Dark Souls III has over 50 new weapons, gear, and equipment as compared to the previous installment in the Dark Souls franchise. Which is the Best weapons to Use in Dark Souls 3? This is one of the most debatable queries among Dark Souls community, and to help them sort out this billion dollar query I decided to sort out the huge list of weapons available in the game and presents a Top 10 Lethal Weapons which Dark Souls III players must try. So without any further ado, here is the list.
Top 10 Lethal Weapons in Dark Souls 3
Crystal Sage Rapier
The Crystal Sage Rapier is a Thrusting Sword with tiny crystals scattered across its blade, used by the Crystal Sages for self-defence. Even though this Weapon cannot be Infused or Buffed you can still use this efficiently together with Symbol of Avarice, Covetous Gold Serpent Ring, and either a Rusted Coin or a Rusted Gold Coin.
- Location: Transposed from Soul of a Crystal Sage
Claw is a weapon favored by the intelligence of an eastern land. The lacerations it inflicts do not mend easily. If you want to play it like Wolverine then go ahead and slash them all with these Claws. You can infuse and buff these Claws and Reinforce with Titanite. It works best when you are trying to use parry attacks against your opponent.
- Location: Beneath the central platform patrolled by Dark Masses in Consumed King’s Garden.
Pontiff Knight Curved Sword
Pontiff Knights Curved Sword are the swords wielded by the Pontiff’s knights, frigid spirits that linger in Irithyll. This Sword requires Twinkling Titanite to strike twice horizontally, with the second hit having a large ice blade which extends range significantly.
- Location: Dropped by Pontiff Knights in Irithyll or bought from Greirat once he returns from his first outing.
When the Drang Knights disbanded, they scattered across the lands as sellswords. They quickly became known for shieldless, aggressive tactics that struck fear in the hearts of men. Bash foes with a large spinning motion, and utilize momentum to transition into an overhanded strong attack smash.
- Location: Looted at the Cathedral of the Deep: next to one of the chained-Giants.
This Greataxe, a favorite among demons, contains the strength of fire. The demons, born of Chaos, harbor fire, and yet they are twisted and malformed, such that they were never meant to be. You need to reinforce it with Titanite Scale for the best use. This weapon cannot be infused or Buffed.
- Location: Transposable from Soul of a Demon
Irithyll Straight Sword
Straight sword bestowed upon the Outrider Knights of the Boreal Valley. This weapon is enshrouded in frost and causes frostbite. Every Outrider Knight one day devolves into a beast, constantly hounded by Pontiff Sulyvahn’s black eyes. One of the Fast weapons which use the normal attack to break a foe’s guard from below, and strong attack to slash upwards with a forward lunge.
- Location: Dropped by Outrider Knight in the Undead Settlement
Greatsword of the Abyss watchers which is a typically paired with an unusual dagger. Must try this weapon as it provides 20% bonus damage against Abyssal foes and is upgradable with Titanite Scale to +4. When dual wielding, user can perform a diving low spin attack(similar to Boss attack). It can Deflect an attack if you timed properly and follow up with a critical hit, executed with the dagger.
- Location: Created with Soul of the Blood of the Wolf
A unique katana characterized by the fine craftsmanship of an eastern land where it was forged. This is one of the weapons which can be found early in the game and if you are holding stance to rapidly execute a lunging slash with a normal attack or a deflecting parry with the strong attack you can take any Enemy down.
- Location: Dropped by Sword Master Saber just outside Firelink Shrine
This is a strange weapon found among malformed inhabitants of the Profaned Capital. The Profaned Flame was triggered by the curse of these women, relatives of a certain oracle, but despite their culpability, they went on living, without any cares. If you buffed this weapon with Feast Bell then each hit will recover 24 HP. Its skill is Feast Bell which can be executed by holding up Axe and wave to emit a solemn chime to temporarily make weapons lacerating.
- Location: Dropped by a giant strange hand-faced enemy by the toxic swamp in Profaned Capital.
Fume Ultra Greatsword
One of My Favorite weapon in Dark Souls 3 as this twisted sword is the heaviest of all ultra greatswords, resembles black slate. This weapon, said to belong to a traitor from long ago, was so heavy that it found no owner, and became a forgotten relic of history. If you use it’s weight to lunge forward with a low stance and increased poise, and follow with a crushing strong attack then your enemies are down in one blow. Make sure you use this weapon once in the game.
- Location: Dropped by Knight Slayer Tsorig underneath the Smoldering Lake
