Broken Straight Sword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



A straight sword with a broken blade.

A weapon with no exceptional qualities. Only a mad Hollow would choose to fight with this.

Skill: Stance
While in stance, use normal attack to break a foe's guard from below, and strong attack to slash upwards with a forward lunge. Only, neither move will appear very impressive with a broken sword.

 

Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite
  • All weapons have motion values assigned to each attack, which are modifiers to AR that are associated with the attack being used.
    • The Broken Straight Sword has a motion value of 200 on backstab, 250 on riposte, and 60+225 on Hornet Ring riposte. The motion value of a backstab with a straight sword does not change with Hornet Ring.
  • The Broken Straight Sword is the shortest straight sword, with a range of 29.209xl 1h and a range of 28.5449xl 2h.
  • The Broken Straight Sword has lunging R2 attack that finishes with a sweep.
  • This is essentially a joke weapon, but can get decent enough damage to be viable. Its short reach is the real drawback of the weapon, as it can miss some enemies at close range.

      Emblematic of the series. You start the game as a hollow with a broken sword, and at the end of the world, the end of time itself, it's just you and a Hollow with a broken sword. Only a mad hollow would fight with this... but fight on, he would. The hollow is the true face of mankind. Our strength is our persistence.

        I‘m gonna make a build for pvp that only uses this weapon. Iron round shield, thrall hood, deserter atmor, worker gloves and deserter trousers.
        This build is going to be serious

          Broken straight sword? I forgot this game had an easy mode. If you didn't beat NG+7 at SL1 with a broken left-handed dragon tooth, calamity ring and DK bongos on your first try, you're a drooling infant

            It should be before the boss, right at the start where you spawn so you can do the entire game from start to finish with this for a challenge.

              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.
              LONG MAY THE DARK SOULS COMMUNITY LIVE

                My headcanon fashion for the ashen one; a withered knight of unyielding spirit (like how Gael looks during the end of the world):
                ● Fallen Knight Helm, Deserter Armor, Sunset Gauntlets, Wolf Knight Leggings.
                ● Main hand Broken Straight Sword, off hand Hawkwood's Shield.

                        Memes aside, I do believe there is some use to using this weapon in PvP. The other day someone switched to this and I mistook it for a dagger. Expecting a dagger moveset, I parried too quickly and missed. It ended up costing me my life...

                          If you dual wield blood and poison infusion at +10 with 65 Luck, then you can inflict 67 bleed AND 75 poison per hit.

                          Just make sure that both effects kick in in PvP, (Bleed: 15% health + 100 flat damage, poison: 630 + 6.3%% health over time). If host has 1000 health and doesn't use purple moss clump, then you just need to stay alive and combined effects will deal 943 damage over 90 seconds. At this point u can just use throwing knife/bombs to finish it off.

