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 sword is the absolute best!!!!!!! You only need to use one single button to win every single fight and it's R1, none of you filthy casuals can deny this. The rest of the Weapon, as well as the noobs who use them, ARE TRASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        When you see people using acronyms so you go on a scavengers hunt to find the weapon they're talking about

          Just completed a PvE run of bows only (crossbows, greatbows, standard bows). The DLC was surprisingly EZ - the hardest boss in the game hands down was Deacons of the Deep (did not use DLC's Milwood great bow w/ AoE weapon art to cheese). Highly recommend playthrough

            I wonder which one would be the most overpowered with a tumblebuff. So far ive tried the aquamarine dagger with cmw and it does like 300 per hit. Can someone tell me which one would be best? Maybe glaive with crystal infusion?

              It's funny to me, that almost whatever weapon page I visit, the comment section will always be full of people praising that weapon. Claiming that this one is the*****, that it is the best, Jerry, the best, and how they've rekt and shrekt hordes of dishonorable scrubs with it in PvP. Not that I mind at all, and I'm no different myself, but still, lol

                  In ds1 and ds2 I created dex builds that used katanas. However, the katanas in this game don't have good scaling (apart from the chaos blade). What could I use instead of a katana?
