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.

      I really wish someone could remove the comments of the human failure saying, Dark Souls 3 was dead (24 Jul 2021 21:18 Anonymous, 24 Jul 2021 21:16 Anonymous, 12 Jul 2021 00:01 Anonymous). They are ruining the aesthetic of this site.

        PvP is good? Don't make me laugh. This community is as ignorant as it is toxic. Fromsoft don't give a **** about the online integrity of their games as long as people keep forking money for their pay-to-win DLCs. Elden Ring will be just another clone of Bloodborne. Just as Ds3 was. Live with it

            Elden Ring should bring back Dragon Weapons, and Bonfire Ascetics, and Hexes, and Twinblades, and so on and so forth

              I strongly recommend you all to give the winged knight twinaxes a go. It's a solid endgame weapon that can tear apart pve and pvp enemies alike.

              Instead of being a total a$$ about a weapon of choice like certain pkcs fanatic, i'm gonna tell you to invest time and dedication with a weapon that rewards agresiveness and strategy altogether. Once you do, you will experience a very different playthrough.

                Unless I'm mistaken, the Follower Torch doesn't appear on this page. You have to click on "Show Ashes of Ariandel Weapons Only" for it to appear. Anyone want to fix this? It's basically a mace, even though the game calls it a torch.

                  The Broken Straight Sword is the best weapon in the game and if you disagree, you are a filthy casul! None of these other shít "weapons" are nearly as good as the Broken Straight Sword. If you dont use the Broken Straight Sword, jump off a cliff, you filthy filthy casul!!!

                    Feel free to disagree, but in my personal oppinion PKCS is the best weapon in the game, because of its fast attack speed and high range.
