Main article: Weapon Types (Dark Souls III)

Curved Swords are a weapon type in Dark Souls III. These weapons are characterized by their fast swing speed, high DPS (Damage per Second) and use of the Slash damage type, making them effective against cloth armor and exposed skin. Several will also inflict the Bleed status effect, most notably those forged in Carthus of the Sands. When these weapons are held in both hands (provided the weapon is not paired), they will not rebound off Shields.

Curved swords are divided into two broad categories based on their movesets: light curved swords and heavy curved swords.

Light curved swords, those of the Scimitar class, have shorter reach and deal lower amounts of damage but are very stamina efficient and have shorter delays between their attacks. They specialize in fast and fluid combos, focusing on inflicting damage through a large number of small attacks. Uniquely, when equipped in the off-hand they retain the ability to strike at targets with the weak attack, and can parry with the strong attack. However, their main weakness is that they lack any hard-hitting attacks and cannot inflict a guard break on enemies equipped with shields.

Heavy curved swords, those of the Falchion class, generally have a longer reach and are harder-hitting than their lighter cousins, but require more stamina to wield and are slower to attack. They rely on strong and deliberate strikes, making each blow count. Its variant of the Spin Slash weapon art differs from that of the light curved sword, and it possesses a standard kick, though it also lacks the ability to parry when equipped in the off-hand.
