopped playing ps4 cause I was winning too much and dealing with too many salty scrubs. Where's the strength of your PKCS now? Your Demon Scar build got destroyed again? poor baby... maybe your brain melted due to the blaze my existence radiates Your hyper armor weapon "mixups" (if they can even be called that) only resulted in you getting outspaced again? bet you are as slow as that weapon cant actually hit me with your free aim crossbow? guess your eyes are crossed as much as that bow Your magic & straight sword combo got defeated before you knew the fight began? magic scrub. read a book an invest in some actual intelligence That spear isn't compensating for anything...
