*When infused with Magic: 245 physical dmg/265 magic dmg, with Fire: 312 physical dmg/312 Fire dmg, with Lightning: 325 physical dmg/325 Lightning dmg

"One of the gigantic straight greatswords. As the name suggests, the Zweihander is held with two hands, but its wielder must still be inhumanly strong."
"It is this great weight that sends foes flying when hit solidly."

Acquired from:

 

  • Obtained from a corpse in the Graveyard area, in front of one of the large tombstones near Firelink Shrine.

 

Moveset:

  • When wielding this sword one or two handed, press R1 for a 180° sweep and R2 for a very Havel like over-the shoulder smash that may be chained with another press of R2.
  • After rolling you may perform a thrust attack with R1.
  • If you are running and press R1, you will take three more steps forward and perform the R2 attack.
  • The jump attack is a jump followed by the R2 attack.

 

Hints and Tips:

  • Very good, high damage weapon for both PvE and PvP, but its slow swing speed can make it challenging to use.
  • Deals very similar damage as the Greatsword, but its R2 attack has got more range and is much more harmful to poise than the Greatsword thrust. Used two-handed an unblocked R2 attack knocks most enemies flat or staggers them, exceptions are the big guardians in Anor Londo, Stone Knights/Guardians, Titanite Demons and bosses.
  • It gets better stat scaling as a normal weapon, but starts falling behind the Greatsword on the special upgrade paths.
  • A powerful early weapon. Just grab it as soon as you can, and level up accordingly.
