The Broadsword is a straight sword in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

An accessible sword which inflicts consistent regular damage and high slash damage, making it applicable to a variety of situations.
The horizontal sweeping motion makes this sword effective against multiple enemies.

AvailabilityEdit

CharacteristicsEdit

Like most Straight Swords, the Broadsword is reliable and utilitarian. It has mediocre scaling, excellent speed, and a very versatile moveset. In addition to being starting weapon for the Knight, it is notable both for being the strongest of the widely-available Straight Swords and for being one of the shorter ones (being only as long as a Shortsword).

Do not be misled by the Broadsword's short range and lack of stabbing attacks. It is an exceptionally effective weapon, which, like most Straight Swords, is viable for a character's entire career. Its higher damage is especially noticeable with a few upgrades pumped into it, as it will out-class the Shortsword and Longsword fairly easily. This is especially important early on when it's far more important to bring enemies down quickly than it is to be able to wear them down. Its damage is matched by its rare brothers, the Darksword and Sunlight Straight Sword. They boast better range, weigh considerably more, are substantially harder to get, and consume more stamina when swung. In trained hands, one can be surprised by just how effective this early-game weapon can be. Its main drawback is its short reach. Like the Darksword, the Broadsword can easily chain together its weak and strong attacks.

In PvP, players using Broadswords can be deceptively dangerous. The small size of the Broadsword can lead less-observant players into misreading it as a Dagger, and a high-level character wielding an appropriately high-level Broadsword can easily trick would-be invaders into overextending themselves against what they thought was a weaker opponent.
