Greatswords are a type of weapon in Dark Souls.

OverviewEdit

Greatswords continue the natural evolution process from Dagger to Straight Sword, by sacrificing speed for additional attack power. Each strike with these weapons has the wielders full weight behind them to maximize the damage they do. Because so much force and effort is required with each swing, the speed of the strikes is much slower than with smaller weapons, which means they are not very effective for attempting critical hits with.

These weapons are designed simply to overpower foes, and even though the strikes may be slow, the hits are so powerful that they often still stagger foes long enough to land additional hits. The size of the weapons, and large arc of their swing, also means that they are very good for crowd control, or for tracking evasive opponents.

In the Prepare to Die edition, Greatsword Two handed R1s swing slower, making it hard to get people into stagger combo with them, but there is no way to offset this while playing online.

Below is a list of all the Greatswords in Dark Souls, and their base stats. Clicking on any of the names of the Greatswords will give you detailed information about that weapon on a separate page.
