The Bastard Sword is a greatsword in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

A widely-used heavy greatsword normally wielded with two hands.
Broad horizontal sweeping attacks make this sword effective against multiple enemies, but unwieldy in narrow spaces.
Skill: Stomp
Use one's weight to lunge forward with a low stance and increased poise, and follow with a strong attack for an upward slash.

AvailabilityEdit

CharacteristicsEdit

The Bastard Sword is a greatsword that specializes in horizontal and vertical slashing attacks. It has a similar moveset to the Claymore, though it lacks the latter's thrusting attacks, which limits its reach and makes it difficult to use in corridors.

However, it possesses superior Strength scaling, allowing it to deal high potential damage when two-handed. It is also one of only two greatswords with the Stomp weapon art, and the only one with the upward slash variant (the other, the Executioner's Greatsword, has the horizontal spinning slash), allowing it to be used to win trades against other players who are using similar-sized weapons. For these two reasons, the Bastard Sword can be quite powerful in the right hands with a Heavy infusion.
