This page contains a list of weapons needed to unlock Knight's Honor achievement/trophy, as well as other rare weapons players may not come across. Weapons for the achievement need to be collected on one character to unlock the achievement/trophy. The Steam version, however, seems to track weapons across characters.

When playing single player, it's impossible to obtain every weapon in one playthrough, due to the boss Souls required in order to craft some of the boss weapons. It takes at least until New Game++ in order to get all as there are 3 different weapons needed to craft with the Soul of Sif. However, it is possible to obtain a boss soul by having another player give drop it for the host.

Having Additional Content does not have any effect on Knight's Honor achievement/trophy as only base game weapons are needed to unlock it.

Soul Weapons

These weapons are required to be crafted from the corresponding Boss Soul and the required +10 Normal weapon (except for catalysts, which cannot be upgraded). Soul weapons are crafted only by the Giant Blacksmith in Anor Londo.

      Dark souls 1 be like, oh you think you have everything now? Shame on you, here's a shopping list, go beat the game 3 more times.

        The wiki says here says that Steam tracks weapons across multiple characters, but I have my doubts. This is the last achievement I have been doing, and I'm 99% sure I've gotten every weapon on this list, but over multiple characters. Can anybody confirm for certain that the game tracks weapons across multiple characters?

          Should prob add the 2 tail cuts from the dlc to the list. I relied on your list and missed 1. Frowny face

              There is no luck stat in dark souls 1 which is what this page was linked from. This is obvious because one of the links in the list was about vagrant items..... also obviously luck and items in ds3 can lead to you finding rare drops. This is a sloppy page that needs to be changed

                The Symbol of Avarice is good for farming (item discovery +200), however it drains your health whilst wearing it. I would recommend a decent Vitality stat, or alternatively get the enemy's health low, then switch headgear mid-fight to the Symbol of Avarice.

                  dark wood grain ring should have a link in here as many new players will over look it or not know what to do to get the bodyguard to appear

                    If you go to the catacombs right after killing the Asylum Demon and go to the tomb of the giants (Make sure your strength is at 16 to be able to two-hand this majestic sword) Before entering the Tomb of the Giants make sure to pick up the Eyes of Death behind the big Titanite Demon. Then join the Gravelords covenant and you get the Gravelord sword and the Gravelord Sword Dance miracle before you kill the major Bosses! Now if you want to be OP, go kill Pinwheel before you go fight Taurus Demon for the ability to have 20 Estus Flasks and an OP Greatsword for your adventure!

                      If you want an easy kill on a Black Knight with a high chance to recieve a Black Knight Sword, progress to the first Black Knight in Undead Burg after clearing all the enemies up to this point. Farming enemies in the area or the enemies on the bridge in front of the Drake repeatedly will award you soft humanity (number in top left corner by your HP bar) which effects item discovery (also you want to be human). Aggro the Black Knight and run back past the Residence and up the small ladder by the enemies that toss Firebombs at you. He cannot follow you on to this platform, allowing you to easily kill him with Pyromancies/Ranged attacks. Almost guaranteed Black Knight item from him (Sword or Shield) with 5+ soft humanity and being human. This humanity threshold also seems to be present for the Black Knight with the Halberd in Darkroot Garden and the Black Knight with the Ultra Greatsword in the Undead Parish.

                        If you shoot off the red drakes tail at the bridge you will get a drake sword, which to me personally is a great starter weapon.
