Main article: Weapon types

Katanas are a type of weapon in Dark Souls.

OverviewEdit

Katanas are one of the better all-round balanced weapons in the game, with a good combination of slash and thrust attacks. Their range and speed also fall somewhere between Greatswords and Straight Swords so they can be used effectively at all ranges. Because the blades on these weapons are so sharp, they are all also capable of inflicting Bleed damage, so successive strikes can be deadly to any foe. The sharpness of their blades is also their main downfall, because they all have relatively low durability compared to other weapons; as long as you keep them repaired, however, there is no situation they cannot be useful in.

When equipped in the offhand, Katanas have the ability to Parry, albeit with the same effectiveness and parrying window as a medium shield . This makes this type of weapon effective in dual-wielding builds.
