Dark Souls is always about getting the best weapon so you can kick some PVE & PVP ass. There are weapons that makes you feel dirty to use and could get you hate mail. This is the list of the best weapons in Dark Souls 3.
1. Black Knight Greataxe
Great axes are good this time around and this guy is nasty. For a big weapon it is fast & hits hard too. This weapon is best used for strength builds. What makes this weapon so dangerous is that you can change from strength attacks to quick multiple chain attack that leaps towards your enemy.
Location: Dropped by Dark Knight wielding a greataxe.
- Cannot be infused or buffed
- Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite
- %20 percent more damage against demons
- R2 attack can flatten some enemies
- Cannot be parried if two handed
- Damage can reach 647 AR with STR 40 & 40 DEX
2. Anri’s Straight Sword
One of the few weapons the requires luck to bring it to its true potential. You will sacrifice to use this weapon because you need to level up your luck to 40. This is great for faith builds.
There are so many things this weapon can do:
- It naturally has Blessed infusion Regen HP which will do %10 more damage on the reanimated & prevent skeletons from respawning.
- Hollow infusion luck scaling physical damage
- Apply Carthus Rouge on this weapon will make just about anything and anyone bleed extremely quickly.
Location: Dropped by Arni of Astora or by completing his quest. If you want to make a luck build I would recommend to get this weapon as soon as possible.
3. Gotthard Twinswords
Another nasty weapon in Dark Souls 3. This is a great weapon for those who want all offense. It’s rolling attack is quicker than other weapons & L1 attack uses both sword giving you more damage. This is a little be more advance since you dont have a shield and will learn how to roll the right time. Once you do get the hang of this weapon you will be a force to recon with.
2. Dragonslayer Greataxe
One of the nasty weapons in this game. It can easily kill almost anyone in this game with one shot. It does lightning damage on top of its already heavy damage. This weapon is mainly used for STR/Faith builds. You do need to invest a lot to get to use this weapon like 40 STR investment but it is worth it. At +5 and 40 Str, 40 Dex, 10 Fth it reaches 727 AR which is insane.
It is a great weapon to use in PVE & PVP.
Location: Soul Transposition with Soul of Dragonslayer Armour
1. Profaned Greatsword
The sword that will make anyone quiver in their boots when they see it. Best used for Strength builds. This weapon does serious damage and on top of that uses less stamina than most Greatswords. What is really cool about this sword is that when you charge its heavy attack it becomes engulfed in flames adding +80 in fire damage. At +5 it has 605 AR at 40 Strength and 40 Dexterity, which is scary. This weapon will make your Dark Souls life a lot easier even if you are a noob.
Location: Created with the Soul of Pontiff Sulyvahn.
