Weapon Type Ultra Greatsword
Attack Type Regular / Thrust

The Greatsword is an ultra greatsword in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

One of the gigantic straight greatswords.
Very few have what it takes to wield this incredibly heavy, damage-dealing monster. A favorite of the Knights Berenike, known for their heavy armor, and Black Iron Tarkus.

AvailabilityEdit

CharacteristicsEdit

The Greatsword compares directly to its Catarinan cousin, the Zweihander. It has exactly the same damage and scaling, reach and basic moveset, yet requires 4 extra strength to use, and weighs 2 more. The only real difference is that the Greatsword will have a thrust attack as a strong attack, as opposed to the Zweihander's overhead swing.

The thrust attack has the advantage of dealing Thrust damage, which usually deals more damage than a Regular of same attack rating. The attack is relatively fast, and has a good range, allowing it to be used somewhat like a spear. It works well for counterattacks, and when combined with the Leo Ring, can be absolutely devastating.

Unfortunately, the thrust attack doesn't deal the same incredible poise damage the Zweihander's strong attack does: It is not guaranteed to interrupt Mushroom Parents or Crystal Golems.
