For the Dark Souls III variant, see Black Blade.

The Berserker Blade is a katana in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

The katana of a berserker, by its name.
The thick, shiny black blade cuts exquisitely. Its origins are unknown, but at some point the blade became known by this name.


The Berserker Blade can be found in Belfry Sol. It is dropped by the Mad Warrior that uncommonly spawns (resting at a bonfire a few times should cause it to respawn). However, acquiring the Berserker Blade also requires that the player be a member of the Bell Keepers covenant, as the phantom will not spawn unless the player is in the covenant. Note that the Mad Warrior will spawn less frequently the more he is killed.

Alternatively, it can be dropped by the Prowlers found in Brume Tower.
