Straight Swords are a Weapon Category in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered. Straight Swords have increased damage and reach, but are relatively slow when compared to Daggers. Although the swing speed is slower, the additional range makes up for it and Straight Swords are a great choice for attacking multiple opponents with one fast swing motion. Higher base physical damage balances out lesser Dexterity Scaling and Critical. Straight Swords are an ideal weapon for those wanting to make a balanced build for attack rating and speed.

  • Pros: Well-rounded weapon, light, with good range, decent damage and low Stamina consumption. Useful for attacking multiple opponents due to horizontal slashes.
  • Cons: Mediocre overall scaling and low Dexterity Scaling which affects Critical Damage Hit.
