- Main article: Weapon Types (Dark Souls III)
Daggers are a type of weapon in Dark Souls III. Daggers are characterized by their fast attack speed and high critical damage. Daggers are one of the smallest weapon types. Careful tactical consideration should be taken by the player while using these weapons as you need to be very close to successfully attack. Basic "hit and run" strategy and critical attacks are a hallmark of this weapon type. Most daggers receive the "quickstep" weapon skill granting them increased movement even in normally bogged areas such as swamps and deep water. In addition to quicker movement, the quickstep skill grants the player increased invincibility frames. This skill can be enhanced by the Carthus Bloodring granting even more invincibility frames.