                              im not ymfah or anything but if you want to make this actually viable, here is what you have to do. first of all, you don't start with the sword, you get it after gundyr. before you fight gundyr you can get a TITanite shard. next step is to beat gundyr and obviously pick up your OP weapon(broken ss). progress as usual through high wall, grab the lightning lube, and kill vordt. you can actually get +3 before you beat vordt if your willing to grind titanite from the enemies here. if your doing a sl1 run with this, grab the raw gem, but if your not, dont worry ab it. all scalings suck poopoo on this weapon so for non sl1 builds, were going to go with a faith build. but of course you cant get lightning gems for a while. so, just keep progressing, beat vordt, undead settlement, estus shards, bone shards etc. once you get to corvian settlement then congrats, you are about to become the mad hollow that uses this weapon. the hardest boss is going to be crystal sage, because we can only use the sword. normally this boss is easy because you can use throwing knives or a bow to kill the fake phantoms. you can do that, but if you really want to challenge yourself, here is what we need to do. DO NOT fight the sage. simply play through the swamp, and get to abyss watchers. abyss watchers is easy because we can just backstab fish. if you don't know the trick to abyss watchers, watch a video on it. its really easy. after you beat abyss watchers, you can get large titanite. im not sure how many large shards are in the catacombs, but gather as many as you can. in the end, if you went up to old wolf bonfire, you sould have + 5. now we fight the sage. it will probably be hard cuz the damage sucks ass, so keep trying. Also thank you for reading this far im sure your eyes are tired by now. you finally beat the sage, and now your at cathedral. run through everything, unlock all shortcuts etc etc. from here we dont fight the deacons, but go back to undead settlement, grab the ashes that let you buy fire resins, and use any souls you have to buy some resins. we dont need alot just enough to kill the rotted ballsacks. ballsacks should be easy enough with +5 and resins. beat the tree, go back to firelink, give the kiln to ludeth, and use vordts soul to make pontiffs left eye. now were on dark souls easy mode. with this ring deacons should be pretty easy. with deacons, try not to backstab anyone except for the main guy that comes out in stage 2. take advantage of the ring, and spam away. once your at stage 2, start backstab fishing. this can be hard becouse of the fatties that spam force at you. somehow make it through and give yourself a pat on the back. now we go back to catacombs, and kill wolnir. there isnt much to say about this guy cuz you just have to get lucky. i dont know of any way to make your guy stronger, so just try your best. an alternative if your having trouble with wolnir is to go fight the dancer. if you havent gotten patches yet, buy the tower key or kill irina of carim. get patches, and buy human pine resin from him. the dancer is weak to dark so we are going to rely on the dark damage rather than the swords damage. OR since you got to catacombs, you can get the ashes there and buy carthus rouge to bleed dancer. we can either smack her ass with our 2 inch dark boi, or give her a nasty period. either way is good but i prefer dark. once you beat dancer, simply go to the next bonfire which is lothric castle. there is a knight right by the bonfire that you can kill. he drops guaranteed large titanite, and sometimes chunks, so grind away people. once you have + 6, go to comsumed kings garden and pick up as many chunks as you can. if you dont have enough for + 9 then go through lothric castle and pick up some chunks. now you have + 9 broken sword, uninfused, and whatever levels you have been progressing. now we can either go fight wolnir but if you really want some damage, go beat oceiros. he isnt hard if you use a shield, but if your the honerable chad that you are, and dont want to cheat, fight him legit. once you beat oceiros, you now can fight those dragon enemies that are chilling in the halls. these guys have a rare chance of dropping lightning gems. sadly, we cant do the infusion because the coals are accessable AFTER wolnir. SO, by now you should be lvl 60 ~ 70, and probably a majoraty of your points in health. try to beat wolnir, somehow manage to beat him, and get into snowy boi place. cross the bridge, and kill that big dog for pontiffs right eye. we have to rely heavily on fast attacks to activate the ring. next up is pontiff sulivan. he is going to be hard, and i dont know of any cheeses, so all i can say is good luck. once you beat pontiff tho it gets easy. progress all the way to anal rodeo and get the giants coal. this is the coal we need for lightning infusions. if you didnt get the lightning gem from the dragon enemies, there is one in church of yorksha bonfire, if you followed the path. grab it, head to firelink, and infuse that bad boi. now we have +9 lighning infused broken sword. go to rosarias, and reallocate your stats. put 30 into health, and the rest into faith. since broken sword has such low stat req we can dump a ton into other things. go and kill aldrich, should be easy as she is weak to lightning. next is the hard part. yhorm. you can use the storm ruler if you want, but if you really want to challenge yourself, here is what you have to do. yhorm has a bove where he grabs both ends of the machete and slams the ground. roll so that you get up right where his arm is. his arm is the same as his head so aim for his arms untill you get the stagger. poke his head, and repeat. yhorm is really slow and easy to dodge so the hard part ab this is just the patience. once you beat yhorm, we go to lothric, progress, and kill thotslayer armour. he's going to be hard because you have lightning infused, but the damage shouldnt be too bad. do your best, progress through archives, and kill the princes. the princes should be really easy because their weak to lighning. with both pontiff rings, spam away on the handicap brothers. finally, we reached the end. the final boss is not easy, but not hard. good luck, and thank you for reading this guide till the end. if you want to do the DLC, just your will to do that tells me that your incredibly talented, and a guide shouldnt be nessesary. Everyone, have fun out there and praise the sun \o/

                                  This weapon is actually not unplayable tbh. Its short but the dmg with some good scaling is honestly acceptable. Though you cannot fire infise it early and expect an easy mode like regular weapon since it hits so bad when split at such small values. Using a raw infusion on the other hand is not too bad really. I tested this as a cleric that doesnt want to invest any points at all into dex but wants the straight seord moveset.

                                    listen here fromsoft, the fact you added such a unbelievable op weapon is way beyond me. i can understand you want to apply to those filthy casuals to gain alot more players but THIS?. this is just something else im honestly furious right now and i feel like i got scammed out of my $60 (even tho i pirated the game), fromsoft this is your final warning, delete this broken weapon existence or else im filing a lawsuit so bad ill make elden ring twice as fake

                                    • Always have one +10 at any build, it's perfect "can opener" very light and almost invisible until it's too late and poor turtle have his shell broken ;)

                                            Tip: Bless/Simple infuse this and switch to it whenever you don't have anything better to do and it will replenish your bars!

                                              It is actually decent. Tested it and won most of the duels. Has ~330 split damage on my dark build (lvl 99), which isn't good but not awful. But otherwise it has a speed and moveset of a straight sword, while being harder to parry (at least nobody who tried could parry it). People also don't expect much of ituntil half of their health is gone in a split second because of sick SS combos

                                                "The Broken Straightsword gains a Large Hidden Damage Multiplier if you manage to get the Durability down to 0 thus further breaking it" This is a joke right?

                                                • technicly, the tooltip isn't wrong, to make this a viable weapon you need a +10 HOLLOW infusion, for luck scaling, and then be hollow for +5 luck, and people who beat the game with this are Mad...
