The Pickaxe is a great hammer in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A Pickaxe used for mining. Not intended as a weapon, but packs a powerful punch.
This tool designed to crush hard rock, can easily puncture weaker forms of armor.

DescriptionEdit

This great hammer has a pretty small range and a very limited moveset; the only horizontal swings being two handed strong attacks. However, it is great in narrow hallways and can do thrusting damage. Overall it is good for two-handers who attack vertically, but this also means it is very hard to get a good hit on nimble opponents, particularly enemy players.

The combination of the durability mechanics of Dark Souls II (where a weapon takes durability damage for every frame inside an entity) and the weapon's moveset (mostly overhead swings that stall after each hit), mean that the Pickaxe will break exceptionally fast. This is particularly relevant for the PC version, where the weapon is virtually unusable.

AvailabilityEdit

Found in Brightstone Cove Tseldora. To obtain this weapon, an Enslaved Pig must be guided from the first bonfire to the chapel in Lower Tseldora, and consume a small group of mushrooms.
