The Executioner's Greatsword is a greatsword in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Greatsword of a debauched executioner used for beheadings.
This sword retains a keen memory of its executioner's duty, and absorbs FP from each fallen foe.
Skill: Stomp
Use one's weight to lunge forward with a low stance and increased poise, and follow with strong attack for a spinning slash.


Found at the graveyard in the Cathedral of the Deep.

From the Cleansing Chapel, make way into the graveyard and proceed in the general straightforward direction until reaching the other end. A small enclosed area with several corpses and some loot can be found, one of which is the sword. Upon picking it up, however, the corpses, some of which are infested, will come to life and ambush the player.


The Executioner's Greatsword deals exclusively strike damage, making it an effective choice when facing heavily-armored opponents, as heavy, metallic armor often has a notable weakness to strike damage.

It shares the same moveset as the Bastard Sword, but has a different variant of the "Stomp" skill, which is not typically seen on greatswords with this skill; instead, it is similar to the one used by the Greatsword, but without the knockback, though it will still sunder an enemy's poise on hit.
