The Smelter Sword is an ultra greatsword in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

An ultra greatsword forged from the soul of the Smelter Demon. Its blade bears the strength of terrible flames, a latent power unleashed by a strong attack.
The earth spouted fire, and a beast arose from the flames. The short-sighted king was incinerated by the creature in one swing, and his castle devoured in a sea of flames.
Effect: special attack (strong attack)


Whilst being one of the heaviest weapons in the game, as well as possessing a relatively slow moveset, the Smelter Sword is quite powerful in the right hands. It also features a unique moveset, where each strong attack is a combustion-inducing strike, creating a small, fiery explosion when the sword makes contact. Strong attacks consume 10 durability each; this can be partially mitigated with use of the Bracing Knuckle Ring variants.

Unlike most weapons, the Smelter Sword cannot be infused.


  • Powerstancing the Smelter Sword with the Aged Smelter Sword allows for a large mixed red and blue fire explosion.
  • Like the Aged Smelter Sword, the explosion of the special attack is only triggered if the player hits a solid object or enemy.
  • The special attack can be cancelled by backstepping.
