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.

      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?

                if anyone think splitleaf , greatsword , sellswords , onikiri’ , UGS , thrusting swords and curved swords are cancer , go try izalith’s staff 2 handed 66 STR with iron flesh and just whip that a$$ with a broom stick rocking the 300 average one-handed damage , if you’re not a fan of PvP , make a low level with the minimum int/faith and put all the rest in strenght , deal with pickle-pee crow and behind the sanctuary for +2 off the start tree branch that hit like a great sword or even an ultra now you can name your character like mine *GandalfTheSlayer* and whoop everyone’s a$$ with a long stick , if you’re wondering how it is actually good... let me tell ya little Jimmy , i’ve been hacked twice in a week with tons of hate mail doing PvP with this ridiculous build , everyone expect you to be a mage but you’re just an old man on a rampage after loosing at Bingo

                  I've recently restarted to play and will be going for a dex build and was wondering if Onikiri and Ubadachi is a good weapon for that build and if so if there is any good dex weapons to use before I get it? I started as a mercenary so I still have my twin blades to use if need be.

                          The Battleaxe of the Deep, or Deep Battleaxe, is missing from all lists, and has an incomplete entry when using the search bar. Please fix.

                              Want a greatsword setup that can parry? Take the Curse Ward Greatshield when using the Farron Greatsword.
