Greatswords are a Weapon Category in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered. Greatswords are powerful blades with a wide swing radius and long reaching attacks, enabling the wielder to target multiple opponents within the radius of the swing motion. As a balancing factor, the weapons are considerably heavier, resulting in slower attacks and requiring more stats and more effort to swing. Given the strength and range of these sweeping attacks, Greatswords can stagger enemies long enough to land another strike/hit.

  • Pros: High Attack Power, wide swing radius, decent scaling, good as two-handed weapon.
  • Cons: Bad critical hit chance, heavy, slow and will bounce back in small spaces such as corridors.
