      Fun fact: The dodge attack does the same amount of damage as a regular light swing, and sometimes more if the enemy is weak to thrust

        I am on my first game in DS and i found black knight on beeginning but he was one shoting me and was really tanky, so I baited him down the tower and then made him drop down the ladder and then he just ran of the edge :D Got this sword and thought he was something like mini bos but turns out no

          "But its slow" those who have come to the greatsword category, are completely missing the point of the builds and players who love using the greatsword builds.

            One of the absolute best weapons for a strength build in the entire game . I love this weapon and it has carried me through the entire game . The damage is utterly insane . Absolute beast !

                    I got 4 of the Black Knight Greatswords in a row. I thought it was a high chance weapon of dropping. Or my game just bugged out.

                      i dont like this things slow moveset because it can get you killed very easily if you miss, so i normally go for the Greataxe because of how amazing it is

                      • Anonymous

                        meh this things noice but the best BKW is the greataxe (reach, speed, damage, scaling, AESTHETICS) so yeah always go for the greataxe because it has the same amount of scaling and its much faster and has same range too

                          One of my favorite weapons. The two handed r2, while admittedly impractical for pvp, is still so satisfying to land, especially when you fling someone off of a high ledge to their death. Who needs airplanes to fly anyway

                            I have this weapon and the black knight great axe both +5 and this weapon do more damage than the great axe despite the stats on the great axe being better, anyone knows why?

                                these swords are so op early game but I wish there was an wasy way to get one (through higher level combat) without a percentage, note I very much dislike using the master key, are there any suggestions?

                                  i hate the look of a lot of these weapons. For example i hate this sword and the dragon great sword because they look like paddles instead of actual swords

                                    I went on a blind run as a warrior and got this I wasn't even trying to get it I was just messing around and killed him :0

                                      I remember when I defeated the Parish Black Knight with the Dex-focused Wanderer... and the bastard dropped this weapon. I thought he did it out of sheer spite.

                                        fine for starter sword, along with drake sword. dropped by black knight in Undead Burg. RB all the way, RT isn't worth it.

                                          Why would you ever pick this sword when the normal black knight sword has exactly the same AR 330 but is like 40% faster and lighter , just why:)?

                                            I main this and I gotta say Two handed Black Knight Ultra Great Sword has worked with me pretty well. Only downside it's kinda hard to upgrade it.

                                              Anybody know what the requirements is for this Bugsy Sword I know in DS3 its 50 Str? I am working on a Equal to both a Str. and Dex Build to even and I am at 33 Str. and 18 Dex. I need to know does Health and Endurance require it because I have 33 in Str and 18 in Dex and I have seen Fightin Cowboy get this with 33str and 18dex

                                                is there any special strategy going against the black knight that is more successful at dropping the sword.

                                                  Is anyone willing to trade a plus 5 black knight greatsword for a plus 5 black knight greataxe? add me on steam https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198075710846/

                                                    For a more in-depth answer about why you should use this weapon over black knight sword, look no further.

                                                    The swords actually have the exact same damage when upgraded to +5. The only difference is the scaling. Whereas BKS has a C for strength scaling, BKGS has a B. While it’s a small boon in damage that comes at a large sacrifice to speed, it means your enemies will suffer far more from a parry. This is a great weapon for Gwyn if you can parry well, as you can take him down in about three hits, or less if you use RTSR, Power Within, or both. But that last bit is not advised, because Gwyn will usually destroy you if you try him with only 20% health.

                                                      put roughly it ranks in damage due to weight and poise experiment with bkw and heavy weapons like your famous garnet try different weapon weight and poise damage weapons on heavily armored opponents the easier stunlock the density of magical energy (e.g crystal soul spear ,soul spear ,great heavy soul arrow and great soul arrow rank down in power but up in casting speed in tandem but fails only if the gathered energy is of different quality and property also tested on some leveled miracles due to both quality and the quantity of the energy gathered in the medium catalyst and matter really matters).

                                                      in ds series any catalyst or talisman with high magical adjustment will have low casting speed.

                                                      in ds world much as the real world more effective damaging and repairing in any world due to the indisputable concepts behind the any nature and its fields of study e.g electromagnetic properties of subatomic particles have an effect on itself and matter as a whole it even factors in ensuing time and space.

                                                      the soul series developers and also berserk writers was inspired by these beautiful facts in these spectacular masterpieces by these pheromones of nature (like miura story weapon for berserk the dragon slayer which looks like your crypt sword from ds2 in a lot of aspects ).

                                                      they rank for heavy armored and shielded humanoid and monstrious enemies due to poise damage as bkgs = bkga > bk halberd > bk sword.

                                                      note that the halberd was changed in latter game serieses to have greater dexterity to strength damage scaling B TO E compared to ds1 E TO D but it and all black knight weapons will always have the greater strength to dexterity weapon requirements to be able to smack down those big demons.
