Moveset refers to the attacks that can be performed when using weapons in Dark Souls.

General InformationEdit

Every weapon has a moveset. Some weapons share a similar moveset while others have one or more attacks that are completely unique.

Weapons that list multiple Attack Types deal a different physical damage type when a particular attack is executed, which is usually the one or two-handed Strong Attack.


The attacks of a weapon's moveset along with controls are listed below.

Note: PC controls listed are defaults and are customizable.
