The Cathedral Knight Greatsword is an ultra greatsword in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Ultra greatsword wielded by the knights of the Cathedral of the Deep.
Highly destructive if intolerably heavy.
Its blade is flattened for use as a strike weapon, but the point at the end allows for thrusting.
Skill: Stomp
Use one's weight to lunge forward with a low stance and increased poise, and follow with a strong attack for a spinning slash.



The Cathedral Knight Greatsword is essentially a Strength-oriented variant of the Greatsword. It possesses an almost identical moveset, save for a thrusting strong attack that is useful for counter-hits and fighting in corridors. It is also significantly lighter, at 15 units, and deals Strike damage with most of its attacks. However, it has a shorter reach and falls short in attack rating, struggling to reach the 600-range without heavy stat investments and infusion with a Heavy Gem.

If one manages to catch another player with the two-handed weak attack, it is possible to chain into the thrust while they are stunned, rather than another weak attack. This can allow players to deal more damage with a two-attack combo.
